Erythropoietin in ovarian cancer


Apparently it has now been shown that ovarian cancer cells become quite resistant to paclitaxel, if they are injected with erythropeitin. This is important because this is the first time it has been shown that erythropoeitin can induce cancer cells to become resistant to chemotherapy.

I suspect that more cancer cell lines also have this effect.
