It's called granulocyte colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) and stimulates the bone marrow to produce a particular type of cell (granulocyte).

It would seem there are three types of G-CSF from multiple manufacturers. The site below is British but explains things nicely in plain language. A search engine will give many more results and help with names if they are different. http://www.cancerresearchuk.org/cancer-help/about-cancer/treatment/cancer-drugs/gcsf

"There are different types (medications), including:
Lenograstim (Granocyte)
Filgrastim (Neupogen, Zarzio, Nivestim, Ratiograstim)
Long acting (pegylated) filgrastim (pegfilgrastim, Neulasta) and lipegfilgrastim (Longquex)"

Good luck.
