Although a decrease in the plasma GCSF concentration was observed in all patients who achieved self-sustaining hemopoiesis following BMT or immunosuppressive therapy, it was lower in patients undergoing BMT as compared with those receiving immunosuppressive therapy for any given degree of neutropenia. Thrombopoietin (TPO) TPO is a cytokine that supports megakaryocyte colony formation, increases megakaryocyte size and ploidy, and is the most important regulator of platelet production (Kaushansky, 1995).

1995b) have demonstrated elevated plasma/serum levels of flt-3L in a small number of patients with acquired AA. Recently, Wodnar-Filipowicz et al. (1996) studied circulating levels of flt-3L in 34 patients with AA using ELISA. At diagnosis, flt-3L levels were highly elevated in patients with AA compared with normal controls, 2653 Ϯ 353 pg/ml versus 14 Ϯ 39 pg/ml. Flt-3L levels returned to near normal levels within the first 3 months following BMT or successful immunosuppressive therapy (100 Ϯ 31 and 183 Ϯ 14 pg/ml, respectively).
