In the human fetus, liver macrophages appear to be the primary source of erythropoietin (Epo). Epo production shifts from the liver to peritubular cells in the kidney sometime during the 3rd trimester. Some preterm infants experience a hyporegenerative anemia that appears to be caused by inadequate Epo production. It is ...
