Storage of cord blood attracts private-sector interest. (1/275)

Storage of cord blood from their babies can cost parents several hundred dollars, and some private companies are already offering the service. Janis Hass reports that some Canadian specialists question the value of the banks.  (+info)

Cord blood banking: volume reduction of cord blood units using a semi-automated closed system. (2/275)

Clinical evidence indicates that placental/umbilical cord blood (CB) is an alternative source of haematopoietic stem cells for bone marrow reconstitution. To establish a CB bank large panels of frozen, HLA-typed CB units need to be stored. Cryopreserved, unprocessed CB units require vast storage space. This study describes a method, using the Optipress II Automated Blood Component Extractor (Opti II) from Baxter Healthcare Corporation, to reduce the volume of the CB collection, preserving the quantity and quality of the progenitor cells, in a closed system. The CB collection was transferred to a triple bag system, centrifuged to produce a buffy coat layer and processed using a standard Opti II protocol to separate the whole blood into three components: plasma, buffy coat and buffy coat-depleted red cell concentrate. The buffy coat volume was standardised to 25 ml; mean reduced volume of 24.5 ml (s.d. 1.5 ml) with 53% red cell depletion. Good recovery of cells was observed: 92%, 98%, 96% and 106% recovery of nucleated, mononuclear, CD34+ and total colony-forming cells, respectively. Using this method for processing CB units reduces storage requirement by two-thirds but preserves the quantity and quality of the progenitor cells.  (+info)

Clinicians' satisfaction with a hospital blood transfusion service: a marketing analysis of a monopoly supplier. (3/275)

One of the objectives of the NHS reforms is to improve customer focus within the health service. In a study to assess the quality of customer service provided by the Edinburgh and South East Scotland Blood Transfusion Service a 19 item questionnaire survey of the main clinical users of the service was performed to ascertain their satisfaction, measured on a 5 point anchored scale, with important aspects of the service, including medical consultation, diagnostic services, blood and blood components or products and their delivery, and general satisfaction with the service. Of 122 clinicians in medical and surgical disciplines in five hospitals in Edinburgh, 72 (59%) replied. Fourteen (22%) indicated dissatisfaction with any aspect of the medical consultation service, owing to inadequate follow up of clinical contacts and unsatisfactory routing of incoming calls. Diagnostic services were criticised for the presentation, communication, and interpretation of results. The restricted availability of whole blood, the necessity to order platelets and plasma through the duty blood transfusion service doctor, and the use of a group and screen policy, attracted criticism from a small number of clinicians. Ten of 68 respondents expressed dissatisfaction with delivery of blood and components to the wards and theatres. The findings indicate that the clinicians served by this blood transfusion service are largely satisfied with the service. Changes are being implemented to improve reporting of laboratory results and measures taken to improve liaison with clinicians.  (+info)

Serum concentrations of organochlorine compounds and the subsequent development of breast cancer. (4/275)

