Current evidence suggests that angiotensin II may be involved in the regulation of renal erythropoietin (EPO) production. The present study assessed the role of angiotensin II (A II) in different doses in the control of EPO production in humans. In a parallel, randomized, placebo-controlled open design, 60 healthy male volunteers received a 6-h intravenous(More)
AIMS The present study assessed the hypothesis that the beta2 sympathomimetic fenoterol influences the production of erythropoietin (EPO) by activation of the renin angiotensin system (RAS), i.e. angiotensin II. METHODS In an open, parallel, randomized study healthy volunteers received i.v. either placebo (electrolyte solution), fenoterol or fenoterol in(More)
