    We used RNAase protection assays to measure low levels of erythropoietin messenger RNA (EPO mRNA) in the organs of unstimulated rats, and to compare basal and stimulated levels of EPO mRNA in the kidneys and extrarenal organs of rats rendered uremic by subtotal nephrectomy, with pair-fed...

  • Anemia management and chronic renal failure progression. Rossert, Jerome; Froissart, Marc; Jacquot, Christian // Kidney International Supplement;Dec2005, Issue 99, pS76 

    Analysis of the biologic effects of erythropoietin and pathophysiology of chronic kidney diseases (CKD) suggests that treatment with erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESA) could slow the progression of CKD. By decreasing hypoxia and oxidative stress, it could prevent the development of...

  • Mimicking Hypoxia to Treat Anemia: HIF-Stabilizer BAY 85-3934 (Molidustat) Stimulates Erythropoietin Production without Hypertensive Effects. Flamme, Ingo; Oehme, Felix; Ellinghaus, Peter; Jeske, Mario; Keldenich, Jörg; Thuss, Uwe // PLoS ONE;Nov2014, Vol. 9 Issue 11, p1 

    Oxygen sensing by hypoxia-inducible factor prolyl hydroxylases (HIF-PHs) is the dominant regulatory mechanism of erythropoietin (EPO) expression. In chronic kidney disease (CKD), impaired EPO expression causes anemia, which can be treated by supplementation with recombinant human EPO (rhEPO)....
