Increase in endogenous thrombopoietin in healthy donors after automated plateletpheresis.

Abstract

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… (More)
