INTRODUCTION: Spine surgeons are embracing advanced biologic technologies in an attempt to help millions of people achieve a better outcome in spine surgery. These new technologies may be complicated to understand, partly because the contribution of different types of cells has not been definitively identified. This paper describes the characteristics of the stem cells used in spine surgery, including their actions and possible complications. The description necessitates an overview of all studies to date on the use of stem cells in spine surgery, as well as other cells used in cellular therapy...

INTRODUCTION: Red Cell Exchange (RCE) is removal of a patient's red blood cells while replacing with donor red blood cells either manually or using automated systems. RCE is beneficial in patients with Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) either during sickling crisis or prior to major surgical procedures to bring down the sickling percentage as high sickling percentage during prolonged anaesthesia may lead to vaso-occlusive crisis. It is also employed in patients infested with malaria and babesiosis where parasitic index remain high despite medical management...

BACKGROUND: Extracorporeal photopheresis (ECP) is an effective cell therapy employed in several diseases, including graft versus host disease (GVHD) and organ rejection. When ECP is performed using an off-line technique, mononuclear cell (MNC) collection by leukapheresis is necessary for further manipulation (addition of 8-methoxypsoralen and ultraviolet A irradiation before reinfusion to the patient). We report the results of the first crossover equivalence study on yield and purity of MNCs collected from patients undergoing ECP with two different automated systems: MNC and CMNC (working with intermittent and continuous-flow collection, respectively), released by Terumo BCT...

INTRODUCTION: Despite platelets properties varies during storage, transfused platelets are included in blood clot in the same way as well as native. We assume that after transfusion the prevalence of platelets with changed activity lead to worse quality of blood clot in vivo. AIM: The aim was the in vitro study of platelet-dependent clot properties that are formed from some stored platelet concentrates (PCs). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-six PCs in autologous plasma and 24 PCs in platelet additive solution SSP+ (MacoPharma, France) (70vol...

Terumo BCT recently introduced a new system for mononuclear cell (MNC) collection that uses a Spectra Optia apheresis machine equipped with a redesigned disposable kit and software program (version 11.2). It allows for the continuous collection of MNCs, unlike the original Spectra Optia system (version 7.2), which included a chamber for two-step cell separation. The aim of this study was to compare the two apheresis systems in regard to specific performance parameters. A retrospective data analysis of 150 patients who had undergone peripheral blood stem cell collection between March of 2014 and May of 2015 at our institution was performed...

OBJECTIVES: Several variables possibly affecting collection of peripheral hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells (PBSC) were evaluated: type of apheresis machine (Amicus version 2.5, Baxter vs Cobe Spectra version 7.0, Terumo BCT), venous access (peripheral vein vs central venous catheter, i.g. CVC), and apheresis regimen (standard vs large volume leukapheresis, i.g. SVL vs LVL) with the objective to increase collection efficacy at the site. BACKGROUND: Peripheral blood represents the currently preferred source of hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells (HSCs) for transplantation...

Several plasma pathogen reduction technologies (PRT) are currently available. We evaluated three plasma PRT processes: Cerus Amotosalen (AM), Terumo BCT riboflavin (RB) and Macopharma methylene blue (MB). RB treatment resulted in the shortest overall processing time and in the smallest volume loss (1%) and MB treatment in the largest volume loss (8%). MB treatment retained the highest concentrations of factors II, VII, X, IX, Protein C, and Antithrombin and the AM products of factor V and XI. Each PRT process evaluated offered distinct advantages such as procedural simplicity and volume retention (RB) and overall plasma protein retention (MB)...

BACKGROUND: Red blood cell (RBC) depletion is a standard technique for preparation of ABO-incompatible bone marrow transplants (BMTs). Density centrifugation or apheresis are used successfully at clinical scale. The advent of a bone marrow (BM) processing module for the Spectra Optia (Terumo BCT) provided the initiative to formally compare our standard technology, the COBE2991 (Ficoll, manual, "C") with the Spectra Optia BMP (apheresis, semiautomatic, "O"), the Sepax II NeatCell (Ficoll, automatic, "S"), the Miltenyi CliniMACS Prodigy density gradient separation system (Ficoll, automatic, "P"), and manual Ficoll ("M")...

BACKGROUND: Arboviruses are an emerging threat to transfusion safety and rates of infection are likely to increase with the increased rainfall associated with climate change. Arboviral infections are common in Australia, where Ross River virus (RRV), Barmah Forest virus (BFV), and Murray Valley encephalitis virus (MVEV), among others, have the potential to cause disease in humans. The use of pathogen reduction technology (PRT) may be an alternative approach for blood services to manage the risk of arboviral transfusion transmission...
