For any given degree of anemia, the plasma EPO level was lower in patients of the BMT group than in patients receiving immunosuppressive therapy. Furthermore, plasma EPO levels were inappropriately decreased in more than half of the patients who received BMT compared with iron-deficient patients. Cyclosporin probably caused the decreased plasma EPO levels in BMT patients. 1. Plasma concentrations of erythropoietin (EPO) in 75 patients with aplastic anemia (AA) and 15 normal controls.
