Erythropoiesis requires considerable amounts of iron, so suppression of hepatic hepcidin synthesis by erythropoietic signals is of great physiological importance.
Administration of an [beta]-adrenergic stimulant did not elicit the erythropoietic effect, whereas a, [beta]-adrenergic stimulant induced erythropoiesis in an in vitro culture of erythroid progenitor cells [24].
This quality control initiative was a retrospective chart review of erythropoietic therapy within the Manitoba Renal Program.
Recheck CBC after iron infusions are complete to determine need for erythropoietic stimulating agents (ESA) therapy.

SAN DIEGO -- The two erythropoietic agents approved for treating anemia during chemotherapy were equivalent in a head-to-head trial presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Hematology.
The study will evaluate the ability of EPODURE Biopumps to replace most or all of the injections of EPO or other erythropoietic stimulating agents ("ESAs") currently used in standard care, while maintaining the patient's blood hemoglobin level within the desired range.
Although erythropoietin is the essential growth factor for RBC development, the erythropoietic cascade is modulated by a wide variety of other factors that can impede erythropoiesis when they are released during the acute-phase response that occurs in response to inflammatory or infectious disorders (see Table 2).
A diagnostic plot was developed that combined CHr and sTfR-F index, which allowed identification of four major categories of ID: (a) iron repletion, normal erythropoiesis; (b) patients with reduced iron supply, but not yet in an iron-deficient erythropoietic state; (c) depletion of storage and functional iron with decreased hemoglobinization of erythrocytes, classic ID; and (d) FID in an iron-replete state, with decreased hemoglobinization of erythrocytes.
The investigators selected adults with chemotherapy-related anemia with a diagnosis of colon or rectal cancer, excluding those with renal insufficiency, uncorrected iron deficiency, or recent use of an erythropoietic agent prior to starting epoetin or darbepoetin.
From those patients, the investigators selected adults with chemotherapy-related anemia with a diagnosis of colon or rectal cancer, excluding those with renal insufficiency, uncorrected iron deficiency, or recent use of an erythropoietic agent prior to starting epoetin or darbepoetin, Dr.
