GLP-1(1-37 or 1-36) is further N-terminally truncated resulting in GLP-1(7-37) or GLP-1-(7-36) which can be amidated. These GLP-1 peptides are known to enhance glucose-dependent INSULIN release, suppress GLUCAGON release and gastric emptying, lower BLOOD GLUCOSE, and reduce food intake.Glucagon-Secreting Cells: A type of pancreatic cell representing about 5-20% of the islet cells. Alpha cells secrete GLUCAGON.Glucagon: A 29-amino acid pancreatic peptide derived from proglucagon which is also the precursor of intestinal GLUCAGON-LIKE PEPTIDES. Glucagon is secreted by PANCREATIC ALPHA CELLS and plays an important role in regulation of BLOOD GLUCOSE concentration, ketone metabolism, and several other biochemical and physiological processes. (From Gilman et al., Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 9th ed, p1511)Receptors, Glucagon: Cell surface receptors that bind glucagon with high affinity and trigger intracellular changes which influence the behavior of cells. Activation of glucagon receptors causes a variety of effects; the best understood is the initiation of a complex enzymatic cascade in the liver which ultimately increases the availability of glucose to body organs.Insulin: A 51-amino acid pancreatic hormone that plays a major role in the regulation of glucose metabolism, directly by suppressing endogenous glucose production (GLYCOGENOLYSIS; GLUCONEOGENESIS) and indirectly by suppressing GLUCAGON secretion and LIPOLYSIS. Native insulin is a globular protein comprised of a zinc-coordinated hexamer. Each insulin monomer containing two chains, A (21 residues) and B (30 residues), linked by two disulfide bonds.

Transcription of Alu DNA elements in blood cells of sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (sCJD). (1/25)

Alu DNA elements were long considered to be of no biological significance and thus have been only poorly defined. However, in the past Alu DNA elements with well-defined nucleotide sequences have been suspected to contribute to disease, but the role of Alu DNA element transcripts has rarely been investigated. For the first time, we determined in a real-time approach Alu DNA element transcription in buffy coat cells isolated from the blood of humans suffering from sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (sCJD) and other neurodegenerative disorders. The reverse transcribed Alu transcripts were amplified and their cDNA sequences were aligned to genomic regions best fitted to database genomic Alu DNA element sequences deposited in the UCSC and NCBI data bases. Our cloned Alu RNA/cDNA sequences were widely distributed in the human genome and preferably belonged to the "young" Alu Y family. We also observed that some RNA/cDNA clones could be aligned to several chromosomes because of the same degree of identity and score to resident genomic Alu DNA elements. These elements, called paralogues, have purportedly been recently generated by retrotransposition. Along with cases of sCJD we also included cases of dementia and Alzheimer disease (AD). Each group revealed a divergent pattern of transcribed Alu elements. Chromosome 2 was the most preferred site in sCJD cases, besides chromosome 17; in AD cases chromosome 11 was overrepresented whereas chromosomes 2, 3 and 17 were preferred active Alu loci in controls. Chromosomes 2, 12 and 17 gave rise to Alu transcripts in dementia cases. The detection of putative Alu paralogues widely differed depending on the disease. A detailed data search revealed that some cloned Alu transcripts originated from RNA polymerase III transcription since the genomic sites of their Alu elements were found between genes. Other Alu DNA elements could be located close to or within coding regions of genes. In general, our observations suggest that identification and genomic localization of active Alu DNA elements could be further developed as a surrogate marker for differential gene expression in disease. A sufficient number of cases are necessary for statistical significance before Alu DNA elements can be considered useful to differentiate neurodegenerative diseases from controls.  (+info)

Currently some pathogen-reduced platelet products (PR-PCs) have passed phase III studies, are in progress or can be expected in the near future. At present some transfusion centers throughout Europe have implemented PR-PCs, but as yet PR-PCs are not formally accepted as a standard product that should be applied nation-wide. Because many uncertainties currently exist on the optimal platelet product, it is in the interest of patients, health care providers and the transfusion provider (Sanquin) to decide on evidence.. With all the current safety measures remaining in place, pathogen reduction provides a safety benefit by reducing the number of transfusions of platelet concentrates contaminated with bacteria, but which were missed by the screening method. In the Dutch situation, morbidity is estimated to be 1:14,000 platelet concentrates [Te Boekhorst, Transfusion 2005].

