Storage of cord blood attracts private-sector interest. (1/586)

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)

Freezer anthropology: new uses for old blood. (2/586)

Archived blood fractions (plasma, settled red cells, white cells) have proved to be a rich and valuable source of DNA for human genetic studies. Large numbers of such samples were collected between 1960 and the present for protein and blood group studies, many of which are languishing in freezers or have already been discarded. More are discarded each year because the usefulness of these samples is not widely understood. Data from DNA derived from 10-35-year-old blood samples have been used to address the peopling of the New World and of the Pacific. Mitochondrial DNA haplotypes from studies using this source DNA support a single wave of migration into the New World (or a single source population for the New World), and that Mongolia was the likely source of the founding population. Data from Melanesia have shown that Polynesians are recent immigrants into the Pacific and did not arise from Melanesia.  (+info)

Correlation of cytokine elaboration with mononuclear cell adhesion to platelet storage bag plastic polymers: a pilot study. (3/586)

The basis for many febrile nonhemolytic transfusion reactions associated with platelet transfusion therapy is cytokine elaboration and accumulation in the storage bag, which correlate with the leukocyte content and the length of platelet storage. We propose that a possible additional variable in the elaboration and accumulation of cytokines is the differential adhesion of mononuclear cells to the plastic substrate of the platelet storage bag. We hypothesize that mononuclear cell adhesion-induced cytokine release is greater in random-donor platelet bags composed of the polyolefin polymer compared to the single-donor apheresis platelet bags composed of the polyvinyl chloride polymer with the tri-(2-ethylhexyl) trimellitate (TEHTM) plasticizer. For four blood donors, we demonstrate preferential mononuclear cell adhesion, in vitro, to discs of polyolefin polymer versus discs of polyvinyl chloride polymer with the TEHTM plasticizer. Scanning electron microscopy corroborates this. In addition, proinflammatory cytokine (interleukin 1beta [IL-1beta] and tumor necrosis factor alpha [TNF-alpha]) levels are greater in culture wells containing discs of polyolefin polymer than in those containing discs of polyvinyl chloride polymer with the TEHTM plasticizer, and even more so in storage bags containing polyolefin polymer versus polyvinyl chloride polymer with the TEHTM plasticizer (IL-1beta, TNF-alpha, IL-6, and IL-8). This study suggests, for the first time, that differential plastic substrate mononuclear cell adhesion may contribute to cytokine release during platelet storage. This may represent an additional variable in the pathophysiology of febrile nonhemolytic transfusion reactions in patients receiving stored platelet units.  (+info)

Heat treatment of normal human sera reveals antibodies to bactericidal permeability-inducing protein (BPI). (4/586)

Heat treatment of normal sera to 56 degrees C for 30 min, a common procedure for the inactivation of viruses, e.g. HIV, reveals the presence of antibodies to neutrophil cytoplasm antigens (ANCA), as detected by indirect immunofluorescence on ethanol-fixed human neutrophils and by antigen-specific ELISA for BPI. Reactivity was not seen to the other common vasculitis-associated antigens proteinase 3 (PR3) or myeloperoxidase (MPO). The effect of temperature was maximal at 56 degrees C, with substantial antibody demonstrable after only 5 min at this temperature. In experiments using polyethylene glycol (PEG)6000 to remove immune complexes, the effect of heating could be abrogated by preincubation with 8% PEG, which suggested that these anti BPI antibodies might be complexed in sera. After passage of normal plasma over a protein G column, the acid-eluted fraction contained elevated levels of antibodies to BPI but not to other vasculitis-associated antigens such as PR3 or MPO, nor to glomerular basement membrane (GBM), the Goodpasture antigen which is recognized by the pathogenically important human antibodies shown to mediate nephritis in transfer experiments. Moreover the levels of anti-BPI in the IgG fraction could be augmented by preincubation with glycine pH 2.5 for 30 min. This anti-BPI activity could be inhibited by addition of the unbound material from the protein G column and this inhibitory material was not heat-labile at 56 degrees C. The molecular specificity of this autoreactivity was confirmed using recombinant BPI in coincubation experiments and the epitope localized to the C or N terminal moieties by the use of recombinant fusion proteins.  (+info)

