Blood Grouping and Crossmatching: Testing erythrocytes to determine presence or absence of blood-group antigens, testing of serum to determine the presence or absence of antibodies to these antigens, and selecting biocompatible blood by crossmatching samples from the donor against samples from the recipient. Crossmatching is performed prior to transfusion.ABO Blood-Group System: The major human blood type system which depends on the presence or absence of two antigens A and B. Type O occurs when neither A nor B is present and AB when both are present. A and B are genetic factors that determine the presence of enzymes for the synthesis of certain glycoproteins mainly in the red cell membrane.Histocompatibility Testing: Identification of the major histocompatibility antigens of transplant DONORS and potential recipients, usually by serological tests.

The influence of a partially HLA-matched blood transfusion on the disease activity of rheumatoid arthritis. (1/176)

OBJECTIVE: Based on the immunosuppressive effects of blood transfusions in organ transplantation, we determined the effect of a blood transfusion on disease activity of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHOD: In this double-blind pilot study, 40 patients with active RA were randomly assigned to receive a HLA-DRB1-matched blood transfusion (n = 30) or placebo (n = 10). Disease activity was scored according to the American College of Rheumatology response criteria during 6 months of follow-up. RESULTS: After 1 month and 6 months, respectively, 6 and 16% of patients fulfilled the response criteria in the blood transfusion group compared to none and 30%, respectively, in the placebo group. Following correction for the increase in haemoglobin levels, a majority of the response parameters in the blood transfusion group showed significant improvement compared to the placebo group. CONCLUSION: A DRB1-matched blood transfusion shows improvement of symptoms in several RA patients. Additional studies are required to identify blood transfusion regimens that enhance the potential for therapeutic responses.  (+info)

Differential immune responses to alpha-gal epitopes on xenografts and allografts: implications for accommodation in xenotransplantation. (2/176)

Xenograft recipients produce large amounts of high-affinity anti-Gal IgG in response to Galalpha1-3Galbeta1- 4GlcNAc-R (alpha-gal) epitopes on the graft. In contrast, ABO-mismatched allograft recipients undergo "accommodation," a state of very weak immune response to ABO antigens. These differences in anti-carbohydrate immune response were studied in alpha1,3galactosyltransferase knock-out mice. Pig kidney membranes administered to these mice elicited extensive production of anti-Gal IgG, whereas allogeneic kidney membranes expressing alpha-gal epitopes elicited only a weak anti-Gal IgM response. Anti-Gal IgG response to xenograft membranes depended on helper T cell activation and was inhibited by anti-CD40L antibody. These T cells were activated by xenopeptides and not by alpha-gal epitopes. Moreover, allogeneic cell membranes manipulated to express xenoproteins also induced anti-Gal IgG response. Xenoglycoproteins with alpha-gal epitopes are processed by anti-Gal B cells. Xenopeptides presented by these cells activate a large repertoire of helper T cells required for the differentiation of anti-Gal B cells into cells secreting anti-Gal IgG. Alloglycoproteins with alpha- gal epitopes have very few immunogenic peptides and fail to activate helper T cells. Similarly, ineffective helper T-cell activation prevents a strong immune response to blood group antigens in ABO-mismatched allograft recipients, thus enabling the development of accommodation.  (+info)

Allogeneic bone marrow transplantation for children with acute leukemia: cytoreduction with fractionated total body irradiation, high-dose etoposide and cyclophosphamide. (3/176)

Marrow-ablative chemo-radiotherapy followed by hematopoietic stem cell rescue from an allogeneic source improves outcomes for children with high-risk acute leukemia. The first effective pre-transplant preparative regimens consisted of high-dose cyclophosphamide (CY) and total body irradiation (TBI). Subsequent attempts have been made to improve leukemia-free survival, by adding other chemotherapy agents to these agents. In previous clinical studies of total body irradiation, etoposide, cyclophosphamide (TBI-VP-16-Cy) in adult allogeneic bone marrow transplantation, there has been a high incidence of severe regimen-related toxicity. In this study, we investigated the safety and efficacy of this combination in 41 children who received TBI (12-14 Gy), VP-16 (30 mg/kg), and CY (60 mg/kg x 2) and then either matched sibling or alternative donor transplants for acute leukemia. There was only one case of fatal regimen-related toxicity. The estimated 3-year event-free survival for patients with early or intermediate stage disease was 68% (53-88%). The estimated event-free survival of patients with advanced disease was 17% (5-59%). TBI-VP16-CY is safe in pediatric transplantation, and it has good efficacy for transplant recipients with less advanced disease. Bone Marrow Transplantation (2000) 25, 489-494.  (+info)

