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. Each horizontal bar indicates the mean value in the group.

Even in patients who respond to immunosuppressive therapy, mild thrombocytopenia and decreased megakaryocyte numbers in the bone marrow are present in the majority. These ﬁndings may explain why plasma TPO levels remain high in AA patients who achieved self-sustaining hemopoiesis and further support the model that plasma TPO levels are regulated not only by blood platelet count but also by the number of megakaryocytes or megakaryocyte progenitors in the bone marrow. , 1990). 4. Plasma concentrations of soluble stem cell factor (SCF) in 85 patients with aplastic anemia and 12 normal controls.
