For Platelets:

Recombinant Interleukin-11 (r-Hu-IL-11) is a genetically produced form of a naturally occurring human hormone that stimulates the body's platelet production. Interleukin-11 is important in managing patients who receive drug therapy that tends to suppress the development of platelets, such as chemotherapy.
