Erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESAs) remain first-choice to treat symptomatic anemia and delay transfusion dependence in most patients with lower-risk myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) without del(5q). Deferasirox increased erythroid responses in some lower-risk MDS patients in clinical trials, and adding low-dose deferasirox to ESA treatment may further improve erythroid response.

Decreased production of erythropoietin (EPO) is a major cause of anemia associated with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Treatment with recombinant human EPO (rHuEPO) improves patients' quality of life a...
Lenalidomide treatment in lower risk myelodysplastic syndromes-The experience of a Czech hematology center. (Positive effect of erythropoietin ± prednisone addition to lenalidomide in refractory or relapsed patients).
Lenalidomide therapy represents meaningful progress in the treatment of anemic patients with myelodysplastic syndromes with del(5q). We present our initial lenalidomide experience and the positive eff...
Premature infants are particularly vulnerable to brain injuries with associated cognitive and behavioural deficits. The worldwide first randomised interventional multicentre trial investigating the ne...
Erythropoietin may have neuroprotective potential after ischemia of the central nervous system. Here, we conducted a study to characterize the protective effects of erythropoietin on retinal ganglion ...
Excessive eryptosis has been found in maintained hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis patients. Signaling of triggering eryptosis includes oxidative stress, increased cytosolic Ca2+-activity, and ceram...
Although several large well designed clinical trials have shown that erythropoietin which is commonly used to treat anemia associated with kidney disease, increases the risk of stroke and ...
A strategy for optimizing erythropoietin therapy in patients with erythropoietin resistance. A multi-centered, open-label, randomized, controlled trial.
Randomized, double blind, placebo controlled, prospective trial investigating the effect of erythropoietin in renal transplantation. The investigators postulate that erythropoietin reduc...
This study evaluates the efficacy of erythropoietin in refractory autoimmune encephalitis. Ten patients will receive 100 IU/kg of erythropoietin 3 times a week for 12 weeks.
This study evaluate the effect of erythropoietin infusion on reducing ischemic-reperfusion injuries and improvement of cardiac function after Coronary artery bypass graft surgery. one thi...
The cells in the erythroid series derived from MYELOID PROGENITOR CELLS or from the bi-potential MEGAKARYOCYTE-ERYTHROID PROGENITOR CELLS which eventually give rise to mature RED BLOOD CELLS. The erythroid progenitor cells develop in two phases: erythroid burst-forming units (BFU-E) followed by erythroid colony-forming units (CFU-E); BFU-E differentiate into CFU-E on stimulation by ERYTHROPOIETIN, and then further differentiate into ERYTHROBLASTS when stimulated by other factors.
Cell surface proteins that bind erythropoietin with high affinity and trigger intracellular changes influencing the behavior of cells.
ERYTHROPOIETIN prepared by recombinant DNA technology.
Glycoprotein hormone, secreted chiefly by the kidney in the adult and the liver in the fetus, that acts on erythroid stem cells of the bone marrow to stimulate proliferation and differentiation.
This recombinant erythropoietin, a 165-amino acid glycoprotein (about 62% protein and 38% carbohydrate), regulates red blood cell production. Epoetin alfa is produced by Chinese hamster ovary cells into which the human erythropoietin gene has been inserted. (USP Dictionary of USAN and International Drug Names, 1996).
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
Clinical trials are a set of procedures in medical research conducted to allow safety (or more specifically, information about adverse drug reactions and adverse effects of other treatments) and efficacy data to be collected for health interventions (e.g...
