Major companies are also focused on conducting clinical trials to assess the efficacy of blood systems
. For instance, in June 2018, Cerus Corporation presented its European Phase 3 study that evaluated the efficacy and safety of INTERCEPT-treated red blood cells (RBCs) in thalassemia major patients, at the 23rd Congress of European Hematology Association (EHA) in Stockholm, Sweden.
Cerus currently markets and sells the Intercept Blood System
for both platelets and plasma in the United States, Europe, the Commonwealth of Independent States, the Middle East and selected countries in other regions around the world.

The advancements improve VistaGen's ability to develop new stem cell-based bioassay systems and potentially improved cell therapies for human blood system
They focused on hematopoietic, or blood, stem cells because of their ability to completely reconstitute the blood system
, the capability that underlies successful bone marrow transplantation.
