The core temperature drops below 35 °C (→ A). Immersion in water at 5 – 10 °C can lead to hypothermia after only 10 minutes (depending on the amount of “padding”). Wearing wet clothing in a strong wind and in an ambient temperature of 0 °C can bring about hypothermia in less than one hour. Both the elderly (restricted thermoregulatory range) and infants (especially newborns), who have a relatively high body surface area to mass ratio, low resting heat production, and a thin subcutaneous fat layer are particularly at risk.

There are additional paracrine factors that regulate blood cell formation in the bone marrow. Because of their action in cell culture, they are sometimes also called colony-stimulating factors (CSFs). Other stem cell growth factors are stem cell factor (SCF = steel factor = c-kit ligand) and fit3 ligand (FL). They trigger the release of synergistically active factors, such as CSF and interleukins (IL‑3, IL‑6, IL‑11, IL‑12) and are inhibited, among others, by transforming growth factor β (TGF-β) and tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α).
