From: Combined pretreatment with 18F-FDG PET/CT and Comet assay guides the concurrent chemoradiotherapy of locally advanced cervical cancer: study protocol for a randomized controlled trial

Neutrophil count (× 109/L) Measures
≥ 1.5 On time
< 1.5 1. Delay for 1 week and repeat the blood cell count at 28 days
2. If absolute neutrophil count (ANC) is more than 1.5 × 109/L, continue to use full dose chemotherapy without G-CSF
3. If ANC < 1.5 × 109/L, consider adding G-CSF for 7 days on day 28
Blood count on day 35
If ANC is more than 1.5 × 109/L, continue to use full dose chemotherapy
4. In follow-up cycles consider using G-CSF
5. If the patient fails to recover at 35 days (ANC < 1.5 × 109/L), terminate chemotherapy
