Fresh Versus Old Red Blood Cells for Transfusion
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Treatments||fresh transfusion, old transfusion|
|Collaborator||National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI)|
|Start date||December 2008|
|End date||March 2011|
|Trial size||22 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT01319552, AAAD3737, R01HL098014|
Packed red blood cell units destined for transfusion can be stored for up to 42 days prior to transfusion based on FDA guidelines. Recent studies suggest that certain patients transfused with blood stored for longer duration have poorer outcomes than patients transfused fresher blood. The investigators hypothesis is that the delivery of an immediate and substantial load of hemoglobin-associated iron from a stored unit of blood leads to changes that explain the differences in outcome between patients transfused old versus fresh blood. The investigators propose to test this hypothesis in humans by transfusing an individual's own blood, both fresh and after storage, and comparing levels of various outcome measures. A participant in this study will be asked to participate in a standard blood donation. The blood will be processed per standards at the investigators regional blood center (New York Blood Center) and then split into two equal units and shipped to Columbia University Medical Center for storage and transfusion. One unit will be transfused back into the same individual fresh (i.e. between 3-7 days after donation). The other unit will be transfused 42 days after donation. Blood samples will be drawn before, during, and after transfusion to measure levels of various analytes.
