Granix (tbo-filgrastim) Disease Interactions

There are 3 disease interactions with Granix (tbo-filgrastim):


CSF (applies to Granix) glomerulonephritis

Major Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applicable conditions: Renal Dysfunction

Although it has been reported that renal dysfunction has no effect on the pharmacokinetics of colony stimulating factors (CSF), filgrastim and pegfilgrastim may cause glomerulonephritis. Symptoms include swelling of the face or ankles, dark colored urine, or blood in the urine, or a decrease in urine production. Advise patients to report signs or symptoms of glomerulonephritis immediately. Monitoring of patients with renal dysfunction is recommended.


Tbo-filgrastim (applies to Granix) sickle cell disease

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applicable conditions: Sickle Cell Anemia

Severe and sometimes fatal sickle cell crises have been reported in sickle cell disease patients receiving filgrastim products. Consider the potential risks and benefits prior to initiating therapy in these patients.


Tbo-filgrastim (applies to Granix) tumor growth

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applicable conditions: Myelodysplastic Disease

Tbo-filgrastim can act as a growth factor for any tumor type, including myeloid malignancies and myelodysplasia disease, diseases for which its use has not been approved.
