The mechanisms of erythrocyte recovery after BMT are not known. We investigated the respective role of marrow function and erythropoietin production in 31 ABMT and 47 allogeneic BMT by analysing peripheral counts, serum erythropoietin levels, and serum transferrin receptor (TfR) levels which have been shown to be a quantitative measurement of(More)
We studied 209 women during normal pregnancy, at delivery, or in the early postpartum, to determine whether erythropoietin (EPO) response was appropriate for the degree of anaemia. Serum immunoreactive EPO was measured in 74 nonpregnant women, including 33 normal subjects (16.4 +/- 4.1 mU/ml) and 41 women with hypoplastic, haemolytic, dyserythropoietic, or(More)
We studied 24 recipients of autologous bone marrow transplantation (ABMT) or allogeneic BMT (BMT) to determine whether impaired erythropoietin (Epo) response to anemia could delay full erythropoietic recovery. Observed Epo levels were compared with predicted levels based on the relationship between Epo and hematocrit in 125 control subjects. Circulating Epo(More)
