  1. 1. Preoperative deposit of autologous blood. Effects on inflammatory mediators

    Author : Monica Hyllner; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : allogeneic; autologous; complement; cytokines; blood storage; erythropoiesis; hysterectomy; plasma; prestorage leucocyte filtration; rHuEPO; whole blood.;

    Abstract : Blood contains complex cascade systems and substances that can be activated during the processing of blood components and storage. Allogeneic blood, i.e. blood from someone else, is normally separated into components before storage and transfusion, while autologous blood (the patient s own blood) often is used as whole blood.

  2. 2. Towards a detailed understanding of the red blood cell storage lesion : and its consequences for in vivo survival following transfusion

    Author : Andreas Hult; Christer Malm; Per-Arne Oldenborg; Martin L. Olsson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Red blood cell; erythrocyte; transfusion; macrophage; phagocytosis; storage lesion; eryptosis; Class A scavenger receptor; transfusion medicine; transfusionsmedicin;

    Abstract : Red blood cells (RBCs) are vital for oxygen delivery to tissues and constitute the vast majority of all cells in blood. After leaving the red bone marrow as mature cells, RBCs have a lifespan of approximately 120 days before they are removed from the circulation by macrophages, mainly in the spleen and liver.

    Abstract : Phosphatidylethanol (PEth) is an abnormal phospholipid formed exclusively by the action of phospholipase D (PLD) in the presence of ethanol. The degradation of PEth is slow and due to its accumulation in some cells the possibility to use PEth as marker of ethanol intake has been proposed. READ MORE
