Summary

Erythropoietin levels have been determined in 24 patients with different gynecologic malignancies, who were treated with cisplatinum and endoxan. A statistically highly significant decrease was demonstrated 2 h after starting treatment with a further significant decrease at 6 h. After 12 h the erythropoietin concentrations returned to values similar to those before treatment started.
