Retrospective observational study OBJECTIVE.: To clarify the efficacy of recombinant human erythropoietin-beta (EPO-beta) injections during autologous blood donation (ABD) before spinal deformity surgery in children and teenagers.
This article was published in the following journal.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the usability of preoperative autologous blood donation (PAD) in pregnant women with placenta previa.
Some countries impose an upper age limit on whole blood and double RBC donation while others do not. We evaluated the safety of blood donation in older individuals (≥71 years), and their contributio...
It remains unclear whether preoperative blood donation is truly beneficial in liver surgery. The aim of this study was to compare surgical outcomes between patients receiving autologous and homologous...
To assess the prevalence of blood donation and associated factors in men who have sex with men (MSM) in China. Our observational study was conducted between January and August, 2017 in 3 cities: Guan...
The validity of studies relying on self-report of blood donation may be severely threatened by systematic errors.
Although several large well designed clinical trials have shown that erythropoietin which is commonly used to treat anemia associated with kidney disease, increases the risk of stroke and ...
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety of Beta-hCG + Erythropoietin in patients with acute ischemic stroke.
The primary objective is to evaluate the efficacy of the treatment in response rate terms. Otherwise this study wants to evaluate the safety of the treatment.
This study will examine the efficacy, safety and effect on hemoglobin levels, of once weekly subcutaneous injections of epoetin beta (30,000 IU) in anemic participants with non-Hodgkin's l...
The purpose of this study is to compare the hemoglobin and hematocrit variability between once and three times weekly erythropoietin therapy for the anemia in patients with maintenance dia...
Tissue, organ, or gamete donation intended for a designated recipient.
This recombinant erythropoietin, a 165-amino acid glycoprotein (about 62% protein and 38% carbohydrate), regulates red blood cell production. Epoetin alfa is produced by Chinese hamster ovary cells into which the human erythropoietin gene has been inserted. (USP Dictionary of USAN and International Drug Names, 1996).
Reinfusion of blood or blood products derived from the patient's own circulation. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Cell surface proteins that bind erythropoietin with high affinity and trigger intracellular changes influencing the behavior of cells.
Recovery of blood lost from surgical procedures for reuse by the same patient in AUTOLOGOUS BLOOD TRANSFUSIONS. It is collected during (intraoperatively) or after completion of (postoperatively) the surgical procedures.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
