Patients with anaemia can shift from kidney to liver production of erythropoietin as shown by glycoform analysis

Lönnberg, Maria; Garle, Mats; Lönnberg, Lina; Birgegård, Gunnar


This glycoform analysis has made it possible to affirm that some anaemic patients can increase their liver-production of EPO. The use of such a method can give better insight into the regulation of non-renal endogenous EPO production, a potential source of EPO intended to replace administration of exogenous EPO.
