Clinical studies using IL-3 and IL-6 alone or in combination for adult bone marrow failure, HIV-associated cytopenias, and congenital amegakaryocytic 24 2 thrombocytopenia have demonstrated limited efficacy and/or significant toxicity, thus making their therapeutic use impractical (147–160). Recombinant IL-11 is the only thrombopoietic growth factor that has been approved by the FDA for the prevention of severe thrombocytopenia after myelosuppressive chemotherapy for nonmyeloid malignancies (161), although significant side-effects such as fluid retention and atrial arrhythmias may limit its use (162, 163).