A nested case-control study was conducted to examine the association between serum concentrations of 1,1-dichloro-2,2-bis(p-chlorophenyl)ethylene (DDE), the primary metabolite of 1,1,1-trichloro-2,2-bis(p-chlorophenyl)ethane (DDT), and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and the development of breast cancer up to 20 years later. Cases (n = 346) and controls (n = 346) were selected from cohorts of women who donated blood in 1974, 1989, or both, and were matched on age, race, menopausal status, and month and year of blood donation. Analyses were stratified by cohort participation because median DDE and PCB concentrations among the controls were 59 and 147% higher in 1974 than 1989, respectively. Median concentrations of DDE were lower among cases than controls in both time periods [11.7% lower in 1974 (P = 0.06) and 8.6% lower in 1989 (P = 0.41)]. Median concentrations of PCBs were similar among cases and controls [P = 0.21 for 1974 and P = 0.37 for 1989 (Wilcoxon signed rank test)]. The risk of developing breast cancer among women with the highest concentrations of DDE was roughly half that among women with the lowest concentrations, whether based on concentrations in 1974 [odds ratio (OR), 0.50; 95% confidence interval (CI), 0.27-0.89; P(trend) = 0.02] or in 1989 (OR, 0.53; 95% CI, 0.24-1.17; P(trend) = 0.08). The associations between circulating concentrations of PCBs and breast cancer were less pronounced but still in the same direction (1974: OR, 0.68; 95% CI, 0.36-12.9; P(trend) = 0.2; and 1989: OR, 0.73; 95% CI, 0.37-1.46; P(trend) = 0.6). Adjustment for family history of breast cancer, body mass index, age at menarche or first birth, and months of lactation did not materially alter these associations. These associations remained consistent regardless of lactation history and length of the follow-up interval, with the strongest inverse association observed among women diagnosed 16-20 years after blood drawing. Results from this prospective, community-based nested case-control study are reassuring. Even after 20 years of follow-up, exposure to relatively high concentrations of DDE or PCBs showed no evidence of contributing to an increased risk of breast cancer.  (+info)

Detection of specific antibodies to Plasmodium falciparum in blood bank donors from malaria-endemic and non-endemic areas of Venezuela. (5/275)

Malaria antibody detection is valuable in providing retrospective confirmation of an attack of malaria. Blood bank screening is another area were malaria serology is potentially useful. In the present study, we tested the presence of antibodies to Plasmodium falciparum in sera from blood bank donors of non-endemic and malaria-endemic areas of Venezuela. Sera from 1,000 blood donors were tested by an indirect immunofluorescent antibody (IFA) assay and an IgG-ELISA for the presence of malaria antibodies using a synchronized in vitro-cultured Venezuelan isolate of P. falciparum as the antigen source. A selected group of positive and negative sera (n = 100) was also tested by a dot-IgG-ELISA. Positive results (reciprocal titer > or = 40) were found in 0.8% and 3.8% of blood donors when tested by the IFA assay and in 0.8% and 2% (optical density > or = 0.2) when tested by the IgG-ELISA in Caracas (non-endemic area) and Bolivar City (endemic area), respectively. The presence of anti-malarial antibodies in some sera from non-endemic areas such as Caracas reflects the increased potential risk of post-transfusional malaria in those areas due to the mobility of the blood donors. The data obtained indicate the need to implement new blood donor policy in blood banks in developing areas. Our results also indicate that the IFA assay is the most reliable test to use in malaria serodiagnosis.  (+info)

Cord blood banking in London: the first 1000 collections. (6/275)

The London Cord Blood Bank was established with the aim of collecting, processing and storing 10000 unrelated stem cell donations for the significant number of children in the UK requiring transplantation, for whom a matched unrelated bone marrow donor cannot be found. Collection is performed at two hospitals by dedicated cord blood bank staff after delivery of the placenta. Mothers are interviewed regarding medical, ethnic and behavioural history by nurse counsellors and sign a detailed consent form. Donations are returned to the bank for processing. Volume reduction is undertaken by a simple, closed, semi-automated blood processing system, with excellent recovery of progenitor cells. Units are cryopreserved and stored in the vapour phase of liquid nitrogen. Blood samples from mothers and cord blood donations are tested for the UK mandatory red cell and microbiology markers for blood donors. Donations are typed for HLA-A, B and DR at medium resolution (antigen split) level using sequence-specific oligonucleotide probing and sequence-specific priming techniques. The selection of collection hospitals on the basis of ethnic mix has proven effective, with 41.5% of donations derived from non-European caucasoid donors. Bacterial contamination of collections has been dramatically reduced by implementation of improved umbilical cord decontamination protocols.  (+info)

HLA-A, -B and -DR antigen frequencies of the London Cord Blood Bank units differ from those found in established bone marrow donor registries. (7/275)

