Erythropoietin does not affect TNF and IL-6 production directly.

Abstract:

The tissue-protective action of erythropoietin (EPO) in animal models is often associated with reduced inflammation. However, there are many contrasting reports of the effect of EPO on the production of inflammatory cytokines induced by lipopolysaccharide (LPS) in vitro, with different papers reporting an inhibition, an upregulation, or a lack of effect. Negative results are likely underestimated by a publication bias. As EPO has anti-inflammatory actions in models associated with tissue inju...
