Abstract

It is a well known fact that humans with a severe kidney impairment, or after removal of both of the organs, develop a life-threatening anemia which can be alleviated by the administration of erythropoietin (EPO). The kidney, however, is apparently not the only source of plasma EPO (Fischer et al., 1962; Waldmann and Rosse, 1962) and Jacobson (1962) estimated that other sites are responsible for as much as 10% of the total overall quantity.
