We characterized the erythropoietin response to anemia among 73 HIV-infected and 246 uninfected twelve-month old infants in Malawi. Among HIV-infected and uninfected infants, the fitted regression line was log10 plasma erythropoietin = 2.66 -0.011*hemoglobin, and log10 plasma erythropoietin = 2.90 -0.013*hemoglobin, respectively, and the slope of the regression lines was similar (p = 0.42). There is no evidence that the erythropoietin response to anemia in HIV-infected infants is inadequate compared to that in uninfected infants.
