Circulating erythroid progenitors (BFU-E) in five anaemic preterm infants (haemoglobin less than 100 g/l) were about 2 and 4.4 times as abundant as in 10 preterm infants who were not anaemic and five healthy adults, respectively, and were significantly more responsive to low concentrations of recombinant human erythropoietin (rHuEpo) than those from healthy(More)
A study is reported of the numbers of nonimmunoglobulin-bearing lymphocytes specifically binding to Rhesus-D positive erythrocytes in the blood of Rhesus-dd infants born to either Rhesus-dd or Rhesus-Dd mothers, at birth and at 6 months of age. There was a significant increase in the number of such antigen-binding cells by age 6 months in babies born to(More)
Twenty four infants between 27 and 33 weeks' gestation were recruited into a double blind study to investigate the use of recombinant human erythropoietin (r-HuEpo) for the prevention of anaemia of prematurity. Between 50 and 150 U of r-HuEpo (n = 16) or placebo was administered subcutaneously twice a week from 7 days of age until discharge. There was a(More)
