Blood transfusion study: Less is more
A new study suggests that blood transfusions for hospitalized cardiac patients should be a last resort because they double the risk of infection and increase by four times the risk of death. View News Article (2009-08-06)


POSSIBLE EXPLANATION FOR FEVER AFTER PLATELET TRANSFUSION
A preliminary study published in this week's issue of THE LANCET suggests a possible explanation for the biological process responsible for inducing fever and related symptoms after the transfusion of blood platelets. Millions of platelet transfusions are done every year, and febrile (fever) reactions occur in around a third of cases. Most reactions are mild, but occasionally life-threatening...

Less blood needed post-surgery, says NEJM study
Patients need less blood after surgery than is widely thought. A new study comparing two plans for giving blood transfusions following surgery showed no ill effects from postponing transfusion until patients develop signs of anemia or their hemoglobin concentration falls below 8 g/dL. View News Article (2011-12-16)


Study finds that red blood cell transfusion decreases fatigue in women with acute postpartum anemia
In a study to be presented today at the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine's annual meeting, The Pregnancy Meeting ™, in Dallas, Texas, researchers will report findings that show that in women with acute postpartum anemia, due to excessive blood loss during delivery, red blood cell transfusion led to a statistically significant decrease in physical fatigue. While excessive blood loss... View News Article (2012-02-10)


Kenyan Study Could Help Other African Countries Improve Hiv Blood-transfusion Strategies (p 657)
A 1994 study which highlighted the problem of HIV-1 transmission from blood-transfusion programmes in Kenya-and resulted in positive government action-could help other African countries develop safer blood-transfusion strategies. Little support for blood-safety programmes has been provided to less-developed countries over the past decade. The Kenya Ministry of Health did a collaborative... View News Article (2001-08-22)


Study confirms vCJD could be transmitted by blood transfusion
The findings underline the importance of precautions against vCJD transmission, such as the Government decision in 2004 to ban blood donations from anyone who had received a blood transfusion since 1980. View News Article (2008-08-29)


Blood transfusion poses CJD risk (pp 411, 417, 422)
Two studies in this week's issue of THE LANCET highlight the public-health implications of blood transfusion as a possible route for infection by the prion protein responsible for variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD). The death from vCJD of an individual in the UK who had previously received a blood transfusion from a donor who went on to have vCJD was announced on December 17, 2003. Robert...
