Chronic excessive erythrocytosis induces endothelial activation and damage in mouse brain.

Abstract

Excessive erythrocytosis results in severely increased blood viscosity, which may have significant detrimental effects on endothelial cells and, ultimately, function of the vascular endothelium. Because blood-brain barrier stability is crucial for normal physiological function, we used our previously characterized erythropoietin-overexpressing transgenic… (More)
