Despite the implementation of safety advances, the risk remains for known and unknown potential infectious agents and pathogens to threaten the blood supply and blood products. In recent years, these threats have included West Nile virus; Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease and its variant, mad cow disease; and parvovirus B19. In each instance, NHF has worked with the FDA, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, manufacturers and the medical and consumer communities to assess risk and communicate information. Further, NHF is well positioned to influence public policy decisions in Congress and by active participation on key federal committees. The hemophilia community is now represented on the Health and Human Services Advisory Committee on Blood Safety and Availability and the FDAs Blood Products Advisory Committee and Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies Advisory Committee.. Throughout its work on blood safety, NHFs stance has never wavered. Today NHFs commitment to blood product safety ...

Contacts. Chief investigators ...
In some of the countries, transfusion of infected blood or blood products is a serious concern because the prevalence of HIV and hepatitis B and C in the blood donor populations is higher than the prevalence in the global donor population. Screened blood units have higher rates of most transfusion transmitted infections (TTIs) than the general global donor population and, according to CDC reports, the presence of TTIs remains the primary reason for discarding donated blood. Lack of safe blood has also been directly implicated in HIV transmission in Central Asia and other countries.. Safe blood is a recognized priority in target countries and a key element in their fight against HIV/AIDS and efforts to achieve Sustainable Development Goals, but the overall regulatory framework for health, including the lack of clear legal and political accountability, is still evolving in each country. This poses a particularly serious challenge for effectively addressing blood safety.. ...

Although potentially contaminated blood was used as an ingredient in blood products for only a short time - months - until its withdrawal, the question is why was it used at all?. According to James Kreppner, who helped force a judicial inquiry into blood safety in Canada which led to a recent $C1.2 billion ($1.4 billion) compensation settlement for Canadian victims of hepatitis C, such use would breach all modern safety procedures. He also believes it breached safety conventions that were known at the time: I just cant believe that any organisation would do something like this ...

Congenital CMVI is one of the most common intrauterine infections in the world and occurs on average in 0.2-2.5% of live births, and in developed countries, in 0.6-0.7% of newborns. In this case, the source of infection for the fetus is almost always the mother who undergoes CMVI during pregnancy. Exceptions are those extremely rare cases when transfusion transmission of cytomegalovirus (CMV) occurs during intrauterine administration of blood products infected with CMV to the fetus. Intrauterine CMVI develops as a result of pre- or intrapartum infection. With prenatal infection of the fetus, there is a transplacental transmission of CMV. With intranatal - the virus enters the body of the child by aspiration or ingestion of infected amniotic fluid and / or infected secrets of the birth canal of the mother. Continue reading →. ...
BACKGROUND:. Despite a marked reduction in the risk of transfusion-transmitted disease, lessons learned from the delayed recognition of HIV transmission by transfusion, underscore the necessity for continued vigilance for blood safety. The study will correct a significant lack of prospective studies of transfusion transmitted disease in infants and children in this country. A critical material outcome of the study will be the establishment of a large serum and cell repository of linked patient recipient samples. Such a repository, representing prospective studies in a pediatric population, will be unique. It will provide a means for ongoing surveillance to identify more rapidly emerging infectious agents and to aid in determining whether they present a significant risk to the blood supply. Because of a close collaboration and parallel structure with two related adult transfusion studies, age related comparisons of viral clearance and clinical outcomes should likewise be derived from this ...
The ECDC risk, as assessed on 23 August 2011, remains unchanged. The main risk is to persons residing in, visiting and working in the affected areas of Greece, particularly Evrotas in Lakonia. The risk for further extension of malaria transmission into the EU as a result of this event is considered low at present. EU national blood competent authorities should be considering whether to implement deferral measures for persons returning from these specific affected areas in Greece, taking into consideration measures currently implemented by the Greek blood safety authorities and after a considered risk assessment in collaboration with their national public health authorities. ...

