Study suggests maximum blood storage limit of 5 weeks for transfusions

AABB SmartBrief | Jan 20, 2017

Columbia University Medical Center researchers found in a 60-person randomized trial that volunteers receiving transfusions of red blood cells stored for six weeks could not adequately metabolize damaged cells, resulting in increased iron levels in the blood. Based on the findings, the authors of the study in the Journal of Clinical Investigation recommended that the FDA lower the storage limit for blood to five weeks from the current standard of six weeks when adequate supplies are available. iTech Post (01/10) Deccan Chronicle (India) (01/11)
