Erythropoietin-induced rheological changes of rat erythrocytes.


The effects of recombinant human erythropoietin (rhEPO) on red blood cell (RBC) rheological properties were investigated in rats. Rats received intramuscular injections of 150 U/kg/d rhEPO for 5 d, following which blood samples were obtained 1, 5 or 10 d later. RBC deformability was assessed by determining cell transit times through 5-microm micropores (CTA… (More)
