The effects of iron deficiency on estradiol-induced suppression of erythropoietin induction in rats: implications of pregnancy-related anemia Short title: IRON AND ESTRADIOL EFFECTS ON EPO

Abstract

Pregnant women often develop anemia concomitant with the increase in serum erythropoietin levels, which are actually lower than those of non-pregnant anemic women due to the possible suppressive effect of endogenous estradiol on erythropoietin induction. The anemia, derived from hemodilution, does not act as a drive for erythropoietin induction, but iron… (More)
