Mission and Goals

The Neutropenia, Infection, and Myelosuppression Study Group addresses common immune system adverse effects of cancer chemotherapies and promotes the development of guidelines, such as the International Pediatric Fever and Neutropenia Guideline for the empiric management of pediatric fever and neutropenia. The prevention of febrile neutropenia in adults is another important topic of interest and research.
