Experiments were carried out in albino rats to find out the effect of propranolol, priscol and atropine on post-hemorrhagic erythropoiesis. Administration of either propranolol or priscol decreased reticulocyte response following hemorrhage, whereas administration of atropine produced no change. The results indicate that alpha as well as beta adrenergic systems participate in the control of erythropoiesis following hemorrhage, whereas parasympathetic system does not take part.
