Transfusion medicine

Transfusion medicine

  • Rh disease
    Rh disease (also known as rhesus isoimmunisation, Rh (D) disease, rhesus incompatibility, rhesus disease, RhD hemolytic disease of the newborn, rhesus D hemolytic disease of the newborn or RhD HDN) is a type of hemolytic disease of the newborn (HDN).
  • Autotransplantation
    Autotransplantation is the transplantation of organs, tissues, or even particular proteins from one part of the body to another in the same person (auto- = "self-").
  • Blood transfusion
    Blood transfusion is generally the process of receiving blood or blood products into one's circulation intravenously.
  • Blood type
    A blood type (also called a blood group) is a classification of blood based on the presence and absence of antibodies and also based on the presence or absence of inherited antigenic substances on the surface of red blood cells (RBCs).
  • Jehovah's Witnesses and blood transfusions
    Jehovah's Witnesses believe that the Bible prohibits ingesting blood and that Christians should not accept blood transfusions or donate or store their own blood for transfusion.
  • Apheresis
    Apheresis (ἀφαίρεσις (aphairesis, "a taking away")) is a medical technology in which the blood of a person is passed through an apparatus that separates out one particular constituent and returns the remainder to the circulation.
  • Hemolytic disease of the newborn
    Hemolytic disease of the newborn, also known as hemolytic disease of the fetus and newborn, HDN, HDFN, or erythroblastosis fetalis, is an alloimmune condition that develops in a fetus, when the IgG molecules (one of the five main types of antibodies) produced by the mother pass through the placenta.
  • J. G. Jolly
    Dr. J. G. Jolly (born 1 October 1926) is an Indian physician and Emeritus Professor of the Department of Transfusion Medicine at the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh, India.
  • Platelet
    Platelets, also called thrombocytes (thromb- + -cyte, "blood clot cell"), are a component of blood whose function (along with the coagulation factors) is to stop bleeding by clumping and clotting blood vessel injuries.
  • Cord Blood Registry
    Cord Blood Registry is a biotechnology company headquartered in San Bruno, California, founded in 1992 by father and daughter Tom Moore and Wendy Grant.
  • Hemolytic disease of the newborn (ABO)
    In ABO hemolytic disease of the newborn (also known as ABO HDN) maternal IgG antibodies with specificity for the ABO blood group system pass through the placenta to the fetal circulation where they can cause hemolysis of fetal red blood cells which can lead to fetal anemia and HDN.
  • Hemolytic disease of the newborn (anti-RhE)
    Hemolytic disease of the newborn (anti-RhE) is caused by the anti-RhE antibody of the Rh blood group system.
  • Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center
    Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center is an independent, nonprofit blood center that gathers blood through donations and provides blood, blood components and related services.
  • Northfield Laboratories
    Northfield Laboratories Inc.
  • AABB
    The AABB is a United States-based professional body and standards organization that was founded in 1947 as the American Association of Blood Banks.
  • Band 3
    Band 3 anion transport protein, also known as anion exchanger 1 (AE1) or band 3 or solute carrier family 4 member 1 (SLC4A1), is a protein that is encoded by the SLC4A1 gene in humans.
  • Arnault Tzanck
    Arnault Tzanck (1886–1954) was a French physician and a pioneer of blood transfusion.
  • Hemolytic disease of the newborn (anti-Kell)
    Hemolytic disease of the newborn (anti-Kell1) is the third most common cause of severe hemolytic disease of the newborn (HDN) after Rh disease and ABO incompatibility.
  • Hemolytic disease of the newborn (anti-Rhc)
    Hemolytic disease of the newborn (anti-Rhc) can range from a mild to a severe disease.
  • Hemoperfusion
    Hemoperfusion or haemoperfusion (see spelling differences) is a method of filtering the blood extracorporeally (that is, outside the body) to remove a toxin.
  • Rho(D) immune globulin
    Rho(D) immune globulin or Rh0(D) immune globulin (letter o and digit zero are both widely attested; more at Rh blood group system - Rh nomenclature) is a medicine given by intramuscular injection that is used to prevent the immunological condition known as Rh disease (or hemolytic disease of newborn).
  • Complement component 4
    Complement component 4 (C4), in humans, is a protein involved in the intricate complement system, originating from the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) system.
  • Transfusion transmitted infection
    A Transfusion transmitted infection (TTI) is a virus, parasite, or other potential pathogen that can be transmitted in donated blood through a transfusion to a recipient.