Monitoring oral anticoagulant treatment from plasma stored for up to 48 hours and frozen plasma. (5/586)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The number of patients being referred for lifelong anticoagulant treatment has increased markedly in the last years. The prothrombin time test is sometimes difficult to perform the same day as sample collection. The aim of this study is to determine International Normalized Ratio (INR) and vitamin-K dependent factor levels of frozen plasma and plasma stored for up 48 hours. DESIGN AND METHODS: The INR of 84 patients receiving acenocoumarol were determined fresh (0 hours), on samples stored between 2 degrees C and 8 degrees C for 24 hours and 48 hours, and on frozen samples (-40 degrees C) using 4 different thromboplastin reagents (Thromboplastin IS; Thromborel; Simplastin; and Thromboplastin D+G). In addition, factors II, VII, IX, X were determined in 34 of these patients in all these situations. We used the interclass correlation coefficient to compare the results obtained at 0 hours and the results obtained in the subsequent measurements. Both measurement and proportional errors were also estimated by linear regression analysis. RESULTS: The correlation coefficient of the INR between fresh and frozen plasma was 0.98, 0.98, 0.92 and 0.97 for IS, Thromborel, Simplastin and D+G respectively. The correlation between 0 and 24 hours was 0. 98, 0.91, 0.95 and 0.85 for IS, Thromborel, Simplastin and D+G respectively. By 48 hours although IS still had r=0.94, Thromborel, Simplastin, and D+G had r=0.55, r=0.50 and r=0.81, respectively. By 24 hours in stored plasma and in frozen plasma the activity of vitamin-K dependent factors was slightly reduced (r=0.97 at 24h/r=0. 94 with frozen plasma for factor II, r=0.92/0.96 for factor VII, r=0. 83/0.98 for factor IX, and r=0.98/0.95 for factor X). By 48 hours however, significant reductions were noted in the activity of these factors (r=0.94 for factor II, r=0.88 for factor VII, r=0.70 for factor IX, and r=0.98 for factor X). INTERPRETATION AND CONCLUSIONS: The INR can be reliable determined in frozen plasma and in plasma stored at 2-8 degrees C for up to 24 hours.  (+info)

Assessment of the stability of N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide in vitro: implications for assessment of left ventricular dysfunction. (6/586)

Plasma concentrations of N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) are raised in patients with left ventricular dysfunction. Measurement of this peptide has a potential diagnostic role in the identification and assessment of patients with heart failure. The stability of this peptide over time periods and conditions pertaining to routine clinical practice has not been reported previously. Blood samples were obtained from 15 subjects. One aliquot was processed immediately, and the remaining portions of the blood samples were stored for 24 h or 48 h at room temperature or on ice prior to processing. Plasma concentrations of NT-proBNP were measured with a novel immunoluminometric assay developed within our laboratory. Mean plasma concentrations of NT-proBNP were not significantly different whether blood samples were centrifuged immediately and stored at -70 degrees C or kept at room temperature or on ice for 24 h or 48 h. The mean percentage differences from baseline (reference standard) were +5.2% (95% confidence interval +18.2 to -7.8%) and +0.8% (+15.2 to -13.7%) after storage for 24 h at room temperature or on ice respectively, and +8.9% (+24.2 to -6. 5%) and +3.2% (+15.1 to -0.9%) for storage for 48 h at room temperature or on ice respectively. Pearson correlation coefficients for baseline NT-proBNP concentrations compared with levels at 48 h at room temperature or on ice were r=0.89 and r=0.83 respectively (both P<0.0001). Thus NT-proBNP extracted from plasma samples treated with EDTA and aprotinin is stable under conditions relevant to clinical practice.  (+info)

Preanalytical variables affecting the quantification of fatty acid ethyl esters in plasma and serum samples. (7/586)

BACKGROUND: Fatty acid ethyl esters (FAEEs) are cytotoxic nonoxidative ethanol metabolites produced by esterification of fatty acids and ethanol. FAEEs are detectable in blood up to 24 h after ethanol consumption. The objective of this study was to assess the impact of gender, serum or plasma triglyceride concentration, time and temperature of specimen storage, type of alcoholic beverage ingested, and the rate of ethanol consumption on FAEE concentrations in plasma or serum. METHODS: For some studies, subject were recruited volunteers; in others, residual blood samples after ethanol quantification were used. FAEEs were isolated by solid-phase extraction and quantified by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. RESULTS: For weight-adjusted amounts of ethanol intake, FAEE concentrations were twofold greater for men than women (P /=24 h. The type of alcoholic beverage and rate of consumption did not affect FAEE concentrations. CONCLUSION: These studies advance plasma and serum FAEE measurements closer to implementation as a clinical test for ethanol intake.  (+info)

