Serum erythropoietin (Ep) levels were measured by radioimmunoassay in 70 patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) to evaluate the influence of the mode of dialysis on the relationship between serum Ep levels and the severity of anemia. Thirty-five patients were on hemodialysis (HD), seven were on intermittent peritoneal dialysis (IPD), and 28 were on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). Compared to HD, CAPD patients had higher serum Ep (CAPD), 46.1 +/- 13.4 v HD, 16.9 +/- 2.2 mU/mL) and hematocrit (CAPD, 33.9 +/- 2.5 v HD, 24.8 +/- 1.4%; P less than 0.05). The Ep and Hct values for IPD patients were intermediate between the other two groups. Serum Ep levels were higher in CAPD patients in the first 4 weeks of initiation of CAPD (144 +/- 35 mU/mL, n = 6) than later (39 +/- 6.4 mU/mL, n = 24). A significant fluctuation in serum Ep and Hct values was noted in patients on all three modes of dialysis, when multiple samples were obtained at different time intervals. There was a weak correlation between serum Ep and Hct in the three groups of dialysis patients; r = 0.36, P less than 0.005. The data suggest that CAPD provides a better biochemical milieu for Ep production and responsiveness than HD treatment of ESRD.
