In brief: Yes!!

This is exactly what Neulasta (pegfilgrastim) does.
It increases your white blood cell count, and it can sometimes raise it to very high levels.

In brief: Possibly

Neulasta (pegfilgrastim) is indicated to increase the peripheral neutrophil count and thereby decrease infection in febrile neutropenic patients with non-myeloid malignancies receiving myelosuppressive anti-cancer drugs associated with a clinically significant incidence of febrile neutropenia.