Increased serum transferrin saturation is associated with lower serum transferrin receptor concentration. (8/586)

BACKGROUND: Serum transferrin receptor (sTfR) concentrations are increased in iron deficiency. We wished to examine whether they are decreased in the presence of potential iron-loading conditions, as reflected by increased transferrin saturation (TS) on a single occasion. METHODS: We compared sTfR concentrations between 570 controls with normal iron status and 189 cases with increased serum TS on a single occasion; these latter individuals may be potential cases of iron overload. Cases and controls were selected from adults who had been examined in the third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (1988-1994) and for whom excess sera were available to perform sTfR measurements after the survey's completion. Increased TS was defined as >60% for men and >55% for women; normal iron status was defined as having no evidence of iron deficiency, iron overload, or inflammation indicated by serum ferritin, TS, erythrocyte protoporphyrin, and C-reactive protein. RESULTS: Mean sTfR and mean log sTfR:ferritin were approximately 10% and 24% lower, respectively, in cases than in controls (P <0.002). Cases were significantly more likely to have an sTfR value <2.9 mg/L, the lower limit of the reference interval, than were controls (odds ratio = 1.8; 95% confidence interval, 1.04-2.37). CONCLUSION: Our results support previous studies that suggested that sTfR may be useful for assessing high iron status in populations.  (+info)

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. The accumulation of biologic response modifiers such as soluble CD40 ligand sCD4oL, lyso-phosphatidylcholine lyso-PC, and Regulated on ...

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 ...
A large multicenter randomized controlled trial of approximately 1700 critically ill patients status post complex cardiac surgery with sternotomy, called the Red Cell Storage Duration Study (RECESS), is currently ongoing. In the RECESS trial, study groups are randomized to either RBCs of less than or equal to 10 days storage time or to greater than or equal to 21 days. The primary outcome of RECESS is a change in multiple organ dysfunction score. Secondary outcomes in RECESS include all cause 28-day mortality, mechanical ventilation free days, and other clinical outcomes. The RECESS study presents a unique opportunity to investigate mechanisms associated with RBC storage duration in the context of clinical outcomes for well-characterized surgical study groups. The ancillary study described here is called the Mechanism and Repository Study (MARS) for RECESS.. The MARS study will analyze the most commonly reported and hypothesized mechanisms considered to be associated with the RBC storage lesion ...
Background and objectives: Platelet storage lesions (PSL) are the sum of deleterious changes that platelets undergo during storage, affecting platelet concentrate viability for transfusion. In veterinary medicine, transfusion medicine has gained popularity and recent advances have been made. There is a continuous effort to prolong the shelf life and improve the quality of platelet concentrates. Removal of leukocytes has been proven to reduce febrile post-transfusion reactions and decrease platelet premature activation and apoptosis in humans. The present study objectives were to determine if leukoreduced canine platelet concentrates have fewer and delayed onset of in vitro storage lesions compared with non-leukoreduced concentrates and to determine which variable best predicts in vitro platelet viability. Methods: Platelet concentrates from twelve dogs were stored between 22°C - 24°C under continuous agitation for 7 days. Each sample was equally divided into leukoreduced (LR), leukoreduced ...

This study is an ancillary (add-on) study to the clinical trial entitled Red Cell Storage Duration Study (RECESS), which has identifier NCT00991341. The RECESS study randomizes cardiac surgery patients to receive either red blood cell units stored for no more than 10 days, or red blood cell units stored for at least 21 days, if they need any red blood cell transfusions during their hospital stay for the surgery.. This ancillary study is entitled Impact of Blood Storage Duration on Physiologic Measures: RECESS Ancillary Physiologic Study (RECAP). The hypothesis of the RECAP study is that there will be differences between the two randomized treatment groups in how much the following measurements change, from shortly before a red blood cell transfusion to shortly after a red blood cell transfusion, and from before surgery to 24 hours after surgery:. ...