Patients requiring allogeneic stem cell transplantation who do not have an HLA-matched related donor can sometimes obtain an unrelated donor by searching volunteer registries. The majority of donors in the registries are Caucasoid, which results in a lower probability of a non-Caucasoid patient finding a suitable donor. Cord blood is increasingly used as a source of haematopoietic stem cells for allogeneic bone marrow reconstitution and so far the London Cord Blood Bank has banked almost 3000 cord blood units. An analysis of the first 1500 units banked showed that more than 30% of the London Cord Blood Bank units are derived from UK ethnic minorities compared with only 2% of individuals recruited locally for the British Bone Marrow Registry (BBMR). The HLA types found in these cord blood units reflect their ethnic diversity and include: HLA-A34, A36, A80, B75, B61, B53, B78, B81 and B82. The units stored by the London Cord Blood Bank show an HLA profile which differs considerably from that of locally typed adult volunteers for the BBMR panel and this should help to increase the chances of obtaining acceptably HLA-matched donors for patients from ethnic minorities.

A cord blood bank is a facility which stores umbilical cord blood for future use. Both private and public cord blood banks have developed in response to the potential for cord blood in treating diseases of the blood and immune systems. Public cord blood banks accept donations to be used for anyone in need, and as such function like public blood banks. Traditionally, public cord blood banking has been more widely accepted by the medical community. Private cord blood banks store cord blood solely for potential use by the donor or donors family. Private banks typically charge around $2,000 for the collection and around $200 a year for storage. The policy of the American Academy of Pediatrics states that "private storage of cord blood as biological insurance is unwise" unless there is a family member with a current or potential need to undergo a stem cell transplantation. The American Academy of Pediatrics also notes that the odds of using ones own cord blood is 1 in 200,000 while the Institute ...
A cord blood bank may be private (i.e. the blood is stored for and the costs paid by donor families) or public (i.e. stored and made available for use by unrelated donors). While public cord blood banking is widely supported, private cord banking is controversial in both the medical and parenting community. Although umbilical cord blood is well-recognized to be useful for treating hematopoietic and genetic disorders, some controversy surrounds the collection and storage of umbilical cord blood by private banks for the babys use. Only a small percentage of babies (estimated at between 1 in 1,000 to 1 in 200,000[8]) ever use the umbilical cord blood that is stored. The American Academy of Pediatrics 2007 Policy Statement on Cord Blood Banking stated: "Physicians should be aware of the unsubstantiated claims of private cord blood banks made to future parents that promise to insure infants or family members against serious illnesses in the future by use of the stem cells contained in cord blood." ...

Choosing a bank (specifically a private bank) for her daughters cord blood made perfect sense to Julie Lehrman, a mom based in Chicago. "We wanted the extra assurance that we were doing everything we could to keep Lexi healthy," Lehrman says. "I was older when Lexi was born, and theres a lot we didnt know about my moms health history, so we felt that we were making a smart decision." Fortunately, Lexi was born healthy, and neither she nor anyone else in the family has needed the cord blood since it was stored seven years ago. But Lehrman has no regrets; she still feels the family made a wise investment. "Lexi or her brother or even one of us could still need that blood in the future, so Im thankful that we have it."

Background:. - Cord blood is blood that is taken from the umbilical cord and placenta of healthy newborns after childbirth. The cord blood collected from a baby is called a cord blood unit. Cord blood units are stored frozen in public cord blood banks. About 10,000 cord blood transplants have been performed in children and adults for blood cancers and other diseases in the world. These transplants have helped save lives and improve treatments. However, not all available units of cord blood have been collected, stored, and licensed according to specific government requirements. These unlicensed units can still be used in transplant, but they can only be given as part of specific research studies. This study will evaluate the safety of giving these unlicensed units by recording any problems that may occur during and after giving the cord blood.. Objectives:. - To test the safety and effectiveness of unlicensed cord blood units in people who need stem cell transplants.. Eligibility:. - Individuals ...