Why do we perform research activities in a blood bank? Our primary mission is to deliver efficient and safe blood products to our patients. This simple mission has not changed for decades but its interpretation is highly dependent upon the medical and scientific context and the technologies available. Transfusion medicine has been completely reshaped, from the use of glass bottles to store blood products, and limited screening technologies till the seventies, followed by the introduction in the eighties of plastic bags that guarantee complete sterility from the donor to the patient, the generalisation of serologic screening and the introduction of nucleic acid testing , that allowed to reduce the risk of pathogen transmission through the transfusion chain to unprecedently low levels, and by the use of additive solutions to improve the storage of red blood cells and platelets. Recently, we have introduced universal pathogen reduction technologies for platelets, and will soon introduce it for ...

Dr. Snyder also has a long-term history of investigating the role of leukodepletion in blood components. Most recently, the laboratory has turned to the evaluation of new pathogen reduction technology. This includes the addition of various compounds to blood to remove known and potentially dangerous, as well as unknown, viral, bacterial, and protozoal contaminants in donated blood. The laboratory has a special expertise in radiolabeling human blood cells. The laboratory is currently ...
Platelets are either isolated from collected units of whole blood and pooled to make a therapeutic dose, or collected by platelet apheresis: blood is taken from the donor, passed through a device which removes the platelets, and the remainder is returned to the donor in a closed loop. The industry standard is for platelets to be tested for bacteria before transfusion to avoid septic reactions, which can be fatal. Recently the AABB Industry Standards for Blood Banks and Transfusion Services (5.1.5.1) has allowed for use of pathogen reduction technology as an alternative to bacterial screenings in platelets.[61]. Pooled whole-blood platelets, sometimes called "random" platelets, are separated by one of two methods.[62] In the US, a unit of whole blood is placed into a large centrifuge in what is referred to as a "soft spin." At these settings, the platelets remain suspended in the plasma. The platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is removed from the red cells, then centrifuged at a faster setting to harvest ...
Blood centers are faced with many challenges including maximizing production yield from the blood product donations they receive as well as ensuring the highest possible level of safety for transfusion patients, including protection from transfusion transmitted diseases. This must be accomplished in a fiscally responsible manner which minimizes operating expenses including consumables, equipment, waste, and personnel costs, among others.. Several methods are available to produce platelet concentrates for transfusion. One of the most common is the buffy coat method in which a single therapeutic platelet unit (,= 2.0 x10(11) platelets per unit or per local regulations) is prepared by pooling the buffy coat layer from up to six whole blood donations. A procedure for producing "double dose" whole blood derived platelets has only recently been developed.. Presented here is a novel method for preparing double dose whole blood derived platelet concentrates from pools of 7 buffy coats and subsequently ...

Tourcoing - October 29, 2014 - Macopharma is pleased to inform you that a current article from the Blood Centre of Galicia, Santiago de Compostela, Spain, entitled "In Vitro evaluation of platelet concentrates suspended in additive solution, and treated for pathogen REDUCTION: Effects of clumping formation." has been recently published in the journal "Blood Transfusion".. The aim of this study was to analyse the relationship between the occurrence of clumping and their effect on in vitro quality of platelet concentrates suspended in additive solution.. No significant difference was found throughout storage between the groups. The LDH levels increased in both groups, but this increase was higher in the test group at the last day of testing, without significant difference on day 2. In contrast, pH values on day 2 were significantly different between test and control group. Platelet derived cytokines increased comparably during storage.. The authors ...
Human fibroblasts, and specifically embryonic or neonatal fibroblasts, have represented the conventional cell substrate for recovery of HCMV from clinical samples since the beginning of medical virology. Due to the increasing need for recovery of HCMV from the blood of immunocompromised patients, we investigated whether use of HCMV-free HUVEC could increase the recovery rate of HCMV from blood (buffy coat) samples in comparison to HELF. Clinical samples other than blood were inoculated in parallel onto the two cell substrates as controls. Surprisingly, while the isolation rate from blood samples did not increase on HUVEC compared to HELF, no or very little virus could be recovered on primary isolation on HUVEC from clinical samples other than blood, even when virus was present in exceedingly large amounts. Thus, HELF were confirmed as the cell substrate of choice for isolation of HCMV from the broadest series of clinical samples, whereas HCMV recovery on HUVEC was substantially restricted to ...