BACKGROUND: Clinical trials are investigating the potential benefit resulting from a reduced maximum storage interval for red blood cells (RBCs). The key drivers that determine RBC age at the time of issue vary among individual hospitals. Although progressive reduction in the maximum storage period of RBCs would be expected to result in smaller hospital inventories and reduced blood availability, the magnitude of the effect is unknown. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS: Data on current hospital blood inventories were collected from 11 hospitals and three blood centers in five nations. A general predictive model for the age of RBCs at the time of issue was developed based on considerations of demand for RBCs in the hospital. RESULTS: Age of RBCs at issue is sensitive to the following factors: ABO group, storage age at the time of receipt by the hospital, the restock interval, inventory reserve, mean demand, and variation in demand. CONCLUSIONS: A simple model, based on hospital demand, may serve as the basis for
The shelf-life of stored red blood cells (RBCs) is typically 42 and 35 days for human and canine RBCs, respectively. Given that blood is a precious and limited resource, both human and veterinary blood banks typically dispense the oldest RBC units first to reduce wastage. However, accumulating evidence suggests that transfusion of RBCs stored ≥ 14 days is associated with increased rates of morbidity and mortality in hospitalized human patients. In our study of healthy dogs receiving autologous RBC transfusions stored for 7 (fresh) and 28 (old) days, administration of old, but not fresh, RBC units was associated with a pro-inflammatory cytokine response, exemplified by monocyte chemoattractant protein (MCP)-1, and accompanied by increased neutrophil counts and decreased platelet counts.. We propose to evaluate markers of inflammation, hemolysis, and endothelial activation in a randomized clinical trial in which client-owned dogs with primary immune-mediated hemolytic anemia (IMHA) and ...

As they sit in the fridge marinading in their own filthy excretions, human erythrocytes mutate into something grotesque, no longer resembling human blood and wholly incapable of carrying oxygen. It is unbelievable that anybody should want to infuse such material into their patients, and concerns have been raised about the safety of using particularly old cells as their near their expiry. In Australia, packed red blood cells can only be stored for a maximum of 42 days (which is slightly conservative - internationally, the maximum PRBC shelf life is 49 days). Surprisingly, international clinical trial data supports the safety of existing practice. CICM SAQs mention storage lesions often, but only Question 29.1 from the first paper of 2010 has actually asked anything directly about them.

Morphometric analysis of avian spermatozoa from sperm samples preserved in formalin is a frequently adopted procedure in basic science (e.g. evolutionary ecology) and applied disciplines (e.g. animal breeding). Many research questions such as individual-based longitudinal studies of sperm traits require comparisons of formalin-stored sperm samples collected across multiple sampling events, which may be separated by years. Such analyses presuppose that prolonged storage in formalin does not affect sperm morphology, an assumption often implicitly made in the analysis of avian sperm morphology. This assumption, however, has never been tested, although for many study designs a potential effect of sperm storage duration may well confound the focal analysis. Based on pairwise comparisons of 22 experimental ejaculates from three passerine bird species, we found no evidence that differential storage duration of more than 1 year had affected the total length of spermatozoa stored in a 5 % formaldehyde ...

The results of the baseline grain quality evaluations at the start of the investigation (day 0) are presented in Table 2. The effect of storage duration and botanical treatments on the percent grain moisture content (%MC) are presented in Table 3 and figures 1a & b, respectively. There were significant (P=0.05) storage duration, treatment and storage duration by treatment interaction effects on the percent grain moisture content. The treatment effects were significant for 60, 90 and 150 days of grain storage. Storage duration influenced the %MC of both untreated and treated grains. The grain MC increased significantly between 0 and 30 days for all treatments including the untreated control. Thereafter, there was a significant reduction (P=0.05) in %MC for all the treatments for the next 3 months (up to 120 days) of grain storage. Grains treated with the synthetic insecticide had consistently lower (P=0.05) %MC than those treated with botanicals or the untreated control during the entire five ...
Proven and potential clinical benefits of washing red blood cells before transfusion: current perspectives Amy E Schmidt, Majed A Refaai, Scott A Kirkley, Neil Blumberg Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, NY, USA Abstract: Red blood cells (RBCs) are washed for a variety of reasons such as to remove excess potassium, cytokines, and other allergen proteins from the supernatant and/or to mitigate the effects of the storage lesion. The storage lesion is a product of RBC aging and include leakage of potassium and chloride from the RBCs, depletion of 2,3-diphosphoglycerate and adenosine triphosphate, loss of phospholipids and cholesterol, exposure of phosphatidylserine, elaboration of lipid mediators, loss of glutathione, autoxidation of hemoglobin to methemoglobin contributing to decreased blood flow viscosity and adherence to endothelial cells, increased microparticle formation, and disruption of NO-mediated vasodilation.

