CONTEXT: Dengue fever is the most prevalent mosquito-borne viral disease in humans. Platelet indices (PIs) are given by the cell counters but are often not reported which is possibly due to under-recognition of the utility of these parameters. AIMS: This study aimed to compare PIs in patients with dengue fever to assess their role in the outcome such as hospital stay and platelet transfusion requirements. SETTINGS AND DESIGN: Prospective observational study in a tertiary care center, Thrissur, Kerala...

The P blood group system was introduced in 1927 by Landsteiner and Levine. About 75% of the population possesses P1 phenotype. P2 simply implies P1 negative and there is no P2 antigen. Individuals with P2 may have anti-P1 antibodies in there serum are cold-reacting antibodies which are clinically insignificant and occasionally active at 20°C or higher temperatures. However, in certain cases, anti-P1 is clinically significant and may cause acute intravascular hemolytic transfusion reactions. Our case report confirms the complexity and difficulty in the diagnosis of anti-P1...

Among the blood counts, platelet count is most often reported with inconsistency. Many of the analyzers work on electrical impedance principle for red blood cell (RBC) and platelet counting. However, with this technology, factors such as fragmented RBCs, microcytes, cytoplasmic fragments of leukemic cells, lipid particles, fungal yeast forms, and bacteria are known to interfere with platelet count and give spuriously elevated platelet counts. A 72-year-old male was admitted for the treatment of dengue infection who had serial platelet count monitoring...

PURPOSE: Assessment of residual white blood cell (rWBC) count is vital to ascertain the quality of leukodepleted (LD) blood components. Automated cell analyzers lack the sensitivity for the assessment of very few leukocytes as found in LD blood components. Flow Cytometry (FC) based methods and Nageotte hemocytometer are the most commonly used techniques for this purpose. The objective of this study was to compare the use of Nageotte hemocytometer and FC for quality control of LD red blood cell units...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: High-yield plateletpheresis donations can reduce donor exposure and be economically beneficial as well. However, obtaining a high-yield plateletpheresis from a maximum number of donors with low basal platelet count and its effect on postdonation platelet count of donors undergoing high-yield plateletpheresis has been a matter of concern. This study aimed to assess the feasibility of making high-yield platelet donation as a routine practice. METHODS: It was a retrospective observational study to determine the effect of high-yield plateletpheresis on donor reactions, efficacy, and quality parameters...

Sreethu Chand, R Amita, Debasish Gupta
The World Health Organization and National Blood Transfusion Council, Government of India, advocate regular repeat nonremunerated voluntary blood donors as the safest of all donors to meet the blood requirements of the country. Recruitment and retention of individuals as voluntary blood donors requires the adoption of novel and varied strategies protecting the voluntary nonremunerated nature of blood donation. In this review article, we are focusing on how addressing the donor suggestions and concerns has created a win-win situation for blood donors and blood transfusion services...

A countrywide study over the eras indicates overuse of blood transfusion can have considerable risks to patients accompanied by significant costs of blood transfusion for patients, hospitals, and health-care systems. Besides, more than 30% of the world's population is anemic. Typically, blood transfusion helps continue suitable oxygen transfer in anemia, i.e., more and more documented as a threatening factor with several adverse outcomes including long hospitalization, morbidity, and mortality. Transplantation of allogeneic blood is thus like a two-edged sword...

We report the clinical outcome of an emergency ABO incompatible-liver transplantation (LT) for an 8-year-old child with Wilson's disease-induced acute liver failure. The pretransplant anti-A antibody titer was 1:64, and hence he underwent three cycles of conventional plasma exchange as pretransplant liver supportive treatment for deranged coagulopathy and liver function followed by one cycle of immunoadsorption (IA) prior to LT. The posttransplant immunosuppression consisted of rituximab, tacrolimus, mycophenolate mofetil, and corticosteroid...

ABO antibodies are naturally occurring antibodies. The ABO antibodies found in the Group O individuals include anti-A and anti-B. In Group O individuals, it tends to be predominantly immunoglobulins G (IgG), although immunoglobulins M and IgA components are also present. Infants of Group O mothers are at higher risk for hemolytic disease of the fetus and new-born than those born to mothers with Group A or B because IgG readily cross the placenta. At the same time, abnormal high concentration of ABO antibody in mother can lead to destruction of platelets in neonates and leads to development of neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia as human platelets carry detectable quantities of A and B blood group antigens on their surface...

Immune-mediated diseases wherein immune complex-mediated injury is predominant; plasma exchange remains a therapeutic option for vasculitis. Hepatitis B virus-associated polyarteritis nodosa (HBV-PAN) wherein immunosuppressants can be contraindicated, plasma exchanges have a proven role when combined with antiviral therapy. Plasma exchange by hastening the clearance of immune complexes is beneficial in acute organ dysfunction. A 25-year-old male presented with complaints of generalized weakness, tingling numbness and weakness of extremities, joint pain, weight loss, and rashes over arms and legs for 2 months...
