Akron’s Recombinant Human Granulocyte Macrophage-Colony Stimulating Factor (rHu GM-CSF) product is manufactured following all relevant cGMP guidelines for ancillary materials. Akron’s rHu GM-CSF is a single chain, approximately 15 kDa, non-glycosylated cytokine analog expressed in E. coli. It is purified in a pharmaceutical facility without the use of histidine tags and nickel columns. Sterile filtration with aseptic filling and lyophilization are performed in-house with Endotoxin and Sterility testing performed per USP/EP on the final product; the lyophilized product is packaged in sterile vials and available in 150 μg aliquots.

In vivo, GM-CSF is produced by many cell types. It stimulates the development of neutrophils and macrophages and stimulates proliferation and development of megakaryocytic and eosinophilic progenitor cells. Akron’s cGMP-compliant rHu GM-CSF can be used to promote the ex vivo expansion of dendritic cells (DCs), hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs), and monocyctes.