Blood transfusions are used to treat patients with serious medical conditions that cannot be corrected by other means (1). Despite the availability of certain blood substitutes that make it possible to maintain the volume or the consistency of circulating blood (2, 3), the biological activity of cellular and plasma components makes these the most efficient treatment for a number of clinical conditions (4-6).. The mission of a nations blood services is to collect and prepare safe blood products in an efficient and timely manner and to appropriately transfuse them (7). Blood services include health facilities and centers that collect, process, store, and transfuse blood and blood components. Blood services may be run by the ministry of health, the social security system, the armed forces, the private sector, or nongovernmental organizations. For their part, transfusion services are part of health care facilities, usually hospitals.. The role of blood services includes educating, recruiting, ...
HUH has been collaborating with ZNBTS since 2008. During the startup of a new project in 2014 between HUH and NRCSCBTS, several strengths and weaknesses was revealed in the national services that were different from ZNBTS. The current project started in 2014 and was aiming to strengthen the blood transfusion services at KCH with funds from a private donation.. In 2016 a triangular collaboration between Norway, Zanzibar and Nepal was established, with an exchange of personnel between all three. This would create a unique opportunity for ZNBTS and NRCSCBTS to learn from each other a setting where many of the operational challenges are the same. With the link to a modern transfusion service at HUH, and the hospital setting at KCH, this is assumed to model future capacity strengthening projects in transfusion medicine.. Zanzibar National Blood Transfusion Services (ZNBTS) has a highly developed and well-functioning quality management system, and works hard to increase total volume of blood units ...

Cord Blood (CB) is either donated to public CB banks for use by any patient worldwide for whom it is a match, or stored in a private bank for potential autologous or family use. It is a unique cell product that has potential for treating life-threatening diseases. The majority of CB products used today are for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation and are accessed from public banks. CB is still evolving as a hematopoietic stem cell source, developing as a source for cellular immunotherapy products, such as natural killer, dendritic and T-cells, and fast emerging as a non-hematopoietic stem cell source in the field of regenerative medicine. This review explores the regulations, standards and accreditation schemes that are currently available nationally and internationally for public and private CB banking. Currently, most of private banking is under regulated as compared to public banking. Regulations and standards were initially developed to address the public arena. Early responses from the medical

I have now to consider the complaints referred to by the 1stRespondent. There is nothing to show that those matters werebrought to the notice of the 2nd Respondent, and it cannot beassumed that he acted on those matters. Further, the Petitionerwas not given an opportunity of submitting an explanation in regardto those matters. Quite apart from any explanation which thePetitioner might have given, certian comments are unavoidable.Allegations of fraud and misappropriation of Samurdhi funds wereundoubtedly serious - but if they rendered him unfit to serve asbook-keeper at the Central Blood Bank how could he have beenallowed to serve elsewhere? As for the refusal to accept the revisedduty list, the Petittioner averred in his counter-affidavit that theAccountant had accepted his position - and that may well be truebecause the Accountants letter dated 28.7.2001 made no com-plaint on that score.

In the 1990s, Komeito was the first political party in Japan to endorse and support a volunteer group striving to establish a public cord blood bank, a facility that preserves umbilical cord blood to treat blood- and immune system-related genetic diseases, cancers and blood disorders. The party, the predecessor to New Komeito, began by launching a nationwide petition drive, which was signed by more than 2 million Japanese. It then called national attention to the facilitys need and efficacy by raising the issue in the Diet. As a result, the health ministry agreed to cover cord blood transplantations under the national health insurance program, dramatically reducing the cost burden to patients. A year later, a nationwide cord blood bank network was established; by 2008, according to the Japanese Cord Blood Bank Network, 4,850 patients underwent transplants. ...
A blood bank technologist specialist screens and collects blood for patients who may need blood for surgery or medical emergencies such as blood transfusions. These skilled health professionals check blood donors for unsure medical conditions such as hepatitis A, hepatitis C, and HIV. Additionally, they label and store blood properly. A baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited college/university along with certification from the Board of Registry is adequate for employment. Most blood specialist work in trauma centers, hosptials, and blood banks for salaries ranging from $50,000 to $100,000 with advanced training. Blood bank automation has been implemented at some facilities because of workforce shortages.