Allogeneic peripheral blood hematopoietic stem cell transplantation: guidelines for red blood cell immuno-hematological assessment and transfusion practice.Societe Francaise de Greffe de Moelle. (4/176)

Allogeneic peripheral blood hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (PBSCT) is presently being evaluated in a French randomized study comparing peripheral blood vs bone marrow. Cases of potentially lethal acute hemolysis have recently been reported after allogeneic PBSCT in the presence of a 'minor' ABO incompatibility. Patients were frequently transfused with recipient-compatible and donor-incompatible RBC and usually did not receive methotrexate in addition to cyclosporin A for graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) prophylaxis. In order to homogenize immuno-hematological (IH) assessment and transfusion practices within our protocol, we made proposals to 25 allo-transplant French centers on the following aspects: pre-inclusion IH assessment, IH exclusion criteria, transfusion rules, post-transplant IH surveillance and treatment of hemolysis. Analysis of responses to our proposals led to the elaboration of guidelines which were approved and implemented by the French Bone Marrow Transplantation Society (SFGM). Pre-inclusion IH testing includes mandatory detection and titration of anti-RBC allo-Ab, as well as titration of anti-A and anti-B Ab. The presence in the donor of an anti-A (group A or AB recipients), anti-B (group B or AB recipients) Ab with a titer >1/32 or the presence of allo-Ab against Rh, Kell, Fya, Fyb, Jka, Jkb, Ss Ag present on recipient RBC is an exclusion criterion for the protocol. ABO and RhD compatibility of RBC blood products with both HSC donor and recipient is mandatory. A similar compatibility is also required for Rh (other than D) and Kell Ag. If not possible, compatibility of RBC blood products with the HSC donor is mandatory. Lastly, guidelines regarding post-transplantation IH follow-up as well as acute hemolysis treatment have been elaborated. The implementation of these guidelines should contribute to enhancing the quality of transfusion practice after PBSCT. Such an approach will be applied to other aspects of transfusion medicine in the setting of HSC transplantation. Bone Marrow Transplantation(2000) 25, 507-512.  (+info)

Detection of an anti-RhD antibody 2 years after sensitization in a patient who had undergone an allogeneic BMT. (5/176)

We describe an HLA matched bone marrow transplantation with minor ABO incompatibility and RhD mismatch (donor RhD negative and recipient RhD positive). GVHD appeared on day +96 and therapy with steroid and cyclosporin was started. When GVHD disappeared and immunosuppressive therapy was stopped (2 years after BMT), an anti-RhD antibody was detected in the patient's serum. The delayed appearance of this antibody may have been associated with the prolonged immunosuppression that was required for treatment of the patient's GVHD.  (+info)

One antigen mismatched related donor bone marrow transplant in a patient with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia and beta-thalassaemia major: potential cure of both marrow disorders. (6/176)

We report a case of a 34-year-old man with T-ALL and beta-thalassaemia major who underwent a one antigen mismatched related donor bone marrow transplant. Five months post transplant chimeric studies revealed full donor haemopoiesis and the patient remains leukaemia and thalassaemia free at 12 months post transplant. Cumulative risk factors contributing to the increased transplant-related mortality in patients with two different marrow disorders are discussed.  (+info)

Blood utilisation in elective general surgery cases: requirements, ordering and transfusion practices. (7/176)

AIMS: For elective surgeries, over ordering of blood is a common practice. This can be decreased by simple means of changing the blood cross matching and ordering schedule depending upon the type of surgery performed. The principle aim of the study was to improve the efficacy of ordering system for maximum utilisation of blood and formulation of maximum surgical blood order schedule (MSBOS) for procedures where a complete cross-match appears mandatory. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We evaluated blood ordering and transfusion practices in 500 elective general surgical procedures at our institute. With the help of different indices such as cross-match to transfusion ratio (C/T ratio), transfusion probability (% T) and transfusion index (TI), blood ordering pattern was changed in the next 150 patients. RESULTS: Out of 1145 units of blood crossmatched for the first 500 patients only 265 were transfused with non-utilisation of 76.86% of ordered blood. With the help of the indices the wastage was reduced in next 150 patients, i.e. from 76.86% to 25.26% and improved the utilisation of blood, i.e. from 23.14% to 74.74%. CONCLUSIONS: Change of blood ordering patterns with use of MSBOS can avoid the over ordering of blood.  (+info)

