11/08/1994 - "Using a model of thrombocytopenia in sheep, we have identified an active substance called megapoietin, which stimulated an increase in the number and ploidy of megakaryocytes in bone marrow culture. "
09/01/1994 - "During persistent thrombocytopenia, megapoietin levels remained maximally elevated. "
09/01/1994 - "Although not elevated after 3 hours of thrombocytopenia, megapoietin increased after 8 hours to 48% of the maximal level, which occurred after 24 hours of thrombocytopenia. "
09/01/1994 - "Levels of megapoietin were inversely and proportionally related to the platelet count during thrombocytopenia and the subsequent rebound thrombocytosis. "
09/01/1994 - "Appearance of a megakaryocyte growth-promoting activity, megapoietin, during acute thrombocytopenia in the rabbit."
