Dynamic changes in serum erythropoietin levels in solid tumour patients undergoing 41.8 degrees C whole body hyperthermia and/or chemotherapy.

Abstract

Whole Body Hyperthermia (WBH) has been shown to have physiological effects on myeloid and megakaryocytic haematopoietic tissue via both cytokine induction, as well as hormonal changes. In order to extend this knowledge base to the erythroid cells, endogenous erythropoietin (EPO) levels were studied in 17 cancer patients receiving 41.8 degrees C WBH and/or… (More)