Tacrolimus (FK 506) induced thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura after ABO mismatched second liver transplantation: salvage with plasmapheresis and prostacyclin. (8/176)

We report the course of thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) in a patient receiving tacrolimus (FK506) immunosuppression for an ABO mismatched second liver graft. A Chinese woman with fulminant hepatitis-B reactivation failed a living-related orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) due to portal vein thrombosis. An ABO mismatched cadaveric OLT (group A to O) was performed, with peri-operative plasmapheresis to reduce anti-A hemagglutinin titers. On day 30, she developed fever, hemolysis, thrombocytopenia and neurologic dulling. Prominent microangiopathic features in peripheral blood film, and characteristic brain lesions on magnetic resonance imaging confirmed TTP. She responded initially to intensive plasmapheresis with cryosupernatant replacement, and withdrawal of FK506. An attempted reintroduction of FK506 for threatened rejection led to TTP exacerbation. This was controlled with prolonged plasmapheresis and a ten-day infusion of prostacyclin. Immunosuppression was changed to mycophenolate mofetil. By day 53, the peripheral film and lactate dehydrogenase level had returned to baseline and plasmapheresis was stopped.  (+info)

The aim of this study was to estimate the magnitude of under-registration of deaths by making use of two valuable sources of data that already existed in Thailand. Although the method used herein has been known for more than half a century, it is still useful, particularly in countries having several sources of mortality data, such as Egypt10 and the Philippines.11 This method is frequently used in studies and is often referred to in epidemiology and ecology as capture-recapture.9,12-18. In Thailand, the dual records procedure or a similar method based on cross-matching of data from two different sources has been practised since the mid-1960s, and in that early period it was applied in a manner very similar to the one shown in this study in the sense that data from independent sources - in our case the survey and the vital event registration system - were cross-matched. However, some practical differences do exist. Whereas decades ago the deaths reported in the survey were manually cross-matched ...

The role of anti-HLA antibodies in renal transplantation. Human leukocyte antigens (HLA) are a highly polymorphic system of glycoproteins that have a functional role in the presentation of peptides to the immune system.1,2 HLA class I molecules are expressed on most nucleated cells, while HLA class II antigens are generally found on professional antigen-presenting cells.3 HLA class II antigens can also be upregulated on kidney cells.4 As a highly polymorphic system, however, specific HLA alleles can become the targets of antibody responses in people sensitised to foreign HLA molecules during pregnancy, transfusion of blood products, or organ transplantation.1,5,6 Humoral responses or sensitisation to HLA are major barriers to solid organ transplantation.1,7 Sensitised patients are more likely to crossmatch positive with potential donors and have a reduced chance of receiving a renal transplant.8 The detection of anti-HLA antibodies helps to predict both the function and survival of transplant ...
As a result of the advances in veterinary medicine the use and availability of blood products has dramatically increased. Understanding the genetics and role of blood types in dogs and cats is important for veterinarians, breeders, and pet owners to appreciate, because of the impact blood type incompatibilities can have. Blood typing, in any species, is not only necessary to improve the safety and efficacy of transfusions, but the knowledge it provides can prevent fatal neonatal isoerythrolysis during the first days of life in cats. Methods for blood typing and crossmatching have become available for use in practice and in the laboratory. BLOOD TYPES. Blood types refer to genetic markers on the surface of a red blood cell (erythrocyte) that are both species-specific and antigenic. Antigenicity refers to the likelihood the immune system will react and make antibodies, known as alloantibodies or isoantibodies, against the foreign substance; these antibodies can be detected in the plasma. A set of ...