The objectives of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) Recipient Epidemiology and Donor Evaluation Study-III (REDS-III) program are to ensure safe and effective blood banking and transfusion medicine practices through a comprehensive, multifaceted strategy involving basic, translational, and clinical research to improve the benefits of transfusion while reducing its risks. REDS-III is the successor to the REDS and REDS-II programs which, over the past 20 years, have proven to be the premier research programs in blood collection and transfusion safety in the United States. REDS-II expanded the programs focus to include countries seriously affected by the AIDS epidemic, many of which face critical blood safety and supply challenges. Underscoring the importance of global blood safety, the number of international countries/regions in REDS-III has now expanded to include new sites in Brazil, China and South Africa. ...
BACKGROUND: In sub-Saharan Africa, the prevalence of malaria parasitemia in blood donors varies from 0.6% to 50%. Although the burden of TTM in malaria-endemic countries is unknown, it is recommended that all donated blood is screened for malaria parasites. This study aimed to establish the incidence of TTM and identify a suitable screening test. METHODS: Pregnant women, children, and immunocompromised malaria-negative transfusion recipients in a teaching hospital in Ghana were recruited over the course of 1 year. Parasites detected in recipients within 14 days of the transfusion were genotyped and compared to parasites in the transfused blood. The presence of genotypically identical parasites in the recipient and the transfused blood confirmed transfusion-transmitted malaria. Four malaria screening tests were compared to assess their usefulness in the context of African blood banks. RESULTS: Of the 50 patients who received transfusions that were positive for Plasmodium falciparum by polymerase ...

These procedures are followed by all blood centers nationwide and are monitored under the regulatory guidance of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).. Only volunteers are permitted to donate blood, and there are no incentives to give. (Other than the fact that you can save lives, and feel good about yourself, that is!) Studies prove that community volunteers are the safest source of blood for transfusion. Every donor completes a health history questionnaire and screening interview to identify donors who may be at risk for carrying blood-borne disease. Strict confidentiality, as well as the absence of incentives or pressure to donate, encourage honest answers, and deferral of any potential donor with possible health risks.. Donated blood is tested for evidence of infectious disease, including hepatitis B and C, HIV 1 and 2, HTLV I and II, syphilis, West Nile virus, and Chagas disease. The donors blood type is also determined. Any unit of blood that shows evidence of carrying an infectious ...
This program will review the creation and benefits of Blood School, an eight-hour introductory course on transfusion safety for nurses. Recognizing that primary blood transfusion education was too procedure-centric, this course was developed as a supplement to provide education on the core foundations of transfusion medicine. Blood School uses a combination of didactic and active learning approaches, in order for the participants to feel more knowledgeable, comfortable, and safer with all transfusion-related processes. In doing so, it empowers them to be better advocates for patients, take action whenever they recognize negative situations related to blood transfusions, and help ensure that the right patient gets the right blood component for the right reason in the safest way. ...