BACKGROUND A designer typically has to make several compromises in the selection of materials. The preferred material may not be useable due to a lack of essential surface properties for the application. In the case of products made of plastics, the balancing of bulk to surface property requirements has always been the Achilles heel of optimum design. For example, the use of polypropylene, a low cost resin, may be the preferred material for a specific packaging application. Preferred because of its processability, weight, strength and cost, but unusable by itself because of its gas permeation properties.. The methods available to the processor for modifying surface properties have been limited to flame or corona treatment or wet chemical techniques. Flame and corona treatments, though useful in oxidizing the surfaces of plastics, have limited utility in many applications and the transitory nature of these modifications prevent their widespread use in many situations. Unlike plasma discharges ...

Contemporary healthcare facilities are filled with technology systems increasingly sophisticated and complex. Properly planned and managed, these systems offer enormous benefit to patients, clinicians and support staff. Unfortunately, these systems are often disparate and unable to share data between systems, resulting in inefficiencies, lost opportunities and cost over-runs. As patient satisfaction, clinician need, compliance issues and regulatory demands are driving the unique application of technology to Healthcare, institutions increasingly prefer a comprehensive approach, unifying infrastructure, middleware and disparate systems into a common topology. Strategically-planned Healthcare Technology Systems improve patient outcomes and reduce costs by integrating clinical devices to the Electronic Health Record (EHR), managing assets, reducing errors, managing alerts, improving communications, tracking patient / clinician location, improving clinician efficiency, speeding bed-ready systems, and ...

Noble feed gases such as Argon are used since they tend to initiate cleavage without grafting to the surface. Treatment times are typically short so as to reduce further unwanted chemistry.. Excessive treatment results in attack of the base polymer which ultimately ashes the entire polymeric part resulting in its destruction. A typical cleaning procedure for polyethylene would be to treat with Argon at a pressure of 0.01 to 0.4 Torr, with a power density of 0.5 W/cm2 at 13.56 MHz rf on parallel-plate electrodes. Once contaminants are removed, a more stable polymer surface is exposed to the plasma environment so as to facilitate further reaction such as etching, grafting or direct application of the desired surface coating. More aggressive processing can be achieved by using reactive gases or by use of electrical biasing to increase the energetics of the bombarding ions. However, etching into the base polymer begins to occur, which leads us logically to the next topic.. ETCHING. To obtain ...

In recent years antiretroviral availability and access has become more prevalent in resource poor settings, whilst the availability of access to HIV-1 drug resistance testing remains limited and patients are often started on therapy or switched when failing without a resistance test. Proviral DNA has been proposed as a source of archived resistance mutations. We investigated the feasibility of using proviral DNA to detect previously documented plasma resistance mutations.. Amplification and sequencing of pol from proviral DNA derived from buffy coat (BCL), buffy coat dried on filter paper (BCS) or dried blood spots (DBS) was performed using an in-house assay.. Only 2/20 samples were amplified from long term stored buffy coat (,1 year) compared to at least one prospective sample from 10/20 patients. Six patients had a plasma viral load (PVL) ,40 cp/ml at time of sampling, though 4/6 only become undetectable on the most recent sample, 2/4 had been undetectable for 149 and 819 days respectively. ...
The draft genome of "Enterobacter lignolyticus" SCF1 was generated at the DOE Joint Genome Institute (JGI) using a combination of Illumina [31] and 454 technologies [32]. For this genome we constructed and sequenced an Illumina GAii shotgun library which generated 50,578,565 reads totaling 3,844 Mb, a 454 Titanium standard library which generated 643,713 reads and two paired end 454 libraries with average insert sizes of 12517 +/- 3129 bp kb and 10286 +/- 2571 bp which generated 346,353 reads totaling 339.3 Mb of 454 data. All general aspects of library construction and sequencing performed at the JGI can be found at the JGI website [33]. The initial draft assembly contained 28 contigs in 1 scaffold. The 454 Titanium standard data and the 454 paired end data were assembled together with Newbler, version 2.3. The Newbler consensus sequences were computationally shredded into 2 kb overlapping fake reads (shreds). Illumina sequencing data was assembled with VELVET, version 0.7.63 [34], and the ...
Finally, and importantly, we will be changing the way we are storing Illumina sequencing data long term. In the past, we have saved the fastq, sam and bam files, along with the quality control data, in a zipped file. These zipped files now occupy over 50TB of storage which is limiting how we are able to handle new sequencing runs. To address this, we will be deleting the fastq and sam files from the archive and storing only the binary bam and quality control files. The fastq and sam files can be regenerated rapidly from the bam files using Picard and SamTools (though reads may not be in the same order). As always, we strongly encourage you to keep your own copy of the Illumina data and use our version only as a backup. We will begin this conversion next week. If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. ...

