Erythropoietin production in healthy volunteers subjected to controlled haemorrhage: evidence against a major role for adenosine.

Abstract

1. This study was carried out to assess the role of adenosine in the regulation of human erythropoietin (EPO) production. To this end we investigated in healthy volunteers whether the nonspecific adenosine antagonist theophylline increases and the adenosine uptake inhibitor dipyridamole decreases EPO production in response to an haemorrhage of 750 ml. 2… (More)
