So if the low WBC is assoc w/ an autoimmune disorder,then trt the disorder. If assoc w/b12 deficiency, treat w/b12. Some meds, viral infections, diseases which suppress the bone marrow, among other causes may also be assoc w/ low WBC. Treat the disorder. Neupogen can be used as treatment in cases associated with cancer?
