BACKGROUND Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors have been reported to reduce the response to erythropoietin (EPO) administration in chronic hemodialysis patients, but the mechanism for this effect has not yet been clarified. To clarify the mechanism of ACE inhibitors- and angiotensin II type 1 (AT1) receptor antagonist-induced anemia in hemodialysis patients, we examined the effect of ACE inhibitors and AT1 receptor antagonist on burst-forming units-erythroid (BFU-E) in the peripheral… CONTINUE READING