In the past decade there has been sustained international interest in measuring quality of care. In the United Kingdom, quality indicators with financial incentives to reward good care were introduced as a result of increasing awareness of variable quality in primary care, the technical feasibility of introducing evidence based indicators within information technology systems, and a resolve by political negotiators to use improved quality to secure additional investment in primary care.1 Similar but less comprehensive initiatives have been introduced in the United States, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. However, as this series has shown, the use of quality measures has also created controversy. Our view is that using incentives to improve quality of care has been beneficial. We look at what needs to be done to ensure those benefits remain in the future. ...

Most red blood cells (RBCs) are stored from 1-6 °C in an additive solution of saline, adenine, glucose, and mannitol for up to 42 days. Cryopreservation of RBCs at -80 ºC in 40% glycerol can prolong their shelf life to at least ten years; however, the process to remove glycerol prior to transfusion is time-consuming and precludes the use of cryopreserved RBCs in emergency situations. The proposed research aims to develop non-toxic carbohydrate derivatives to improve the quality of hypothermically-stored RBCs and facilitate the use of cryopreserved RBCs.. ...
The type I interferons (IFN) are a family of cytokines with pleiothropic activities that include inhibition of viral replication, cell proliferation and activation of the immune system. These properties give the IFNs important physiological and pathological roles in infection and cancer and have led to their therapeutic use for many clinical conditions. In humans, the type I IFNs consist of 12 different IFNa subtypes as well as single IFNb, w and k subtypes. They all compete for binding to a common receptor, consisting of two subunits, IFNAR1 and IFNAR2. In almost all cell types proliferation is inhibited by IFNs as a consequence of the antiviral properties. However, previous studies on human peripheral B-lymphocytes have shown increased survival as well as proliferation upon IFN treatment. We established a purification system for extraction of B-lymphocytes from buffy-coat, utilizing density centrifugation in combination with anti-CD19 magnetic beads.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Red blood cell storage lesion. AU - Kor, Daryl J. AU - Van Buskirk, Camille M.. AU - Gajic, Ognjen. PY - 2009. Y1 - 2009. N2 - The past two decades have witnessed increased scrutiny regarding efficacy and risk of the once unquestioned therapy of red blood cell RBC transfusion. Simultaneously, a variety of changes have been identified within the RBC and storage media during RBC preservation that are correlated with reduced tissue oxygenation and transfusion-associated adverse effects. These alterations are collectively termed the storage lesion and include extensive biochemical, biomechanical, and immunologic changes involving cells of diverse origin. Time-dependent falls is 2,3-diphosphoglycerate, intracellular RBC adenosine triphosphate, and nitric oxide have been shown to impact RBC deformability and delivery of oxygen to the end-organ.

Maturation (MP) or polishing ponds are widely used throughout the world as a final or tertiary wastewater treatment process for effluent quality improvement from secondary biological treatment systems, including FPs. MPs can be expected to reduce total suspended solids (TSS), ammonia, nitrate and phosphorus levels in effluent, but the primary function of MPs in most parts of the world is the removal of pathogenic organisms. A number of mechanisms in MPs are responsible for pathogen reduction, including settlement, natural die off (a function of time and temperature), elevated pH, UV radiation and predation. The design, size and number (usually in series) of MPs are typically based on the desired bacteriological quality of the final effluent. MPs are typically designed at the same depth as facultative ponds (2 to 5 feet (0.7 to 1.5 m)). Retention times in MPs are typically designed at 10 to 14 days for pathogen reduction; however, shorter retention times are required for TSS removal (four to five ...
0027] In an embodiment of the invention, the first and second spray nozzles 34a, 34b are triggered intermittently by an optical or other sensor or output (not shown) that provides a signal indicating the position of the blade 33. In another embodiment, an encoder signal from the slicer is used to establish position of the blade, and thus is used to set the window and timing of the shot. Thus, for example, when the blade 33 is in a first position A so as to expose the face 36 of the log 1, the first spray nozzle 34a is activated for a predetermined burst period. As each slice falls away from the log 1 (e.g., when the blade 33 is in a second position B obscuring the face 36 of the log 1, the second spray nozzle 34b is activated for a second predetermined burst period. When the second burst is applied, the removed slice may be either on the stack in progress or in transit to the stack. Except for the first and last slices in the stack, when each slice contacts the stack in progress, the ...

