Description of item:
Erythropoietin is produced naturally in the body, primarily by the kidneys. This gives a signal to the bone marrow to produce red blood cells (RBCs), which carry oxygen in the blood. If the body does not produce enough erythropoietin, severe anemia (lack of oxygen reaching different parts of the body) can occur.
Global Anabolic's EPO is a synthetic erythropoietin (epoetin alfa) that is typically used to replace missing erythropoietin in people who cannot produce enough because their kidneys are not functioning properly. It is also used to treat anemia in cancer patients, certain surgical patients, and HIV patients who are taking the drug zidovudine. It can also be used to increase RBC production in certain patients scheduled for surgery. It takes at least 2 weeks and up to 6 weeks for a significant response to the drug to appear.
