Impact of recipient ABH secretor status on outcome in minor ABO-incompatible hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
Transfusion
PUBLISHED: 03-14-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The impact of ABO incompatibility on hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) outcome is controversial. As ABH substances are expressed on tissues and secreted in body fluids, they could drive an immune response in minor ABO-incompatible HSCT. The aim of the study was to investigate the prognostic role of the recipients' ABH secretor status.

Platelet transfusion: basic aspects.

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Platelet transfusions have been shown to prevent major haemorrhage and improve survival in thrombocytopenic patients. Since then, advances in the preparation of platelet components, including the introduction of pathogen reduction techniques, have been achieved. The number of transfused platelet components is still growing owing to the increasing number of patients treated for haemato-oncological diseases. Additionally, indications have been extended, for example to patients with drug-induced platelet dysfunction. This review focuses on current platelet component production and storage techniques, including pathogen reduction, indications for platelet transfusion and safety issues including alloimmunisation and management of platelet refractoriness.

Role of donor and recipient sex in platelet transfusion.

Hide Abstract
BACKGROUND: H-Y proteins are ubiquitously expressed Y chromosome-encoded minor histocompatibility antigens, which are relevant in the transplantation of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCT) and solid organs. No studies have so far analyzed whether H-Y incompatibility influences the outcome of platelet (PLT) transfusion. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS: We studied the effect of donor and recipient sex on outcome of 9038 single-donor PLT transfusions. RESULTS: Using standard corrected count increment or percent PLT recovery (PPR) calculations, male patients showed inferior recovery rates, irrespective of donor sex. Using an adjusted PPR, which takes into account differences in blood volume between males and females, neither donor nor recipient sex played any role in PLT recovery after transfusion. Similarly, the time to next PLT transfusion was unaffected by both donor and recipient sex. In a subgroup analysis of patients with graft-versus-host disease after allogeneic HSCT, male recipients of a female allograft-which may carry anti-H-Y T cells and antibodies-had significantly lower time to next PLT transfusion. However, this occurred after both male donor and female donor PLT transfusions, arguing against an involvement of alloreactivity against H-Y antigens on PLTs. CONCLUSION: This large analysis found no evidence that donor-recipient sex matching influences the outcome of PLT transfusion.

Prognostic value of red blood cell parameters and ferritin in predicting deferral due to low hemoglobin in whole blood donors.

Hide Abstract
Risk factors for deferral from red blood cell (RBC) donation due to low hemoglobin are not well defined. We analyzed in a large cohort of returning donors the prognostic value of RBC parameters and serum ferritin regarding low hemoglobin levels at the subsequent visit. Between 2004 and 2009, RBC indices and serum ferritin were recorded in 45,533 visits by 7,994 donors. In 689 instances, donation was deferred at the subsequent visit due to low hemoglobin levels (<123 g/l for female donors, <133 g/l for male donors). Pre-donation hemoglobin at the current visit correlated best with hemoglobin at the subsequent visit (R (2)?=?0.63), whereas other RBC indices and serum ferritin correlated only poorly (R (2)???0.15). Similar results were obtained in ROC curve analysis and in multivariable binary logistic regression. A pre-donation hemoglobin within 5 g/l from the deferral threshold (<128 g/l for female, <138 g/l for male donors) predicted below-threshold hemoglobin levels at the subsequent visit with a sensitivity of 52% and a specificity of 94%. In conclusion, pre-donation hemoglobin is a useful marker identifying donors at risk of developing low hemoglobin levels. Diagnostic and therapeutic interventions should be aimed at donors presenting with hemoglobin levels near the threshold of donor deferral.

Iron store deficiency is a common side effect of whole blood donation. Early recognition and reversal of excessive iron loss may avoid symptomatic iron store depletion in blood donors and reduce volunteer loss due to iron deficiency (ID) anemia.

The replication of BK virus (BKV) and JC virus (JCV) is linked to polyomavirus-associated nephropathy, hemorrhagic cystitis, and multifocal leukoencephalopathy in immunodeficient patients, but the behavior of these viruses in immunocompetent individuals has hardly been characterized.

Comparison of transfusion efficacy of amotosalen-based pathogen-reduced platelet components and gamma-irradiated platelet components.
Transfusion
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Trials of transfusions of platelets (PLTs) treated with amotosalen-based pathogen reduction (PR) showed lower corrected count increments (CCIs) compared to conventional PLT components (PCs). However, PR-PLTs and conventional PCs often differed in various factors besides PR. We compared transfusion efficacy of single-donor apheresis PCs treated with PR or gamma irradiation.

Quantity of HLA-C surface expression and licensing of KIR2DL+ natural killer cells.
Immunogenetics
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Natural killer (NK) cells require interaction of inhibitory surface receptors with human leukocyte antigen (HLA) ligands during development to acquire functional competence in a process termed "licensing." The quantity of HLA required for this process is unknown. Two polymorphisms affecting HLA-C surface expression (rs9264942 and rs67384697) have recently been identified, and shown to influence progression of HIV infection. We typed a cohort of healthy donors for the two HLA-C-related polymorphisms, KIR2DL1 and KIR2DL3, and their respective HLA-C ligands and analyzed how HLA ligands influenced licensing status of killer cell immunoglobulin-like receptor (KIR)+ NK cells in terms of degranulation and cytokine production in response to HLA-deficient target cells. The presence of respective HLA class I ligands increased the function of KIR2DL1+ and KIR2DL3+ NK cells in a dose-dependent manner. In contrast, neither of the HLA-C-related polymorphisms nor the quantity of cell surface HLA-C had any significant effect on NK cell function. Interestingly, HLA-Cw7-an HLA-C allele with low surface expression-licensed KIR2DL3+ NK cells more strongly than any other KIR2DL3 ligand. The quantity of cell surface HLA-C does not appear to influence licensing of NK cells, and the HLA-C-related polymorphisms presumably influence HIV progression through factors unrelated to NK cell education.

Specialized centers claim a need for blood component production independent from the general blood transfusion services. We performed a prospective change control analysis of the transfer of platelet (PLT) production for hematological patients at the University Hospital Basel from the Department of Hematology to the Blood Transfusion Centre, Swiss Red Cross, Basel in February 2006. We wanted to demonstrate that neither quality nor transfusion outcome was affected.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
