Improving White Blood Cell Collection From Healthy Donors

Bacterial and fungal infections in neutropenic patients or in patients with inherited disorders of neutrophil function continue to cause substantial morbidity and mortality. In particular, fungal infections are an increasingly important cause of death in patients receiving aggressive chemotherapy, in patients undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), in patients with ...


Rejuvenated RBC and VO2 Max in Healthy Subjects

VISIT A (Day 0 - Screening) Written informed consent will be obtained from subjects who respond to an IRB-approved advertisement/flyer and fulfill eligibility requirements. The following video will help explain the study: Individuals who respond to an IRB approved advertisement/flyer (uploaded to eIRB) will be given information about the ...


HEMOglobin Transfusion Threshold in Traumatic Brain Injury OptimizatioN: The HEMOTION Trial

Most trauma deaths are related to traumatic brain injury (TBI). Although the management of patients has improved, mortality remains unacceptably high, and half of survivors of moderate and severe TBI are left with major functional impairment. Current management guidelines are based on limited evidence and practice is highly variable. Most ...

Phase N/A

Study on Patient Blood Management in Haematological Patients

This study is set up as a first step of implementing patient blood management (PBM) in this hospital. PBM is an evidence-based, multidisciplinary approach to optimizing the care of patients who might need transfusion. Not only in pre/per/postoperative setting but also in haematology PBM guidelines can be implemented. Examples are: ...

Phase N/A

MRI Screening for Patients With Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) Who Have Received Multiple Red Blood Cell Transfusions

A known risk of red blood cell transfusions is that it puts excess iron into the patient's body. Researchers are continually seeking the most effective method of measuring iron concentration. The purpose of this study is to determine how much iron has been deposited in a patient's heart and liver ...

Phase N/A

Use of Pediatric Size Phlebotomy Tubes in Adult Critically Ill Patients to Reduce Red Blood Cell Transfusions

This study will evaluate the hypothesis that the use of pediatric size phlebotomy tubes reduces RBC transfusions in adult ICU patients compared with the use of adult size tubes.

Phase N/A

Irradiated Blood Versus Non Irradiated Blood Transfusions in Craniosynostosis Repair

Patients between the ages of 2 to 6 months of age and undergo a sagittal synostosis repair will split into two groups to participate in a prospective pilot study. The purpose of this study is to examine the extracellular potassium levels in patients who receive irradiated blood versus non-irradiated blood. ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Deferiprone on Oxidative-Stress and Iron-Overload in Low Risk Transfusion-Dependent MDS Patients

INTRODUCTION 1.1 Background Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) is characterized by deficiencies in blood cell production that can lead to anemia, which may necessitate regular transfusions of red blood cells (RBCs) as supportive therapy. While this treatment can be life-saving, since the body has no natural means of removing the excess iron ...


Red Blood Cell Transfusion Thresholds and QOL in MDS

Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are bone marrow malignancies characterized by poor bone marrow function that may progress to acute myeloid leukemia. Many patients become red blood cell transfusion-dependent. Transfusion dependence is associated with inferior quality of life (QOL). However, the relationship between the degree of anemia and QOL is less clear. ...

Phase N/A

TRansfusion Strategies in Acute Brain INjured Patients

Although blood transfusions can be lifesaving in severe hemorrhage, they can also have potential complications. As anemia has also been associated with poor outcomes in critically ill patients, determining an optimal transfusion trigger is a real challenge for clinicians. This is even more important in patients with acute brain injury ...