Treatment for HIV consists of antiretroviral therapy (ART), combinations of drugs that inhibit the growth and replication of HIV at various stages of its life cycle. The goal of ART is to decrease the viral load, the number of HIV copies in the blood, to undetectable levels, meaning < 50 copies/milliliter (ml) of blood. ART is usually begun when the number of CD4 cells drops to 200-500 cells per cubic milliliter. A normal CD4 count is 600-1,200 cells/cubic ml.. From 2003-2013, more than 20 new drugs were approved to treat HIV. They include entry inhibitors, integrase inhibitors, nonnucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs), nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs) and protease inhibitors. ART drugs are prescribed in combinations of two or more from different classes to prevent HIV from developing resistance to single drugs. In 2013, the FDA approved Stribild™, the first agent containing four drugs, called quad therapy. A year later, in 2013, the FDA approved Tivicay® ...
Blood donation screening for antibodies to human T-lymphotropic viruses (HTLV) has been in place in the United States since the end of 1988, first focused on HTLV-I and then on HTLV-I and HTLV-II. HTLV-II is likely less pathogenic than HTLV-I but all data indicate that HTLV-II is more common in the US than HTLV-I and, like HTLV-I, is transmitted in the US primarily via illegal injection drug use and sexually (mostly male to female, explaining higher prevalence rates in females). The HTLV donation prevalence rate in the US is comparable to that of HIV (approximately 3 per 100,000 donations) according to data generated by the American Red Cross (ARC); very low rates of incident infections have also been documented (again, mostly in females). Low prevalence in the US and Canada is also associated with the absence of documented transfusion transmission since screening was initiated.. The issue before the BPAC today is that since screening began in 1988, multiple FDA-licensed screening tests with ...
Author summary Zika virus (ZIKV) is transmitted to humans primarily through mosquito bites, but there have also been cases of sexual, perinatal, and suspected blood transfusion transmission. It has been associated with fetal malformations and neurological disorders in adults. The rising concern about this pathogen led the World Health Organization to declare it as a public health emergency of international concern regarding neurological disorders. There is an urgent global scientific effort underway to better understand ZIKV biology and define interactions that occur between the virus and the host cell. We evaluated how ZIKV infection counteracts the assembly of dynamic aggregates of RNA and proteins called stress granules (SGs). We observed that ZIKV blocks SG assembly induced by sodium arsenite (Ars), but not by sodium selenite or Pateamine A. We demonstrate that this difference is related to the ability of ZIKV to modulate the dephosphorylation of eIF2α via its phosphatase. Our work demonstrates
Mediwares Bloodsafe Tx mobile device integrates with e-medical record systems and ensures that patients receive correct blood transfusions.
It was Alter who accidentally dropped the bombshell news. At a blood bank meeting in the Croatian capital Zagreb in late May 2010, he presented an overview of current blood safety issues, and his Power-Point presentation had one slide on what he called the Agent du jour, XMRV. Although Alter didnt present any evidence, the slide was blunt: The data in the Lombardi et al. Sciencemanuscript are extremely strong and likely true, despite the controversy, one bullet point said. We (FDA & NIH) have independently confirmed the Lombardi group findings, read another.. After the editor of a Dutch newsletter discovered the slide on the meetings Web site and sent out a press release, the CFS world exploded, again. Is this it, then, the big one???? Holy ****!!!!! one blogger wrote on the Phoenix Rising forum.. Some researchers had doubts. True, Alter had a stellar reputation, but he wasnt a retrovirologist. And Lo in the 1990s had pushed the widely discredited theory that a Mycoplasma infection ...

Background. In many developed countries hepatitis E virus (HEV) infections have occurred predominantly in travellers to countries endemic for HEV. HEV is a potential threat to blood safety as the virus is transfusion-transmissible. To minimise this risk in Australia, individuals diagnosed with HEV are deferred. Malarial deferrals, when donors are restricted from donating fresh blood components following travel to an area in which malaria is endemic, probably also decrease the HEV risk, by deferring donors who travel to many countries also endemic for HEV. The aim of this study is to describe overseas-acquired HEV cases in Australia, in order to determine whether infection in travellers poses a risk to Australian blood safety. Materials and methods. Details of all notified HEV cases in Australia from 2002 to 2014 were accessed, and importation rates estimated. Countries in which HEV was acquired were compared to those for which donations are restricted following travel because of a malaria risk.
Dietary exposure to bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) contaminated bovine tissues is considered as the origin of variant Creutzfeldt Jakob (vCJD) disease in human. To date, BSE agent is the only recognized zoonotic prion. Despite the variety of Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathy (TSE) agents that have been circulating for centuries in farmed ruminants there is no apparent epidemiological link between exposure to ruminant products and the occurrence of other form of TSE in human like sporadic Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease (sCJD). However, the zoonotic potential of the diversity of circulating TSE agents has never been systematically assessed. The major issue in experimental assessment of TSEs zoonotic potential lies in the modeling of the species barrier, the biological phenomenon that limits TSE agents propagation from a species to another. In the last decade, mice genetically engineered to express normal forms of the human prion protein has proved essential in studying human prions ...

The potential risk of acquiring a transfusion-transmitted infection by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B (HBV) virus, hepatitis C (HCV) virus, or Trypanosoma cruzi was estimated for seven South American and five Central American countries during the period 1994-1997. The estimates were based on official national reports of the number of donors, blood screening coverage, and prevalence of serologic markers for infectious diseases. Coverage of screening in 1997 was 100% in 12 and 11 countries for HIV and HBV respectively. Complete screening for HCV was reported by only one country in 1994 and by six in 1997. For T. cruzi, the number of countries with 100% screening coverage increased from two in 1994 to four in 1997. In 1994, three countries showed risk of transfusion-transmitted infections for HIV, seven for HBV, eight for HCV, and seven for T. cruzi. The risk of receiving an infected blood unit and acquiring a transfusion-transmitted infection has been reduced with time in 10 of the 12

