No acute change of serum erythropoietin in response to hypocalcemia or antihypertensive agents in uremic patients.

Abstract

Endogenous erythropoietin (EPO) secretion can still be modulated in patients with end-stage renal failure but only in response to strong stimuli. Thus even anephric dialysis patients are able to increase EPO production acutely when exposed to a marked hypoxic stimulus. The present study was designed to test the hypothesis that a decrease of plasma calcium… (More)
