Immunosuppressive medication dosing errors are not unfrequent and may present a number of challenges to transplant clinicians. Tacrolimus (TAC) is a widely used immunosuppressant with a narrow therapeutic index and potential severe side effects, including neurotoxicity and kidney injury. We herein report a case of 60-year-old woman who underwent deceased-donor liver transplantation at our center and due to inadvertent TAC overexposure was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit because of severe neurologic impairment, kidney injury and arterial hypotension...

Chronic red blood cell transfusions remain an essential part of supportive treatment in patients with thalassaemia and sickle cell disease (SCD). Red blood cell (RBC) transfusions expose patients to the risk of developing antibodies: RBC alloimmunization occurs when the immune system meets foreign antigens. We created a register of extensively genotyped donors to achieve a better matched transfusion in order to reduce transfusion alloimmunization. Extended RBC antigen typing was determined and confirmed by molecular biology techniques using Human Erythrocyte Antigen (HEA) BeadChip (BioArray Solutions Ltd...

BACKGROUND: Therapeutic plasma exchange (TPE) is a generally accepted and frequently performed procedure for numerous therapeutic indications in adults. Slowly, TPE is also becoming more and more popular in the treatment of pediatric patients. Although, we know that TPE is safe in pediatric patients, the outcome of children treated with TPE is rarely reported. Furthermore, there are only general recommendations regarding the plasma replacement fluid for children and these are adopted from adults...

Bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome (BOS) is the main manifestation of pulmonary GVHD. It has often a dramatic and fast evolution and current treatment (change or increase in immunosuppression, macrolides and inhaled therapy) is poor with high mortality rates. In this scenario, extracorporeal photopheresis (ECP) bursts as a new immunomodulatory approach with a different philosophical purpose. In fact, available data show that ECP treatment is intended to delay the inflammatory process and consequently respiratory lung function decline, rather than reverse the damage itself...

Plasma is the liquid part of blood. It is estimated 21.6 million liters of plasma collect from Whole blood annually. From these plasma, 4.2 million liters transfuse, 8.1 million liters fractionate, 9.3 million liters waste. Nowadays, blood products and PDM (plasma derived medicine) consider as essential medicine in modern health care and transfusion medicine. Iranian blood transfusion organization as a non-profit organization was established in 1974 in order to centralize all blood transfusion activities from donor recruitment to distribution of blood components to hospitals...

The WAA apheresis registry was established in 2003 and an increasing number of centers have since then included their experience and data of their procedures. The registry now contains data of more than 74,000 apheresis procedures in more than 10,000 patients. This report shows that the indications for apheresis procedures are changing towards more oncological diagnoses and stem cell collections from patients and donors and less therapeutic apheresis procedures. In centers that continue to register, the total extent of apheresis procedures and patients treated have expanded during the latest years...

OBJECTIVES: One of the most important surgical issues applied in the treatment of pilonidal sinus disease is wound healing. The aim of this study was to investigate the possible effect of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) gel on accelerating wound healing in these patients. METHODS: In this randomized, controlled, parallel group clinical trial, 110 patients were randomly allocated into two parallel groups with the same size (controls and treatment arm) after meeting inclusion and exclusion criteria...

REVIEW

An apheresis registry is a part of each learned apheresis society. The interest in this is obvious, in terms of knowledge of the practice of apheresis, adverse events, and technical issues. However, because of the weight of data entry it could never be exhaustive and some data will be missing. While continuing our registry efforts and our efforts to match with other existing registries, we decided to extend the data collection to a medico-economic database that is available in France, the Programme de Médicalisation du Système d'Information (PMSI) that has covered reimbursement information for each public or private hospital since 2007...

REVIEW

Taking advantage of the "World Apheresis Association/Société Française d'Hémaphérèse" meeting held in Paris in April 2016, this article reviews the current knowledge on the mechanisms of action of intravenous immunoglobulins. Immunoglobulins are a plasma-derived drug, which have been initially used as a replacement therapy for patients with antibody deficiency. Since 1980 they have also been used for their anti-inflammatory and immunomodulating efficacy in auto-immune diseases. Herein, we review the requirements for their production and composition before giving a specific attention to their mechanisms of action including substitution and immunomodulation...