The three past medical events that may cause a recipient to have antibodies are pregnancy, blood transfusion or prior transplantation. Refinements in laboratory techniques for crossmatching have led to very sensitive and accurate testing that is probably responsible for some of the improved outcomes of kidney transplantation. Although this testing is now highly complex and may involve as many as ten to fifteen different/separate tests, the final result is fairly simple. If the crossmatch is positive, the recipient has responded to the donor (antibodies were present and killed the cells) and transplantation should not be carried out. A negative crossmatch means the recipient has not responded and transplantation may proceed. Although this may seem confusing, we should all think of a crossmatch as the final and very important test indicating a go or no go with a transplant operation. A positive crossmatch essentially says the recipient will reject the donor organ and the transplant should not be ...
This years extra mural meeting was opened by Sebastiaan Heidt from the ETRL who discussed the pilot on patient-based external proficiency testing (EPT) cases. First, the paper-based EPT that was sent around in July 2015 was discussed. The results from this exercise showed a striking diversity in the advice on whether the transplant could go ahead or not. Some important issues came up, such as what to do in case a crossmatch without DTT is positive, the crossmatch with DTT is negative, and no information is available on autologous crossmatch results. Furthermore, there was lots of discussion on how to deal with HLA antibodies detected by Luminex only in case of a negative crossmatch. Some practical issues, such as how to deal with the prozone effect in Luminex assays were discussed. It was clear that center-specific policies on the value of antibodies detected by Luminex only are quite different. Next, the patient-based EPT on actual samples used for crossmatching was discussed. Also here, it ...
A blood group and antibody screen expires 72 hours after collection. A fresh blood group and antibody screen will be required for any units not commenced within the 72 hour period. The time and date of collection of the cross match specimen is indicated in the Electronic Medical Record (EMR). If a unit of red cells is ordered in EMR without a current blood group and antibody screen, a prompt will appear with the option to order a blood group and antibody screen at the time of ordering the red cells. The 72 hour rule also applies whenever a patient has been transfused or is/has been pregnant within the last 3 months. This internationally accepted safeguard is used to prevent a transfusion reaction in patients who form antibodies to foreign red cell antigens in response to pregnancy or transfusion. The only exceptions to the 72 hour rule are some neonates and infants during the first four months of postnatal life (neonatal extended expiry) or those patients who have extended expiry crossmatching ...

The cuvettes may be adapted to accept a closure means which permits the cuvettes to be pre-packaged with reagents required to carry out blood tests. The cuvettes have a hydrophilic polymer coating thereon that is non-destructive of red blood cells.
Today, the Gel Test is widely used in the world since it quickly became the human Gold standard in the Immunohematology diagnostic field. Thanks to this new technology the sensitivity has been highly increased compared to conventional methods (tube tests or others).. One of the main advantages of the Gel Test technology is the fact that cells never need to be washed for crossmatching or to perform direct antiglobulin testing. Other positive effects are the small sample size needed and the time saving.. Thanks to his long experience in the Immuno-hematology field, we were able to launch the Alvedia Gel Test range which aims at becoming the new veterinarian gold standard in order to provide veterinary health professionals with the most sensitive, reliable and rapid technology.. ...

Cross-matching is a process where a small sample of blood is taken from an intended blood product recipient (usually from a vein in their arm) then sent to a laboratory to determine compatibility with available donor blood (i.e., the blood that is in the blood bank). The red cell blood group (known as ABO and RH types) and other antigens (cell markers) on the recipients red cells need to be determined and the recipients antibodies to the donors red cells are checked. This is known as a group and screen or a group and hold. The cross-match process is important, as a mismatch of blood can be life threatening. When a match is found between the recipient and donor blood types, the donated blood is labelled with the details of the recipient and is ready to be transfused to the patient. Usually, a cross-match is only accurate for 72 hours, then the process needs to be carried out again if blood is still required.. ...

Agglutination occurs when an antibody interacts with antigen, resulting in cross-linking of the antigen particles by the antibody. This eventually leads to clumping. "Agglutination" comes from the Latin root agglutinare. "Agglutinare" means, "to glue". Cross-linking, or cross-matching is done to determine matches. Agglutination may occur when an unideterminate, multivalent antigen interacts with a single antibody. It may also occur if a multi determinate, univalent antigen interacts with at least two distinct antibodies. Cross Agglutination: when an antibody that is raised against a similar antigen agglutinates that antigen. Group Agglutination: when a collection of similar organisms is agglutinated by an agglutinin that is specific for that collection. Applications for the agglutination test BLOOD TYPING There are different blood groups like A,B, AB and O. The different blood types are differentiated according to the types of proteins on the surfaces of the red blood cells. Human red blood ...
While I agree with Renee that histotechs have to make many decisions, I dont necessarily agree that they make more decisions that other areas in the lab. I worked in the clinical lab for many years and had to make many decisions regarding the adequacy of a specimen and interpret the QC before that result could be released. Manual differentials require that the tech know the morphology of all cell types. Cross matching blood for transfusions requires interpretation before that blood can be released for transfusion to the patient. An error in cross-matching can kill the patient. I can tell you that my stress level as a Medical Technologist was much higher than my stress level as Histotechnician. There are many more examples where the knowledge and judgement of the tech will determine the outcome of patient result reporting and treatment. The pathologist does not make the final decision for the Med Tech before they release results to the clinician. We were also responsible for notifying the ...