The NHS Blood and Transplant Authority, the Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service and the Wellcome Trust have jointly announced a pioneering project to create a potentially unlimited supply of blood for transfusions using embryonic stem cells (ES cells) derived from surplus IVF embryos which are donated for research. The synthetic blood could eventually mean that clinical services would no long need to rely on obtaining a fresh supply of blood from donors since, in theory, a single embryo could supply the nations needs.. The multi-million pound project will focus on identifying ES cells that produce the o-negative blood group. Although present in just seven per cent of the population, this blood group is in high demand because it can be transfused into anyone, regardless of their blood-type.. The project will be led by Professor Marc Turner, scientific director of the Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service. Professor Turner told the BBC: We should have proof of principle in the ...

With health care spending putting enormous pressure on provincial and territorial budgets, governments need to seek integrated, cost-shared solutions for delivery of services to ensure sustainability and better patient outcomes. One such innovative model already exists and was, in fact, created 14 years ago.. Canadian Blood Services came to be in 1998 in response to the inquiry led by Justice Horace Krever into the tainted blood tragedy - the largest public health catastrophe in the countrys history. In the wake of the Krever Commission, Canadian Blood Services was given the mandate for a national blood supply system that assures access to a safe, secure and affordable supply of blood and blood products. As a result, the organization is the only publicly funded provider of a vitally necessary health care service operating on a pan-Canadian basis within 12 provincial and territorial jurisdictions (all except Quebec).. Governments have recognized Canadian Blood Services can do more to contribute ...
There are many reasons why a person may not be eligible to donate on the day they attend a donation clinic. The IBTS constantly reviews these deferral criteria and makes changes as appropriate. In the case of men who have sex with men (MSM) a lifelong deferral has been in place since the emergence of HIV in the 1980s. In light of changes to this deferral criterion in other countries the IBTS decided to review its lifetime deferral. The IBTS held a conference on 21 & 22 April 2016 at which data were presented from countries that had changed their deferral criteria for MSM. The data showed that there had not been an increase in the number of HIV positive blood donations, since the change in the deferral policy. It was concluded that international experience had shown that a one year deferral is as effective as a lifetime deferral from the point of view of protecting the blood supply against the risk of HIV transmission. ...
Québec City, June 16, 2008 - It is with much joy that the Centre hospitalier universitaire de Québec (CHUQ) and Héma-Québec announce that it is now possible for future mothers who give birth at the CHUQs Centre mère-enfant in Québec City to register with the Public Cord Blood Bank. This participation will also soon be available to clients giving birth at the Saint-François-dAssise Hospital (CHUQ). Previously considered organic waste, the blood contained in the umbilical cord can now be used as a significant source of stem cells. Cord blood transplants can help counter malfunctioning bone marrow stem cells responsible for the production of red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.. The cord blood is collected from the umbilical cord once it has been cut, after the birth of the child. If this cord blood is not collected, it is discarded as biomedical waste, as is the placenta, following evaluation on a case-by-case basis ...

