Erythropoietin (EPO), also referred to as hematopoietin or hemopoietin, is a glycoprotein that is responsible for the production of erythrocytes in the body. In the fetal stage, this protein is produced in the liver. However, in adulthood it is produced in the kidneys. During anemic conditions, the body produces an excess of erythropoietin to maintain a normal level of red blood cells. When the endogenous production of erythropoietin is disrupted because of illness or medications, normal red blood cell levels are maintained by an injecting erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESAs). These agents are similar to natural erythropoietin in structure and function. They can be produced by recombinant DNA technology and are used in the treatment of anemia resulting from renal disease, cancer, HIV, injuries, or neurological conditions.