Next, the link between histone tail modifications and DNA methylation was examined. Publically available PBMC ChIP-Seq data from the ENCODE project were used to identify regions enriched for four distinct histone H3 modifications. Since the methylome of non-pregnant ccf DNA closely resembled that of buffy coat (PBMC), the level of CpG methylation in non-pregnant ccf DNA was then examined within these regions (Figure 1b). In regions enriched for H3K4me3, 89.9% of cytosines showed less than 20% methylation while only 5.2% of unenriched sites were similarly unmethylated. Conversely, 84.9% of CpG sites were methylated (,75%) in H3K9me3 enriched regions compared to 76.3% in unenriched regions. Distinct differences were also observed when comparing H3K4me1 and H3K27me3 enriched regions to corresponding unenriched CpG sites. Taken together, these data suggest a link between particular histone marks and CpG methylation in buffy coat. Comparison of the methylomes of buffy coat and non-pregnant ccf DNA ...
Substitution of a single Ga-atom or single Ge-atom (GaAl.sub.12 and GeAl.sub.12 respectively) into the center of an aluminum Keggin polycation (Al.sub.13) produces an optimal water-treatment product for neutralization and coagulation of anionic contaminants in water. GaAl.sub.12 consistently shows .about.1 order of magnitude increase in pathogen reduction, compared to Al.sub.13. At a concentration of 2 ppm, GaAl.sub.12 performs equivalently to 40 ppm alum, removing .about.90% of the dissolved organic material. The substituted GaAl.sub.12 product also offers extended shelf-life and consistent performance. We also synthesized a related polyaluminum chloride compound made of pre-hydrolyzed dissolved alumina clusters of [GaO.sub.4Al.sub.12(OH).sub.24(H.sub.2O).sub.12].sup.7+ ...

The goal of the FDAs guidelines is to help people reduce how much sodium they consume daily. Currently, American adults consume an average of 3,400 mg of sodium per day - almost 50 percent more than is recommended by the FDA and the American Heart Association. Most of that- as much as 65 percent - comes from food purchased in grocery and convenient stores, and 25 percent comes from eating out at restaurants, according to the AHA. The FDA would like to see adults reduce that amount to no more than 2,300 mg of sodium per day, or roughly one teaspoon of salt.. Most children and adolescents also take in more sodium than is recommended. Current data shows that children ages 6 to 10 consume approximately 2,900 mg per day, while teens consume up to 3,700 mg per day. The FDAs guidelines are generously providing companies with specific goals for defining and measuring progress. The companies also have time to learn and utilize new science on sodium reduction technologies. Within two years, the FDA ...
Within the last six-eight years many papers have reported an association between increased levels of particulate (aerodynamic size less than 10 microns in diameter) air pollution and increased daily death rates and illness in major cities in the US, Europe, and South America. There is a need to better characterize the emission rates and chemical composition of particles emitted from vehicles equipped with the latest emission reduction technology. Particle-mass emission rates were measured for four 1995 Ford vehicles driven over three different driving cycles: the Urban Dynamometer Driving Schedule (UDDS), the Highway Fuel Economy Test (HFET), and the USO6 driving cycle. The average particle-mass emission rates were less than 10 mg/mi for any of the driving cycles. The particle-mass emission rate was least for the HFET and about equal for the UDDS and the USO6 cycles. The elemental composition of the particles, determined by X-ray fluorescence, suggests that 10-30% of the particle-mass is ...
WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) today released Sodium and Salt: A Guide for Consumers, Policymakers and the Media, a science policy paper that provides policymakers, consumers, journalists and health professionals with current and scientifically accurate information and resources on sodium and salt..

"Companies are achieving lower sodium in products through extensive research, reformulation, new salt reduction technology and new product development. Thanks to these industry efforts, today there are more and more sodium- or salt-modified products available nationwide for consumers in the marketplace.". "We hope this paper can be a useful resource for policy makers, including the Institute of Medicines committee on Strategies to Reduce ...
After 6 weeks of refrigerated storage, transfusion of autologous red cells to healthy human volunteers increased extravascular hemolysis, saturated serum transferrin, and produced circulating nontransferrin-bound iron. These outcomes, associated with increased risks of harm, provide evidence that the maximal allowable red cell storage duration should be reduced to the minimum sustainable by the blood supply, with 35 days as an attainable goal.. ...

