Providing information about erythropoiesis and thrombocytopenias can help the physician choose a clinical pathway and monitor therapy.
Its primary action is to stimulate erythropoiesis via promoting proliferation, differentiation, and maturation of erythroid progenitor cells in the bone marrow (pluripotent stem cells, burst-forming units [BFUs], and colony-forming units [CFUs]) into mature erythrocytes (see Figure 3) (Fisher, 2003).