About 5,000 liver transplants are performed annually in the United States, and a key factor ensuring success is maintaining a healthy donor organ that can function effectively in the recipient. However, transplanted livers typically incur substantial damage when blood flow is restored to the organ after the transplant.
Cell preparation. Sensory neurons were used within 24 hr of dissociation from adult Sprague Dawley rats and were stored at room temperature in L15 media plus nerve growth factor (50 ng/ml). Only cells with Ca-channel current amplitudes of ,1 nA were used for analysis. We observed no differences in Ca-channel current, opioid responses, or mRNA expression between freshly dissociated cells and those studied 1 d later. For example, in a random selection of tooth-pulp afferents studied immediately after dissociation versus those studied 24 hr later, MOR mRNA was detectable in 51% of fresh (n = 33) and 57% of 24 hr (n = 120) cells; those that expressed MOR mRNA had mean concentrations of 13.8 ± 3.2 and 17.3 ± 2.6 pm in fresh and 24 hr cells, respectively.. All methods for surgeries, dissections, dissociations, and cell storage are as described previously (Eckert et al., 1997), except for small adjustments of incubation times. The two surgeries used were shallow dental drilling to deposit crystals of ...

Value of Pumped Storage in a Thermal System. Construction of pumped storage hydroelectric capacity has not progressed as rapidly as desired particularly in all thermal systems. The wide interest in real but intangible benefits may have diverted attention from the value that will justify the construction of pumped storage capacity namely, low load factor peaking capacity. The wide acceptance of heavy energy penalties applied to pumped storage has also worked against this factor. Careful evaluations of this penalty considering lifetime load factors of thermal equipment with and without pumped storage may show the penalty to be small and, in some cases, a credit.
Ask IT professionals what their number one priority is in the next 12 months and in coming years and theyre likely to tell you increased usage of virtualization. No big surprise really since, for some time now, virtualization has been one of the most effective tools for driving efficiencies and effectiveness (and of course, saving money) across IT.. Driving those efficiencies, it turns out, will come in large part through convergence and consolidation virtualization brings about, and unified storage (or multiprotocol or federated storage) may be the key to making it all a reality. Why? Because while separate specialist storage platforms have gone a long way to increasing IT effectiveness, theyve also taken their toll on resource efficiency - something unified storage can finally put a serious dent in.. Most IT pros know this already, of course. Which is why a recent survey revealed that 70% of organizations are [Read more…]. ...

Dr. Lee has gone over the physiologic changes that have been observed during storage and whats really striking is theyre repeatable. Study after study after study you see these changes in red cell storage. So theres no doubt that that occurs in vitro and you saw some of the infusion studies in healthy volunteers and then were faced now with the real question you know practically do we need to change our red cell storage criteria? And obviously we wouldnt base that solely on laboratory data or even in healthy volunteers, were going to base that on clinical trials and so were going to go through those. And the changes that are seen in vitro are biochemical, they are metabolic, structural the red cells become echinocytes as the store inflammatory changes, you can show cytokines and adhesion molecules increase and physiologic changes like a drop in 23DPG its completely absent by 14 days of storage. Whats not clear is to the extent at which these changes are irreversible and when the red ...

Authors: Leterrier, F. , Saint-Blancard, J. , Stoltz, J.F. Article Type: Review Article Abstract: An enormous amount of work has been performed on the metabolic properties of the red blood cell during its storage in blood bank conditions, but the membrane structure changes (both at the molecular and at the macroscopic level) and the rheological perturbations of stored erythrocytes have been comparatively less well studied. In the last decade, the progress in our understanding of the organization and the properties of the red blood cell membrane has been considerable. It is thus interesting to review the work concerning the biophysical aspects of blood storage in the light of these recent findings. In a first …part, recent advances about the normal erythrocyte are summarized, emphasizing membrane structure and rheological properties. The reviewed literature is essentially limited to 1979-1981. The second part deals with the biological and rheological pertubations caused by storage of the blood ...

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 ...

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 ...

