    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.

  3. 3. Carbon monoxide in biological systems An experimental and clinical study

    University dissertation from Umeå : Kirurgisk och perioperativ vetenskap

    Abstract : Background: Carbon monoxide (CO) is a toxic gas, but it is also produced endogenously when haem is degraded. When produced in vivo, CO is believed to have positive biological effects. For example it activates the production of cyclic guanosine mono-phosphate and causes vasodilatation. READ MORE

  4. 4. Blood donors´long-term health : Implications for transfusion safety

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics

    Author : Gustaf Edgren; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Epidemiology; hemovigilance; neoplasms; mortality; blood donors; blood transfusion; transfusion safety;

    Abstract : Continuous attention to transfusion safety through improvement of disease screening and donor selection has succeeded in reducing the risks of transfusion transmitted disease to practically immeasurable levels. Despite this progress, surprisingly little is known about disease occurrence among blood donors and whether there are possible long-term effects of repeated whole-blood or apheresis donation.

    Abstract : Type 1 diabetes mellitus affects millions of people worldwide. Islet transplantation is a minimal invasive surgical procedure that restores euglycemia and halts the progression of diabetic complications. However, despite transplantation of islets from multiple donors most patients reverse to hyperglycemia within five years. READ MORE
