Abstract

Plasma levels of erythropoietin (mU/ml) were measured in patients with congestive heart failure (CHF) (n = 108) and in a control group of normal subjects (n = 45). In normal subjects, plasma levels of erythropoietin were 1.9 ± 0.2. In patients with CHF, plasma levels of erythropoietin increased progressively according to New York Heart Association (NYHA) class (I: 1.4 ± 0.2, n=28; II:5.4 ± 0.8, n=27; III:9.6 ± 2, n= 32; IV: 34 ± 8, n = 21; F = 57.7, p
