High chemical levels in blood stream indicate need for action to avoid heart attack, death

... treatment has involved a combination of synthetic erythropoietin and iron. Erythropoietin is a hormone produced by the kidneys that stimulates production of red blood cells. Its synthetic, or man-made, form is costly and not appropriate for all patients. Researchers at The Heart Hospital in London and West Middle...

Anemic children with cancer benefit from erythropoietin

...ing chemotherapy can benefit from a weekly dose of erythropoietin (EPO), according to researchers at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. The drug reduces the need for red blood cell transfusions and improves quality of life in children whose anemia is corrected by this treatment, according to results of a Phase ...

"Given that these technologies are already being developed, if we don't have legitimate, approved ways of con...

Jefferson researchers find drug may give some cardiac protection 24 hours after heart attack

...mic heart. Darbepoietin is a long-acting cousin of erythropoietin (EPO), which has been shown to offer some protection to the heart from injury from ischemia, or a lack of oxygen. In previous studies, Dr. Koch had given EPO at the time of simulated heart attack in an another animal model, and found it protected the...
