By studying the young cells, the investigators hope to identify the genes used in making a mature red blood cell
NeutroSpec offers the advantage of direct injection and in-vivo labeling of white blood cells
, whereas currently available white blood cell
labeling agents require a blood sample to be taken from the patient, processed by a nuclear pharmacy and then re-injected into the patient.
This is an advantage to busy donors who want to give two units of red blood cells

If physicians can also control human stem-cell growth, it may aid cancer patients whose blood cells
are obliterated by radiation or chemotherapy.
The study, presented today at the annual meeting of the AABB, found that a new filtration technology from Pall Corporation (NYSE: PLL) reduces infectious vCJD prions from red blood cell
concentrates, the most commonly transfused blood component.

substitute to have received FDA approval, underwent 34 animal trials as part of its FDA approval.
Paul's team also describes evidence that a protein that stimulates red blood cell

Cerus Corporation (NASDAQ:CERS) announced today the initiation of its Phase I clinical trial of the INTERCEPT red blood cell
system, a proprietary system designed to improve blood safety by inactivating blood-borne pathogens in donated red blood cells
Our studies to date indicate that Lisofylline results in accelerated blood cell
recovery through the regulation of a single therapeutic target -- PA," said Dr.
The clinical trial, however, found that patients with the higher red blood cell
counts had slightly higher death rates.
It was processed into red blood cell
samples that were designated either as test (filtered) or control (non-filtered) groups and then injected into healthy hamsters.

An analysis of 14 randomized clinical trials demonstrate that granulocyte colony-stimulating factors (G-CSFs) administered in the first and subsequent cycles of chemotherapy reduce the incidence of febrile neutropenia (low white blood cell
count with fever) and infection-related mortality in cancer patients.
