Evaluation of erythropoietic activity on the basis of the red cell and reticulocyte distribution widths during epoetin beta therapy in patients undergoing cardiac surgery.

Abstract

The changes in the red cell and reticulocyte distribution widths during preoperative treatment with recombinant human erythropoietin (rhEPO) were evaluated in a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in cardiac surgery patients. The increases in the reticulocyte count, in the hemoglobin and in all distribution widths are the expression of the marked… (More)