Among the many acts of compassion was an upsurge in the number of people who donated blood.. Short-term increases in the number of blood donations following national disasters have been documented. But we dont know as much about the long-term impact on the blood supply. In other words, do people who donate blood after a national disaster-particularly first-time donors-continue to donate blood in non-disaster situations? Another concern is the safety of donated blood because first-time donors are more likely to have transfusion-transmissible viral infections (TTVIs) than people who donate blood regularly.. In a study reported in the May 7, 2003 Journal of the American Medical Association , researchers found that the events of September 11, 2001 resulted in an increase in first-time donors, ...

My name is Gary Davis and I would like to share my experiences donating blood with my daughter Katie. A little history first.. I had my hip replaced at Stanford Hospital in October 2008. A few months later I got a call from Stanford Blood Center (SBC) asking me if I could donate. Id actually been interested in donating for years but never had a direct request to get me started. SBC happened to have a mobile truck due in my area the following week so I committed to visiting during my lunch hour. This was my first donation and afterwards, the technician told me my blood type was O- and that I tested negative to the cytomegalovirus (CMV). Id never heard of CMV and asked a few questions. This was the start of a learning experience for me.. I learned that in an emergency it can take a half hour to type someones blood and since O- is the universal blood type, it would be used until a patients blood type could be identified.. I found out about the need for platelets at Stanford Hospital for leukemia ...

Guest post by Susan Ipaktchian, originally published on Scope, Stanford University School of Medicines blog.. Do you know your blood type? I was surprised when many of my friends and family members said they didnt know theirs. But heres an easy way to find out and also do a little good work at the same time - become a blood donor.. Ive been a regular donor at the Stanford Blood Center for nearly six years. I already knew my blood type, thanks to an experiment in a high school biology class, and thats part of what prompted me to become a donor in the first place. I have AB+ blood, which is on the rare side (about 3.4 percent of Americans have that blood type). What I didnt know was that I had never had cytomegalovirus, or CMV, a widespread virus that rarely causes symptoms but can be dangerous to people who have weak immune systems. The Stanford center routinely tests donated blood for the presence of CMV antibodies as well as other viruses. Thats because the center is primary supplier of ...
Abstract. ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Transfusion-transmitted infections continue to be a threat to the safety of the blood supply, in particular the risk is high for parent rally transmitted viral hepatitis in pediatric malignancy. OBJECTIVE: The aim is to estimate the prevalence of hepatitis in children with malignancy, identify some variables that could affect the prevalence of hepatitis in these patients, and to have an idea about the effect of vaccination in controlling hepatitis infection. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A cross sectional study was done over ten months period between December 1st, 2013 to September 30th, 2014 at the Pediatric Oncology Unit in Al- Emamain Al -Kadimain Medical City, A total of (54) children between the age of [1-15] years with malignancy who were diagnosed and treated at the pediatric oncology department before 6 months and more were studied. Information regarding age, gender ,residence, hepatitis vaccine received ,number of blood transfusion ,any surgical intervention for ...

Estimates of the risk of bloodborne viral infections are essential for monitoring the safety of the blood supply and the impact of new screening tests. Incidence rates of seroconversion and the residual risk for HBV, HIV and HCV were calculated among Spanish repeat donors between 1997 and 1999 at 22 blood donation centres, and at 7 centres between 2000 and 2002. The residual risk per million donations was estimated to be 18.67 for HBV, 2.49 for HIV and 10.96 for HCV (between 1997 and 1999). For the 2000-2002 period, the residual risk per million donations was estimated to be 9.78 for HBV, 2.48 for HIV and 3.94 for HCV. Between 1999 and 2003, about 3.4 million donations were tested by NAT, mainly in pools of 44 donations, in 12 of the 22 Spanish blood donation centres participating in the study. Eight anti-HCV negative and HCV-RNA positive donations were found, which represent an approximate yield of 1/420 000, versus a projected yield of 1/240 000 obtained from 1995-1997 data. The residual risks of
