  • PREDNISONE STIMULATION OF ERYTHROPOIESIS IN LEUKEMIC CHILDREN DURING REMISSION AMERICAN JOURNAL OF HEMATOLOGY Amylon, M. D., Perrine, S. P., Glader, B. E. 1986; 23 (2): 179-181

    Abstract:

    Children with acute leukemia in remission manifest reticulocytosis and a significant increase in hemoglobin concentration (mean increment of 2.3 +/- 1.1 g/dl) following prednisone pulse therapy. This hemoglobin increment is not associated with changes in serum erythropoietin activity. It is speculated that this stimulation of red cell production may be a direct effect of steroids on erythroid progenitor cells.
