BACKGROUND Thrombopoietin (TPO) is a key cytokine involved in the regulation of megakaryocytopoiesis and platelet production. The aim of the present study was to test whether platelet donation is associated with changes in the serum TPO levels in healthy donors undergoing plateletpheresis. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS The study group consisted of 23 healthy donors undergoing single-donor plateletpheresis for the first time. Serum TPO levels and platelet counts were determined before platelet… CONTINUE READING
