GM-CSF-Based Treatments in COVID-19: Reconciling Opposing Therapeutic Approaches

Granulocyte–macrophage colony-stimulating factor, a myelopoietic growth factor and pro-inflammatory cytokine, plays a critical role in alveolar macrophage homeostasis, lung inflammation and immunological disease. Both administration and inhibition of GM-CSF are currently being therapeutically tested in COVID-19 clinical trials.