Cord blood banks use a variety of processing and storage techniques, with each option offering advantages and disadvantages.. When UCB is received at a processing facility, the unit and accompanying paperwork are inspected and reviewed. The product is then reduced of the red cell and/or plasma components in preparation for cryopreservation (freezing). Procedures and methods for this part of the process vary. It is very important for facilities to validate the procedures used. Validation provides data to demonstrate the procedure works consistently and effectively at each facility.. Generally, there are three processing methods utilized in the field. Some programs use a density gradient solution to separate the different cell layers based on the principle of gravity. Though this method results in overall cell loss, it results in a more pure population of the layer that includes the stem cells - the mononuclear cell population of the white blood cells - and contains only a few red blood cells. ...
Hence, the practice now is to get your blood from the blood banks of the hospital where you are presently confined in. No more buying of blood. Local hospital blood banks have reserved stocks of every blood type, and in cases of emergency, you get your blood there. But the same problem arises when there is great demand for a certain blood type. Shortages occur. Patient relatives are therefore asked to replace the number of blood units provided by the blood bank. You pay for the facilities used in extracting blood from your coterie of recruited donors ...
Even though the applications of umbilical cord blood and cord tissue stem cells are increasing, it is unlikely that a relative who does not suffer from these diseases would need the stem cells obtained from the original donor. There are no guarantees that these stem cells may be compatible or that it may produce a cure.. The stem cells from umbilical cord blood and cord tissue do not guarantee successful treatments for all genetic diseases. As in any other transplant therapy, the efficacy of the therapy depends not only on the stem cells themselves but on many other factors such as the compatibility between the recipient and the donor.. ...

While a Treg may not be able to do all the things that a cord blood stem cell can do, it does offer distinct opportunities in regenerative medicine.
Utilizing the principle of low-glycerol rapid freeze-thaw technique of red cell preservation, a frozen blood bank has been established in the Edinburgh Blood Transfusion Service. A new aluminium container for freezing was developed that enabled maximum packing in a limited space. Deglycerolization is accomplished by serial centrifugal batch washing either manually or automatically in the IBM 2991 Cell Processor. A comparative study between both methods showed several advantages of the latter technique. The post-thaw stability of frozen deglycerolized blood as measured by supernatant haemoglobin (Hb) and potassium (K+) is markedly improved when the washed erythrocytes are reconstituted in an equal volume of a medium made up from isotonic saline and 70 ml of acid-citrate-dextrose (ACD) solution. The rate of release of Hb was reduced four fold and that of KK two fold when compared to resuspension in isotonic saline alone. This effect of ACD was attributed to the combined action of both low pH and ...

Now that we know what stem cells, we must know its importance. It is those two characteristics: the ability to multiply and the capacity to develop into other types of cells, that, under certain physiologic or experimental conditions, propel stem cells to the forefront of todays scientific community. Every day, cutting edge stem cell research furthers scientific understanding about how healthy cells develop and replace damaged cells.. In practice, this means that there is enormous potential for finding effective medical treatments and/or cures for a wide array of diseases.. Stem cells can be obtained from a number of sources, including embryos, afterbirth placenta, adult tissue, umbilical cord blood, adipose tissue and dental pulp.. We have seen What are Stem Cells and their importance, now we know the Types of Stem Cells. Stem cells are classified by their ability to differentiate into different cell types:. ...
The first place patients look for a match is within their own families, but unfortunately, 75 percent of them don?t find a match among their relatives and therefore must rely on unrelated donors. Canada?s current bank doesn?t proportionally represent the ethnic groups unique to the country, such as the First Nation, Inuit and Metis peoples. Because Canada?s population is vastly diverse, a more ethnically varied blood bank would be able to help more people, including mixed-race patients. ?There are 28 million adults around the world signed up for bone marrow registry. And there?s about 700,000 publicly banked cord blood units around the world. But even with these high numbers, we can?t find matches for half of our Canadian patients,? says Elmoazzen. ?That?s why building a bank that?s reflective of the unique diversity we have in Canada is so important ...

