Enthusiasm for erythropoietin (EPO) as a broad cytoprotective agent continues to increase at an almost exponential rate. The premise that EPO was required only for erythropoiesis was eventually shed by recent work demonstrating the existence of EPO and its receptor in other organs and tissues outside of the liver and the kidney, such as the brain and heart. As a result, EPO has been identified as a possible candidate in the formulation of therapeutic strategies for both cardiac and nervous… CONTINUE READING