The treatment of unruptured aneurysms (UAs) continues to make the news. In a series of well-written articles, we are told that there is something to learn from looking at death and discharge to long-term facilities from a large US hospital data base, cross-matching International Classification of Diseases-9 diagnostic and procedural codes.1-4 Is this research method appropriate for clinicians? Can it be misleading?. To answer this question, a thought experiment may help: Imagine a new treatment X for UAs. To assess the value of X, hospital discharge forms are examined 10 years after X is introduced, and we compare deaths or discharge-to-rehabilitation rates for patients treated with X with those for patients treated with coiling. The title of our article now reads, "Better Outcomes with X Than with Coiling in the US, 2001-2008." No one should accept our claim if treatment X turned out to be a prescription for sugar pills. The first reminder is that clinical research must first define appropriate ...

We found the ROMA algorithm in postmenopausal women increase the accuracy to discriminate benign form malignant ovarian tumors. We also identified high plasma levels of HE4 as an independent preoperative prognostic marker for poor overall survival in multivariate analyses.. When the ROC-AUCs of the HE4 and CA125 were analyzed, these markers performed similarly in postmenopausal women but the combination of HE4 and CA125 in ROMA algorithm performed better which is in agreement with several other studies [8-14]. In premenopausal women we found that CA125 had higher AUC value than both the HE4 and ROMA. This is in contrast to earlier results by Moore et al [4], where the combination of CA125 and HE4 performed better than CA125 alone. The disparity in results is probable due to the classification of borderline tumors and to different patient populations in the published papers.. We found a gradual increase of the HE4 levels according to the loss of cell-differentiation in all histological types of ...

Blood transfusions in dogs have become an integral part of advanced medicine. Just like humans, several blood groups have been identified in dogs, which are referred to as Dog Erythrocyte Antigens or DEA. A dog negative for a given blood group can produce antibodies following exposure to that specific blood group, which could lead to life-threatening hemolytic transfusion reactions with subsequent transfusion(s). It has been well documented that such antibodies� production can happen following blood transfusions in dogs. In women, pregnancy may result in sensitization of the mother. However it is unknown if a bitch may also be sensitized by pregnancy. Because of the endotheliochorial-type of placenta dogs have, it is thought to be less likely that pregnancy will sensitize the bitch and result in the production of antibodies. However, bitches with prior pregnancies are excluded from blood donor program and cross-matching is highly recommended prior to even a first blood transfusion, in contrast

Years ago when working in a combined centralized transfusion service/blood centre, one weekend when on shift by myself, I crossmatched a group AB patient for several RBC. The following Monday I was also working when the call for more blood came through. We had to order a new specimen as there was no more patient serum.

Class I human histocompatibility (HLA) antigens encoded by a small cluster of structural genes at the C locus on chromosome 6. They have significantly lower immunogenicity than the HLA-A and -B determinants and are therefore of minor importance in donor/recipient crossmatching. Their primary role is their high-risk association with certain disease manifestations (e.g., spondylarthritis, psoriasis, multiple myeloma ...

According to the Japanese Horoscope, your blood type says a lot about your personality and relationship compatibility. It is common for people in Japan to ask what your blood type is to determine how you will act or interact with their type. They even sell personality books in Japan that will teach you all about your particular blood type.. Blood types are based on what type of antigens you have on your red blood cells. Type A blood will have type A antigens, type B blood has B Antigens, AB blood type both types of antigen and type O doesnt have any antigens.. If you have ever given blood or had your blood drawn then your doctor may have told you your unique blood type. This is important information because not all blood types can be mixed safely. If you have type O blood and you receive type AB the blood can coagulate and you can have serious health problems and may even die from it.. Could it be possible that your unique blood type could say something about how you act and interact with other ...