Most RBC components available today are derived from the collection of 450 to 500 mL of whole blood into sterile plastic bags containing citrate-phosphate-dextrose (CPD) anticoagulant. The whole blood is spun to sediment out the RBCs, and most of the plasma is removed by pushing it into a preattached satellite bag. Generally, 100 to 110 mL of a nutrient additive solution is added back to the packed RBCs, creating an additive RBC product that has a final hematocrit of 55% to 60% (0.55 to 0.60). A variety of additive solutions are in use today, each of which contains a particular mix of glucose, adenine, and in some cases, mannitol (Table⇓). These solutions prolong the shelf life of the RBC product from 21 days (packed RBCs in CPD) to 42 days (additive RBCs). A transfusion of 10 mL/kg of additive RBCs would be expected to raise the patients hematocrit by 7% to 8% (0.07 to 0.08).. ...
Usually packed red blood cells (pRBCs) require specific conditions in storage procedures to ensure the maximum shelf life of up to 42 days in 2-6°C. However, molecular and biochemical consequences can affect the stored blood cells; these changes are collectively labeled as storage lesions. In this study, the effect of prolonged storage was assessed through investigating morphological changes and evaluating oxidative stress. Samples from leukodepleted pRBC in SAGM stored at 4°C for 42 days were withdrawn aseptically on day 0, day 14, day 28, and day 42. Morphological changes were observed using scanning electron microscopy and correlated with osmotic fragility and hematocrit. Oxidative injury was studied through assessing MDA level as a marker for lipid peroxidation. Osmotic fragility test showed that extended storage time caused increase in the osmotic fragility. The hematocrit increased by 6.6% from day 0 to day 42. The last 2 weeks show alteration in the morphology with the appearance of ...

BACKGROUND: AS-7 is a new alkaline hypotonic red cell additive solution (AS) shown to improve red cell quality during storage compared with AS-1. We sought to compare red cells stored in AS-7 with those stored in SAGM using RCC that were either untreated, or washed or irradiated on day 14 of storage. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS: A pooled and split study design was used to produce seven identical RCC (four in SAGM and three in AS-7). At day 14 following donation, two RCC (one in SAGM and one in AS-7) were gamma irradiated and three RCC (two in SAGM and one in AS-7) were washed and resuspended in either SAGM or AS-7. RCC were sampled for analysis throughout storage and at end of shelf life: day 28 for washed or irradiated and day 35 for untreated RCC. RESULTS: For untreated, washed or irradiated RCC, those stored in AS-7 had lower haemolysis, red cell microvesicles and supernatant potassium content than RCC in SAGM. In addition, ATP levels and pH were better maintained in AS-7 RCC than in SAGM RCC.
Chemical, microbiological and sensorial properties were investigated depending on the storage time to understand the impacts of gamma irradiation at doses of 4 and 5 kGy on frog legs (Rana esculenta) during storage at 2 °C. While TVB-N values of control groups found as 50.11 mg/100 g after a 10 day storage period, 4 and 5 kGy frog legs were found as 48.08 and 43.29 mg/100 g respectively after 17 d ...
Did you eat a great deal of beets last night? Because that might do it. But it might also be blood. Simply a drop of blood in urine turns it pink, says Sur. While a general practitioner might wave that off as no big deal, Sur says that any blood in the urine requires a see to the urologist, as it might be due to infection, or an early indication of bladder cancer. (It most likely isnt really cancer, however better safe than sorry.).. 8. Darker pink.. Looks like: Cabernet.. This might indicate that theres more than a little bit of blood in your urine, which might signify a potential bladder infection or cancer. Kidney stones, which about 10 percent of the United States population gets, can also trigger blood in the urine, as can less common bladder stones.. 9. Dark pink.. Looks like: Red wine.. OK, thats a great deal of blood. And whats more worrying is that it might be old blood, which turns dark as it embolisms and breaks down. The existence of old blood is really worrisome because it ...

Partly because of problems with his physical health, he decided on a change in career and qualified as a teacher. A couple of years later he began to notice he was becoming very tired.. He had been diagnosed with diabetes when he was 23, and had taken daily injections of insulin - and more recently been using an insulin pump - ever since. But this feeling of tiredness was new. At first he put it down to the demands of his new job, but eventually saw his doctor about his symptoms. Peters doctor sent him for tests and investigations at his local hospital.. He says: I was admitted to hospital for an endoscopy investigation, as my doctor thought I might have a problem in my intestines. I had some standard blood tests, and when the results came back they showed high calcium levels. I was told I had acute kidney failure.. It turned out Peters immune system, the bodys system for fighting infection, had started to attack his own kidney. This process, called autoimmunity, is a common cause of kidney ...

I agree with you in this situation , especially having done it myself. When I was having ,30g a day of carbs a day I really struggled to eat. It was fine while I was cutting but because I was consuming so much protein, I wanted to bulk with minimal carbs as I was gettin more protein than ever. The thing is, I couldnt bulk like this because I couldnt get enough calories in. Although this is a side effect of a low carb diet, its not the main mechanism in which fat loss occurs, although it does have a valuable input. Id very much like to see some bulk on a ketogenic diet, I know it wouldnt be optimal anabolically, but I dont think I could ever consistently be in a calorie surplus without the good old blood sugar spikes and troughs ...
