Anemia: progress in molecular mechanisms and therapies

  title={Anemia: progress in molecular mechanisms and therapies},
  author={Vijay G Sankaran and Mitchell J Weiss},
  journal={Nature Medicine},
Anemia is a major source of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Here we review recent insights into how red blood cells (RBCs) are produced, the pathogenic mechanisms underlying various forms of anemia, and novel therapies derived from these findings. It is likely that these new insights, mainly arising from basic scientific studies, will contribute immensely to both the understanding of frequently debilitating forms of anemia and the ability to treat affected patients. Major worldwide diseases… CONTINUE READING
