In the light of the enthusiasm regarding the use of recombinant human erythropoietin (Epo) and its analogues for treatment of the anaemias of chronic renal failure and malignancies it is worth remembering that today's success has been based on a century of laborious research. The concept of the humoral regulation of haematopoiesis was first formulated in 1906. The term ‘erythropoietin’ for the erythropoiesis‐stimulating hormone was introduced in 1948. Native human Epo was isolated in 1977 and… Expand
