Numerous reports exist on haematological pathology in alcoholism. However, no data are available regarding a potential involvement of haematopoietic growth factors in the recovery from alcohol-induced haematological abnormalities upon abstinence. Therefore, thrombopoietin (TPO) and erythropoietin (EPO) serum levels along with haematological and other routine laboratory parameters were closely followed in 14 thoroughly characterized male alcoholic patients over one to five months of controlled… CONTINUE READING
