Could an erythropoietin receptor be the cure for neurodegenerative diseases? – Medical News Bulletin

An alternate erythropoietin receptor found in insects may be useful in leading the discovery of a cure for neurodegenerative diseases in humans. Erythropoietin (Epo) is a hormone that promotes the production of red blood cells (erythropoiesis) to improve oxygen supply to tissues and protect nerve cells from dying. Clinically, erythropoietin has been used as a…
