Dainiak, N., Gent, R.N., Carr, Z., et al. (2011). First Global Consensus for Evidence-Based Management of the Hematopoietic Syndrome Resulting from Exposure to Ionizing Radiation. Disaster Medicine and Public Health Preparedness. 5(3):202-12.
A panel convened by the World Health Organization conducted a literature review to develop evidence-based guidelines for the management of hematopoietic syndrome resulting from exposure to ionizing radiation. Although the panel determined the evidence was weak, members strongly recommended granulocyte colony-stimulating factor or granulocyte macrophage colony-stimulating factor. The use of erythropoiesis-stimulating agents or hematopoietic stem cell transplantation was less strongly supported by the evidence.
