Technical Data
Erythropoietin, Recombinant, Human (EPO)
Molecular Biology Storage: -70CShipping: Dry Ice
Erythropoietin, ~34-36kD, normally produced in the kidney and liver, is the principle hormone involved in the regulation of erythrocyte differentiation and the maintenance of a physiological level of circulating erythrocyte mass. Indicated for treatment of neutropenia or anemia secondary to ZDV- or Ganciclovir-induced bone marrow suppression (most effective in patients with endogenous EPO levels <500IU/ml).
