Abstract

Recombinant human erythropoietin (rHuEPO) has been reported to induce hypertension. We investigated the effect of a single injection of rHuEPO on blood pressure in patients receiving hemodialysis (HD) and in patients with predialysis chronic renal failure (CRF). Forty-one patients receiving HD and 36 patients with predialysis CRF received an intravenous injection of rHuEPO, and blood pressure and plasma endothelin-1 were measured before and 30 min after the injection. Mean blood pressure was increased significantly in HD patients, but not in CRF patients (HD: 103+/-5 to 105+/-6 mmHg, p<0.05; CRF: 103+/-4 to 103+/-6, NS). The percentage of patients with increased mean blood pressure of more than 10 mmHg after rHuEPO injection was significantly larger in the HD than in the CRF group (27.0% vs. 5.5%, p<0.01). A positive correlation was found between changes in endothelin-1 level and mean blood pressure in the HD (r=0.43, p<0.01) but not in predialysis chronic renal failure. In conclusion, a single injection of rHuEPO increased blood pressure with a positive correlation with endothelin-1 release in hemodialysis patients, but not in predialysis chronic renal failure patients.

Anemia

Anemia develops when your blood lacks enough healthy red blood cells. Anemia of inflammation (AI, also called anemia of chronic disease) is a common, typically normocytic, normochromic anemia that is caused by an underlying inflammatory disease. Here is the latest research on anemia.