Humans have 8 basic blood types that are considered to be common. This is despite the fact that human blood is made from the same basic elements in every person. The different typing is a reflection of the presence of antigens of the lack of them in certain combinations.. There are 4 lettered blood types: A, B, AB, and O. Each of these blood types is then assigned a positive (+) or negative (-) Rh value.. There are two types of universal donors when it comes to blood type. O blood is a universal donor for red blood cells and O Negative blood can be given to anyone, making it particularly valuable for blood donations. AB blood is a universal donor for blood plasma. Based on these blood types, some basic demographic data can be collected about how our blood makes us the same, but also creates certain differences.. ...
I recently heard a radio show where two callers claimed that their blood types had changed. One caller claimed that he was born O-, but recent tests said he was A+. Another caller claimed to change from AB- to AB+. Both callers claim that they had multiple tests before and after the change.. What I noticed is that both cases claim a conversion from Rh- to Rh+, or from type O to some other type. These could potentially be explained by a person carrying a gene for Rh factor or some other blood type, but failing to express the protein. Then the gene starts expressing, changing their blood type.. Of course both stories could be false, intentionally or otherwise. This is purely anecdotal evidence, and one caller claimed that her blood type change was due to extraterrestrial interference. I couldnt find any better documented cases of blood type changes after a quick search on the internet, so I thought Id ask here.. Are there any documented cases of a change in blood type?. ...

Abstract: Proper selection of donors blood group is essential to prevent transfusion hazards. It is known that ABO antigen is fully developed at birth but the newborn baby does not produce ABO antibodies until 3 to 6 months of age. The ABO antibodies present in the serum of newborn babies are derived from mothers blood due to placental transfer. So the blood group of the newborn baby is done by ABO antigen grouping (forward grouping) only, antibody grouping (reverse grouping) is not required. In case of transfusion of blood in newborn under 4 months of age, cross-matching of donors blood is done with the mothers blood if it is available. We know, recipients same group of blood is always preferable in case of transfusion in adults or older children. But selection of blood for transfusion in the infants under 4 months of age depends on the mothers blood group as well. If the mothers blood group differs from the infants blood group, the infants same group of blood may not be selected for ...

Polyagglutination refers to red blood cells that agglutinate upon exposure to almost all human sera, but not to autologous serum or the sera of newborns. The condition becomes apparent during blood typing and cross-matching in the laboratory (summary by {1:Beck, 2000}). Tn polyagglutination syndrome is an acquired clonal disorder characterized by the polyagglutination of red blood cells by naturally occurring anti-Tn antibodies following exposure of the Tn antigen on the surface of erythrocytes. Only a subset of red cells express the antigen, which can also be expressed on platelets and leukocytes. This condition may occur in healthy individuals who manifest asymptomatic anemia, leukopenia, or thrombocytopenia; however, there is also an association between the Tn antigen and leukemia or myelodysplastic disorders. The Tn antigen is an incompletely glycosylated membrane glycoprotein with an exposed N-acetylgalactosamine residue. The Tn antigen results from inactivation of C1GALT1C1, which encodes ...

Preparing for heart transplantation can be very stressful. Transplantation in children requires keen understanding of the impact of illness on both the patient and family. Johns Hopkins is one of only a few institutions with a dedicated childrens transplant team. During the general evaluation you and your child will meet with many members of your childs pediatric heart transplant team including: specialty doctors, nurses, surgeons, etc.. The medical evaluation (or "work-up") generally consists of blood-typing, viral screening, an electrocardiogram (EKG), chest X-ray, echocardiogram and cardiac catheterization. Most work-ups take a few weeks to complete depending on the severity of the illness. A psychosocial evaluation is conducted by the pediatric cardiology social worker and other members of the transplant team. When the work-up is complete, a letter of medical necessity as well as all medical information is sent to the insurance provider to request authorization to place the child on the ...

The start of transfusion medicine occurred during World War II when the major blood types A, B, AB and O, and Rh factor were identified. Type A persons have A antigen on the membrane of their red blood cells. They develop anti-B antibodies shortly after birth without any prior antigenic stimulation, thus these antibodies are called natural antibodies. Type B persons have B antigen on the membranes of their red blood cells, and such persons naturally have anti-A antibodies in their plasma. Type AB persons have both A and B antigens, and no anti-A or anti-B antibodies in their plasma. Type O persons, who lack these major red cell membrane antigens, have both anti-A and anti-B antibodies. When crossmatching a unit of blood for a transfusion, the biggest concern is to avoid giving the patient antigen that would react with their own antibodies. Thus, people with type O blood are considered to be universal donors, with regard to red blood transfusions, since there are no major (A or B) antigens on ...