Most respondents (307/438 or 70% [95% CI 66% to 74%]) rated their knowledge about cord blood banking as poor or very poor. Many (299/441 or 68% [95% CI 63% to 72%]) thought that physicians should talk to pregnant women about the collection of cord blood, and they wanted to receive information about this topic directly from a health care professional (290/441 or 66% [95% CI 61% to 70%]) or in a prenatal class (308/441 or 70% [95% CI 65% to 74%]).. About a quarter of the respondents (109/435 or 25% [95% CI 19% to 31%]) overestimated the risk of a child needing a bone marrow transplant before his or her 10th birthday; this risk is currently reported at between 1 in 200 000 and 1 in 10 000.21. Most respondents thought a woman should be asked about cord blood banking before 30 weeks of pregnancy (365/439 or 83% [95% CI 79% to 87%]). About two-thirds indicated that a pregnant womans partner should have a choice about the collection of samples (293/439 or 67% [95% CI 62% to 71%]) and about the choice ...

BACKGROUND: Because there are lower incidence of graft versus host disease in HLA mismatched cord blood transplantation compared to bone marrow transplantation, development of smaller scale cord blood bank could be possible. So we analysed the content of hematopoietic stem cell in cord blood and the distribution of HLA as a basic study for cord blood bank. METHODS: Seventy eight cord bloods were collected in heparinized bottle immediately after caesarian section. After expulsion of placenta, additional cord blood and placental blood were collected with heparinized syringe. Fifteen mL was sent to the laboratory for analysis and the rest was cryopreserved. RESULTS: The mean collected cord blood volume was 96.8mL (range, 55~163mL). And mean 81.8mL (range, 40~148mL) was cryopreserved. It contained mean 7.4x108 (range, 2.8x108~12.2x108) nucleated cells. In 2x105 mononuclear cells, 85 +/- 48 BFU-E, 19 +/- 17 CFU-E, 107 +/- 73 CFU-GM and 124 +/- 113 CFU-GEMM were present. With dextran/albumin thawing ...

In the United States, yellow fever (YF) vaccination is recommended for travelers and active duty military members visiting endemic areas of sub-Saharan Africa and Central/South America (1,2). The American Red Cross recommends that recipients of YF vaccine defer blood product donation for 2 weeks because of the theoretical risk for transmission from a viremic donor (3). On April 10, 2009, a hospital blood bank supervisor learned that, on March 27, blood products had been collected from 89 U.S. active duty trainees who had received YF vaccine 4 days before donation. This report summarizes the subsequent investigation by the hospital and CDC to identify lapses in donor deferral and to determine whether transfusion-related transmission of YF vaccine virus occurred. The investigation found that a recent change in the timing of trainee vaccination had occurred and that vaccinees had not reported recent YF vaccination status at time of donation. Despite a prompt recall, six units of blood products were ...

Despite the implementation of safety advances, the risk remains for known and unknown potential infectious agents and pathogens to threaten the blood supply and blood products. In recent years, these threats have included West Nile virus; Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease and its variant, mad cow disease; and parvovirus B19. In each instance, NHF has worked with the FDA, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, manufacturers and the medical and consumer communities to assess risk and communicate information. Further, NHF is well positioned to influence public policy decisions in Congress and by active participation on key federal committees. The hemophilia community is now represented on the Health and Human Services Advisory Committee on Blood Safety and Availability and the FDAs Blood Products Advisory Committee and Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies Advisory Committee.. Throughout its work on blood safety, NHFs stance has never wavered. Today NHFs commitment to blood product safety ...
Background: Leukoreduction of cellular blood components is a standard practice in the Blood Bank to prevent cytomegalovirus transmission. This process is of utmost importance in our pediatric hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) patients who are immunocompromized and thus are susceptible to this infection. The objective of this study is to show that bedside leukoreduction of cellular blood products is a safe alternative to blood components from a very limited pool of CMV seronegative donors in pediatric HSCT recipients.. Methods: We conducted a retrospective analysis of our pediatric HSCT performed between 02/23/96 and 03/11/05. Screening for CMV antibody in our donors was discontinued in 02/23/96. Instead, we switched to bedside leukoreduction for patients who need CMV negative blood products, including the pediatric HSCT recipients. Transplant recipients and donors were tested for CMV antibody prior to transplant date. Patients and donors who were CMV seronegative pairs were included in ...
