Erythropoietin resistance: the role of inflammation and pro‐inflammatory cytokines

Up to 10% of patients with renal disease receiving recombinant human erythropoietin (rHuEPO) therapy show poor responsiveness to the drug. Even in patients who do respond to rHuEPO, there is a marked variability in drug sensitivity. Several factors have been recognized as causing resistance to rHuEPO, notably iron deficiency, infection/inflammation, and underdialysis. However, when ...

Poor response to recombinant erythropoietin is associated with loss of T‐lymphocyte CD28 expression and altered interleukin‐10 production
