The major exclusion criteria were: pregnancy (diagnosed by detection of human chorionic gonadotropine levels), patients with hypersensitivity to erythropoietin [beta], administration of other ESA, hemoglobin (Hb) levels above 10.
Two weeks prior to presentation with stent thrombosis the patient had a 50% dose increase of long term erythropoietin.
Patients with Hb approaching 10 g/dL or less (tested from baseline through week 48) were randomized to ribavirin dose reduction (249 patients) in 200-mg increments (first increment of 400 mg for initial 1,400-mg daily doses) at the investigators' discretion, or to erythropoietin (251 patients) at 40,000 U/wk, modifiable to 20,000 U/wk or 60,000 U/wk at the investigator's discretion.
Optimal erythropoietin therapy maintains near normal haemoglobin levels and has been demonstrated to reduce the incidence of cardiovascular morbidity and repeated blood transfusions (Galliford et al.
In 1957, a series of experiments by Jacobson and colleagues established that during hypoxia, there is an absence of erythropoietin activity in nephrectomized animals, thus establishing the role of the kidney in erythropoiesis (Jacobson, Goldwasser, Fried, & Plzak, 1957).
In addition, the form of erythropoietin used in these experiments did not elevate red blood cell counts.
There were no serious reactions to Erythropoietin or Iron sucrose Conclusion: It is concluded that recombinant erythropoietin along with iron sucrose safely increased the haemoglobin level in 10 days to the target level thus rendering the patients fit for surgery and, none of the selected patients needed blood transfusion.
Erythropoietin by interfering in the cytokine complicated play important role in preventing from kidney ischemic reperfusion harm.
Erythropoietin can be a very effective treatment for CRF anemia in cats, rapidly raising the PCV and helping cats to feel remarkably better, but there is a potentially serious side effect that must be considered.
Physiological stimuli for erythropoietin production/ release
Biochemist Eugene Goldwasser, who had the drive and tenacity to spend more than 20 years isolating the first minute amounts of human erythropoietin, died at age 88 on Dec.
