Red Cell Storage Duration Study

2014-08-27 03:18:47 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The RECESS study will compare the effects of transfusing red blood cell units stored <= 10 days vs. red blood cell units stored >= 21 days, in patients who are undergoing complex cardiac surgery and are likely to need a red blood cell transfusion. The primary hypothesis is that there is a clinically important difference between the effects of shorter-storage red cell units and longer-storage red cell units on clinical outcomes and mortality risk.

Real Age: Red Blood Cell Aging During Storage.

During cold storage, some red blood cell (RBC) units age more rapidly than others. Yet, the FDA has set a uniform storage limit of 42 days. Objectives of this review are to present evidence for an RBC...

A novel approach to stabilize fetal cell-free DNA fraction in maternal blood samples for extended period of time.

A review of blood usage and wastage in a tertiary heart center.

Blood is a vital resource that its utilization is ever increasing throughout the world and blood wastage is a global challenge that needs to be controlled. Most blood resources are used during complic...

Nucleated red blood cells as a novel indicator of CD34 cell content in umbilical cord blood.

Umbilical cord blood (UCB) has become an important source of transplantable CD34 hematopoietic progenitor cells. Cord blood banks (CBBs) can increase their efficiency by minimizing the processing of U...

Diminished effectiveness of INSULIN in lowering blood sugar levels: requiring the use of 200 units or more of insulin per day to prevent HYPERGLYCEMIA or KETOSIS. It can be caused by the presence of INSULIN ANTIBODIES or the abnormalities in insulin receptors (RECEPTOR, INSULIN) on target cell surfaces. It is often associated with OBESITY; DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS; INFECTION; and certain rare conditions. (from Stedman, 25th ed)

A system of physical units in which the fundamental quantities are length, time, mass, electric current, temperature, luminous intensity, and amount of substance, and the corresponding units are the meter, second, kilogram, ampere, kelvin, candela, and mole. The system has been given official status and recommended for universal use by the General Conference on Weights and Measures.

A class of terpenes (the general formula C30H48) formed by the condensation of six isoprene units, equivalent to three terpene units.

The cells in the erythroid series derived from MYELOID PROGENITOR CELLS or from the bi-potential MEGAKARYOCYTE-ERYTHROID PROGENITOR CELLS which eventually give rise to mature RED BLOOD CELLS. The erythroid progenitor cells develop in two phases: erythroid burst-forming units (BFU-E) followed by erythroid colony-forming units (CFU-E); BFU-E differentiate into CFU-E on stimulation by ERYTHROPOIETIN, and then further differentiate into ERYTHROBLASTS when stimulated by other factors.
