Abstract: The" su.ccessful use of granulocyte .,macrophage--eoiony stimulating Jaetor (GM-CSF) .and granulocycte colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) m,the enhancement of ,. , n eutrophil recovery in several hematological• disorders has ,raised the .. questiQll •of what are the structural differences under the influence of thesecytokines. Human neutrophils were isolated using density ,gradient centrifu,gation ',and .processed for electflon microscopic study.
