e·ryth·ro·poi·e·tin

 (ĭ-rĭth′rō-poi-ē′tĭn)
n.
1. A glycoprotein hormone that stimulates the production of red blood cells by stem cells in bone marrow. Produced mainly by the kidneys, it is released in response to decreased levels of oxygen in body tissue.
2. Epoetin alfa.

[erythropoiet(ic) + -in.]

erythropoietin

(ɪˌrɪθrəʊpɔɪˈiːtɪn)
n
(Biochemistry) a hormone, secreted by the kidney in response to low levels of oxygen in the tissues, that increases the rate of erythropoiesis. It has been used as a performance-enhancing drug for athletes and racehorses. Abbreviation: EPO

While Zerenex or PA21 are likely to reach the renal market before an oral HIF-PH inhibitor, if they do reach the market, HIF-PH inhibitors may be a disruptive change to the erythropoetin stimulating agent (ESA) marketplace," said BioTrends Research Group Director Rob Dubman.
It is interesting to note that a number of common genes occur irrespective of the organ (heart, kidney, lung) effected in the context of adverse events: erythropoetin (EPO), nitric oxide synthase 1 (NOS1), angitotensin converting enzyme (ACE), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGFA), endothelin receptor (EDNRA) and the adrenergic [alpha]-1D-receptor (ADRA1D).
The improvement of ischemia/reperfusion injury by erythropoetin is not mediated through bone marrow cell recruitment in rats.
Preoperative Autologous Blood Donation Versus Erythropoetin
Transgenic DNA or tDNA does not stem from the person being tested but has been transferred into their body -- often via viruses -- in order to create performance-enhancing substances such as erythropoetin (EPO) for forming red blood cells.
Expensive therapies, such as erythropoetin had been developed for anemia control and improved quality of life.
Advanced renal impairment (GFR <15 mL/min), the dose and type of Gd contrast used (the use of large doses, particularly of linear nonionic agents), the multiple repeat administration of Gd contrast, the presence of proinflammatory conditions (particularly vascular complications), the administration of high doses of erythropoetin, and hyperphosphatemia (which increases the chance of retaining ionized Gd in tissues) all have been reported as risk factors for the development of NSF.
For example, [beta]-interferon and erythropoetin, molecules have been reported to express [alpha]2, 3 but not [alpha]2, 6 linked sialic acids which is characteristic of proteins expressed in CHO cell lines (25,26).

The French sports daily claim to have uncovered evidence showing that six blood samples taken from the Texan when he won the first of seven Tour titles contained traces of erythropoetin, which boosts the blood's capacity to carry oxygen.