Sanitation and process control costs increased the costs of producing meat and poultry by about 0.5 percent in the period preceding the promulgation of the Pathogen Reduction/Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (PR/HACCP) rule of 1996. However, there was no benefit in trying to avoid these costs. Large slaughter plants and all further-processing plants with poor performance of sanitation and food safety process controls were more likely to exit their industries than other plants. Moreover, the fraction of costs required for sanitation and process control was about the same for large plants as for small plants, suggesting that larger plants were no better able than small plants to absorb sanitation and process control costs. Results also suggest that PR/HACCP raised wholesale meat and poultry prices by about 1 percent. Ollinger, Michael; Mueller, Valerie
Listeria monocytogenes contamination of cantaloupes has become a serious concern as contaminated cantaloupes led to a deadly outbreak in the United States in 2011. To reduce cross-contamination between cantaloupes and to reduce resident populations on contaminated melons, application of sanitizers in packing shed wash water is recommended. The sanitizing agent of 5% levulinic acid and 2% sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) applied as a single hurdle in either a simulated dump or dip treatment significantly reduced L. monocytogenes to lower levels at the stem scar compared to a simulated dump treatment employing 200 ppm chlorine; however pathogen reductions on the rind tissue were not significantly different. Double hurdle approaches employing two sequential packing plant treatments with different sanitizers revealed decreased reduction of L. monocytogenes at the stem scar. In contrast, application of sanitizers both in the field and at the packing plant led to greater L. monocytogenes population reductions

Abstract. Human granulocytic anaplasmosis (HGA) is a tick-borne infectious disease caused by Anaplasma phagocytophilum, an obligate intracellular bacterium. Until now, the utility of tick-bite site samples for HGA diagnosis has not been reported. Using a patient's buffy coat and tick-bite site crust samples, we performed polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing using Ehrlichia- or Anaplasma-specific primers. PCR with buffy coat and crust samples obtained before doxycycline administration was positive. Six days after doxycycline administration, PCR with the buffy coat sample was negative but PCR with a crust tissue sample from the tick-bite site remained positive. This is the first case to suggest that crust tissue at the tick-bite site may be useful for early HGA diagnosis in patients who have already been treated with antibiotics such as doxycycline.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of red blood cell storage time prior to transfusion on postoperative morbidity in pediatric cardiac operations. METHODS: One hundred ninety-two consecutive children aged five years or less who underwent cardiac operations using cardiopulmonary bypass and who received red blood cells for priming the cardiopulmonary bypass circuit comprised ...
Red marrow is present in the fetal skeleton and converts to yellow marrow after birth. In sickle cell anemia (SCA) destruction of RBCs causes anemia which prevents the conversion of red marrow to yellow marrow. The persistent red marrow is seen in all bones of patients with SCA and has pathologic and radiologic consequences. Red marrow stimulation leads to widening of the medullary spaces and cortical thinning which can cause pathologic fractures. Coarse trabeculation and osteopenia may also be seen. Persistent red marrow presents as low signal intensity in osseous structures on T1WI. On skull radiographs the widening of the diploic spaces is a manifestation of bone marrow expansion. The hair on end appearance of the skull is secondary to coarse trabeculation from new bone formation. In the spine, cortical thinning results in biconcave deformities of the vertebral bodies sometimes referred to as the fish-mouth appearance. ...
BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of red blood cell (RBC) transfusion on the hemorrheologic properties and microcirculatory hemodynamics in anemic hematology outpatients receiving 2 to 4 RBC units of either "fresh" (leukoreduced storage for less than 1 week) or "aged" (leukoreduced storage for 3-4 weeks) RBCs.. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS: Measurements were performed before and 30 minutes after RBC transfusion in hematology outpatients. Leukoreduced RBC suspensions were stored in saline-adenine-glucose-mannitol (SAGM) additive solution. Whole blood viscosity was measured using Couette low-shear viscometry, RBC deformability and aggregability were measured using laser-assisted optical rotational cell analysis, and microcirculatory density and perfusion were assessed using sidestream dark field imaging.. RESULTS: One group of patients (n = 10) received a median (interquartile range) of 3 (2-3) RBC bags that were stored for 7 (5-7) days (fresh) and the other group of ...
