Is routine blood typing and screening necessary before primary total hip or knee arthroplasty in the 21st century?

Jorge H Nuñez, Lidia Mora, Carla Carbonell, Víctor Barro, Marcelo Casaccia, Marta Pérez, Joan Minguell,

<h4>Background</h4>Blood loss warranting transfusion is a relatively rare complication of major-joint arthroplasty procedures like total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and total hip arthroplasty (THA). Despite this rarity, pre-transfusion testing (blood typing, screening, and cross-matching) has become routine. We sought to determine if such routine testing is necessary for patients who undergo ...

Incorporating the entity of under-transfusion into hemovigilance monitoring: Documenting cases due to lack of inventory.

Srijana Rajbhandary, Chester Andrzejewski, Joy Fridey, Brie Stotler, Hamilton C Tsang, Salwa Hindawi, Opal Reddy, Mayrin Correa Medina, Anna Razatos, Shruti Narayan, Mark Fung,

<h4>Background</h4>Under-transfusion is an underreported entity within most hospitals and hemovigilance systems. While critical blood shortages are being reported more frequently, without incident codes to document instances of under-transfusion due to lack of inventory, estimating its impact on patient care as it relates to hemotherapy (HT) has hampered our ability to ...

Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency is more prevalent in Duffy-null red blood cell transfusion in sickle cell disease.

Marianne E Yee, Richard O Francis, Naomi L C Luban, Kirk A Easley, Christopher M Lough, John D Roback, Cassandra D Josephson, Ross M Fasano,

<h4>Background</h4>Resistance to malaria infection may be conferred by erythrocyte genetic variations including glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency and lack of Duffy antigens. In red blood cell (RBC) transfusion, G6PD deficiency may shorten transfusion survival. Because Duffy-null units are commonly transfused in sickle cell disease (SCD) due to antigen matching protocols, we ... Read more >>

The transfusion service laboratory in virtual reality.

Hamilton C Tsang, Jessica Truong, Ryan J Morse, Rida A Hasan, Joshua A Lieberman,

Due to the global SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, in-person laboratory medicine clerkships were converted to distance learning. The remote clerkship format provided advantages of allowing participation of students from more locations and greater scheduling flexibility but provided new challenges of maintaining learner engagement and providing experiential content of the laboratory environment. Gamification ... Read more >>

COVID-19 and the impact on blood availability and transfusion practices in low- and middle-income countries.

Linda S Barnes, Arwa Z Al-Riyami, Tina S Ipe, Evan M Bloch, Cees Smit Sibinga, Quentin G Eichbaum,

<h4>Background/case studies</h4>The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic disrupted the global blood supply. Low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) already experienced blood supply deficits that preceded the pandemic. We sought to characterize the challenges experienced during the pandemic, and adaptations, such as COVID-19 convalescent plasma (CCP).<h4>Study design/methods</h4>A cross-sectional survey explored blood availability, ...

Clinical grade production of IL-15 stimulated NK cells for early infusion in adult AML patients undergoing haploidentical stem cell transplantation with post-transplant cyclophosphamide.

Eva Rubio-Azpeitia, Ana Maria Pérez-Corral, Nieves Dorado-Herrero, Silvia Monsalvo, Gonzalo Pérez-Balsera, Maria Eugenia Fernández-Santos, Mi Kwon, Gillen Oarbeascoa, Mariana Bastos-Oreiro, Carmen Falero, Cristina Pascual Izquierdo, Cristina Muñoz-Martínez, Antonio Pérez-Martínez, José Luis Diez-Martin, Javier Anguita,

<h4>Background</h4>Allogeneic stem cell transplantation is the treatment of choice for acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients. Unmanipulated haploidentical transplantation (Haplo-HSCT) is commonly used for those AML patients who need a timely transplant and do not have a suitable matched donor, but relapse rates are still high, and improvements are needed. Adoptive ... Read more >>

Time from apheresis platelet donation to cold storage: Evaluation of platelet quality and bacterial growth.

Bethany L Brown, Stephen J Wagner, C Anne Hapip, Erin Fischer, Todd M Getz, Dedeene Thompson-Montgomery, Annette Turgeon,

<h4>Background</h4>Cold storage reduces posttransfusion survival of platelets; however, it can improve platelet activation, lower risk of bacterial contamination, and extend shelf-life compared to room temperature (RT) storage. To facilitate large-scale availability, manufacturing process optimization is needed, including understanding the impact of variables on platelet potency and safety. Short time requirements ...

Prediction of fetal blood group antigens from maternal plasma using Ion AmpliSeq HD technology.

Agnieszka Orzińska, Anna Kluska, Aneta Balabas, Magdalena Piatkowska, Maria Kulecka, Jerzy Ostrowski, Michal Mikula, Marzena Dębska, Małgorzata Uhrynowska, Katarzyna Guz,

<h4>Background</h4>Fetal blood group (BG) and platelet (HPA) antigens may trigger maternal immunization, causing a fetal disease. Noninvasive prenatal diagnostics (NIPT) predicts fetal genotype, identifying pregnancies with no risk. All current techniques detect fetal antigen alleles with unspecific background and without estimation of fetal fraction, thus new protocols for detection of ... Read more >>
