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.

Problems with consent: whose blood is being banked for whom?. Standard models of tissue donation assume that the process of informed consent must involve the person from whom the tissue is being taken (in living donation), or their representative (in some types of posthumous donation). Such an assumption is problematic in cord blood banking because it is not clear whether the mother or the child is the donor. As a practical matter, most collection occurs after consent from the mother either directly or on behalf of the child - but it is not clear, legally or ethically, that this is the most appropriate way of gaining consent. While consent has not yet been a subject of disagreement in this area, it is not hard to envision, in the modern era of the blended family, that there is potential for competing family claims should the therapeutic potential of cord blood materialise. And if situations arise where competing claims are made over stored cord blood, the nature of consent to storage and issues ...

Such was the situation in which Neil Reynolds and his team found themselves when they were project-managing the new £6m, 4,000-user, 650-million-data-item National Blood Service IT system, Pulse. Everyone - Computer Weekly included - seemed to be baying for their blood. That was because the prognosis for Pulse was not good. First, the project had to integrate and replace 12 existing - and different - systems from nine different suppliers, spread across 12 regions. Secondly, it had to face internal political battles as the regional authorities resisted centralisation. Thirdly, because it was the National Blood Service, it was literally a life-or-death system. And fourthly, it was the first public sector IT project to enjoy the Private Finance Initiative (PFI). Before work could start, there were delays. Not only did PFI mean that the 20-page business case had to be rewritten as 400 pages, but the contract took an age to award. Then the hard work started, says Reynolds. The strategy was one ...

Sir Richard Branson has launched a new company under his Virgin brand which will offer umbilical cord blood banking facilities to parents of newborn babies. Cord blood transfusions are already used for the treatment of blood related disorders but some believe that umbilical cord blood, which is rich in stem cells, may have some future potential to treat diseases such as Parkinsons and diabetes. The expectation behind private cord blood banking is that the individuals whose blood is stored might benefit in the future should stem cell treatments became available to treat such conditions.. Private companies offering umbilical cord blood banking facilities to parents already exist in the UK, but Virgins Health bank will develop a novel approach by splitting each collection and donating part of it for the treatment of others. Sir Richard said, we will take an individuals cord blood and we will divide it into two. Part of it will go into a national blood centre that anyone can get access to and ...
The South African National Blood Service, (SANBS), is a non-profit organisation that provides human blood for transfusion that operates in South Africa, with the exception of the Western Cape. The head office is in Weltevredenpark, Gauteng, near Johannesburg, but there are blood collection operations in eight of the nine provinces. Western Cape has a separate blood center, the Western Province Blood Transfusion Service. SANBS was founded in 2001 from a merger of seven blood centres, and was embroiled in controversy in 2004 over a policy of racial profiling for blood safety. SANBS collects blood from volunteer unpaid donors and processes that blood into components for transfusion. The donors are screened for health risks and tested for diseases on every donation. Not all parts of the donated blood are always used, such as with first time donors, to establish a history of negative test results in the donor before the blood is used in patients. The red blood cells from the first donation are ...
