Blood Transfusions Clinical Trials

A listing of Blood Transfusions medical research trials actively recruiting patient volunteers. Search for closest city to find more detailed information on a research study in your area.


Found (25) clinical trials

The purpose of this study is to determine at what blood count patients should be given a transfusion. During this trial we will be assessing red blood cell transfusion strategies that are currently used in clinical practice and important medical events. Red blood cells are a limited and expensive medical ...


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. ...

PICU Transfusion Study: Harmful Effects of Red Blood Cell Transfusions

Transfusions of red blood cells (RBCs) stored for longer durations are associated with adverse effects in hospitalized patients. During storage, RBCs undergo cumulative changes that reduce their survival in vivo, and have been associated with impairment in oxygen transport and adverse outcomes. Transfusion of older RBCs results in increased NTBI ...

The INFUSE Trial - Intervening With Platelet Transfusions in Sepsis

Sepsis is life-threatening and dysregulated response to infection that results in endothelial activation and dysfunction that leads to systemic microvascular leak and multiple-organ failure. Emerging evidence indicates that platelets occupy a central role in maintaining the balance between vascular health and the response to environmental changes and vascular injury. Platelets ...

R-FACT Study:Risk Factors for Alloimmunization After Red Blood Cell Transfusions

Introduction: Individuals exposed to red blood cell (RBC) alloantigens through transfusion, pregnancy, or transplantation may produce antibodies against the alloantigens expressed by RBCs. Although the incidence of these events is debated and ranges between percentages of 1-6% in single transfused patients and up to 30 % in poly-transfused patients (e.g. ...

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 ...


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 ...

Reversal of the Antiplatelet Effects of Ticagrelor in Combination With Aspirin Using Normal Platelets

Ticagrelor is one of three commercially available antiplatelet adenosine diphosphate (ADP) antagonists (the other two are clopidogrel and prasugrel). They exert their antiplatelet effects by binding to P2Y12 receptors on the platelet surface. Ticagrelor is used in combination with aspirin to prevent and treat thrombosis in patients with acute coronary ...

Cost-Utility Analysis of Management of Peri Operative Haemorrhage Following Cardiac Surgery With Cardiopulmonary Bypass

The research is a real life, prospective, single blinded stepped wedge randomized study. Inclusion after informed consent of adult patient having cardio-vascular surgical procedure using cardiopulmonary bypass and meeting inclusion criterion "bleeding". After meeting inclusion criterion patients are managed either using conventional blood coagulation tests or using thrombo-elastometry POC test ...

Cost-effectiveness and Cost-utility of Liberal vs Restrictive Red Blood Cell Transfusion Strategies in Patients With Acute Myocardial Infarction and Anaemia.

Anemia is frequent in patients with myocardial infarction (MI). The antiplatelet and anticoagulant agents used for MI treatment increase the risk of bleeding, which in turn increases the risk of ischemia and mortality. Anemia is an independent predictor of cardiac events in this setting. In the "FAST-MI 2010" nationwide registry, ...
