Blood-stage malaria infection modulates the production of renal pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines in resistant versus susceptible strains of mice differentially. However, despite the fluctuations of renal cytokines, the degree of anemia is the main determinant for Epo production during blood-stage malaria while kidney cytokines may exert secondary influences.
