Automated quantitative of A and B blood group substances (progress report) by Frank R Camp( Book )

2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An automated assay for the detection and quantitation of soluble blood group antigens is described. Variables such as reaction medium, type and amount of antibody employed, and reaction temperature were investigated and optimal conditions for increased sensitivity, specifity, and precision were determined. This AutoAnalyzer system utilizing modified hemagglutination manifolds and standardized with an NIH 500 microgram/ml standard has the ability to detect and/or quantitate blood group substance A and B at the microgram level. Limitations of the assay are discussed. Rationale behind the need for screening parenteral fluids, especially in the military population is advanced. (Author)
Dithionite Tube Test - A Rapid, Inexpensive Technique for the Detection of Hemoglobin S and Non-S Sickling Hemoglobin by Robert M Nalbandian( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An extensive field trial of the dithionite and the urea-dithionite tube tests indicates that the molecular theories of this method are supported by actual clinical tests. It is demonstrated that blood specimens appropriately collected at one site can be mailed at ambient temperatures for subsequent processing at a geographically remote laboratory without adverse effect on the accuracy or reliability of the test. The test, performed in 5 minutes, has a reagent cost of about 2 cents per determination. It is of considerable interest that these testing techniques will detect not only hemoglobins S and C (Harlem), a structural variant of S, but other non-S sickling hemoglobins such as Bart's, C (Georgetown), and perhaps Alexandra and rare hemoglobinopathies of low solubility such as Kings County and Stanleyville II. The dithionite and urea-dithionite tests, however, will provide rapid, accurate, reliable, and inexpensive screening for hemoglobin S. (Author)
Tissue Transplantation: The Universal Donor and Blood Group Antibodies by Frank R Camp( Book )

2 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Compatibility problems encountered in selecting the group O universal blood donor are reviewed and considered with other antigenic factors that could influence the immunological success of organ transplant. Varous vaccines and parenterals were assayed for A and B blood group substance. The effects of those injectables containing A and/or B substance and used in immunization programs with group O universal donors were studied. The observations by various workers that 15-30% of patients requiring renal transplantation have detectable lymphocytotoxic antibodies at the time of transplantation have resulted in a plea for avoidance of sensitization of the HL-A antigens. Consideration is given to reports that A and B antigens play a significant role in graft rejection and, in this respect, to the problem posed by the group O universal donor who receives vaccination products containing A and/or B substance.

Military Blood Banking 1941-1973. Lessons Learned Applicable to Civil Disasters and Other Considerations. (Tarawa: '6,000 Pints of Plasma Went Ashore with the Invading Troops and 4,000 Pints Came Back in the Veins of Wounded Marines.')( Book )

1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Military blood bank experiences are reviewed, especially the highlights encountered in the period 1941-1971 during World War II, Korean and Vietnam campaigns. The activation, including staff study and growth of the Blood Transfusion Division and The Blood Bank Center of the US Army Medical Research Laboratory, Fort Knox, Kentucky, is used as an example of planning for large-scale blood banking in the military (operations, training, and research) and, consequently, civil disaster blood bank planning. Large-scale blood bank operations in being at Fort Knox are illustrated and described. The growth and rapid expansion at Fort Knox paralleled the Vietnam campaign in both timing and activity.

The Detection of Sickle Cell Disease in Large Human Populations by an Automated Technique by Robert M Nalbandian( Book )

2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A total of 2,939 specimens was tested in this mixed population of both military and civilian individuals. Complete agreement among the results of all tests was obtained. An automated test for the determination of S hemoglobin can be performed at the rate of 60 per hour per AutoAnalyzer unit on 0.5 ml of whole blood with accuracy and reliability on large human populations. The successful field trials we have conducted may be regarded as a prototype model for the survey of metropolitan and military populations leading to case-finding of sickle cell disease. These cases may then be directed to medical genetic counseling and for possible treatment with urea. This is the first large-scale human population survey by specific automated techniques diagnostic for the molecular lesion of S hemoglobin. The automated mass survey technique is proven and awaits immediate application to appropriate segments of our national population. This diagnostic technique appropriately fielded can yield substantial contributions to the development of accurate statistics and to the control and eventual elimination of this lethal genetic affliction, sickle cell disease. The impediment to the widespread use of this proven technique is the high cost per test due to the use of the proprietary Sickledex solution. (Author)
Blood Preservation Solutions. XI. Raising the pH to Improve Hemoglobin Function( Book )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The effects of pH increase on hemoglobin function in a standard blood preservative solution during blood storage were assessed. Established methods were used for collecting and storing blood under blood banking conditions, assaying red cell 2,3-diphosphoglycerate (2,3-DPG)--a measure of hemoglobin function, and adenosine triphosphate (ATP)--a measure of red cell viability, as developed previously in this laboratory. Increasing the pH by small gradual increments of the commonly used preservative, acid-citrate-dextrose (ACD), results in a significant improvement in hemoglobin function during the first week of liquid storage at 4 C. Better maintenance of hemoglobin function, as determined by red cell 2,3-DPG concentrations, was observed with preservatives at higher pH levels. On the other hand, at the pH ranges employed in this study, ATP levels were not greatly different over the storage period considered. (Author)
Cargo coding developments in military blood bank logistics (progress report) by Dailey W McPeak( )

2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The findings in the study point out that the same degree of efficacy prevailing in good blood processing laboratories must also prevail in the minds of those who process the blood shipments at various shipping terminals. Specific problems are cited which can only be resolved by a coding system designed for shipment of blood, blood components, and human tissues for transplant procedures. A highly successful technic for packaging frozen components (fresh frozen plasma and cryoprecipitate), which are extremely fragile, is illustrated in a supplement to the report
Sickledex test for S hemoglobin : a critique by Robert M Nalbandian( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

When the reagents, reactions, and principles of the Sickledex test are understood in terms of modern molecular biology, it is believed that the Sickledex test can be an invaluable and productive tool in the discovery not only of hemoglobin S but other hemoglobinopathies as well, provided: (1) certain pitfalls of false positive and false negative reactions are recognized; (2) urea is used to modify the test; and (3) all positive Sickledex specimens are subsequently studied by hemoglobin electrophoresis technique.

Automated Mass Screening for S Hemoglobin: A Rational Method Derived from Molecular Information by Robert M Nalbandian( Book )

2 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Mass screening programs, coupled with genetic counseling, hold the promise of the elimination of sickle cell disease, leaving successive generations of black Americans progressively healthier. A rational screening method must be based on an understanding of the principles and limitations of currently used diagnostic tests and an analytical appreciation of the molecular pathology of hemoglobin S. Initial screening of the population at risk is undertaken by the automated dithionite test and only positive specimens are further studied by hemoglobin electrophoresis. This two-phase technique yields all necessary and pertinent data for diagnosis and genetic counseling at the lowest possible cost. The principle of the dithionite test is based on the easy detection of hydrophobic-bond-dependent nematic liquid crystal systems formed by hemoglobin S. The automated dithionite test can process 960 whole blood specimens per technician-day at a reagent cost of 2 cents each. An accelerated version, currently in extended field trials, processes 1,200 whole blood specimens per technican-day at a reagent cost of 0.1 to 2 cents each. (Modified author abstract)

Hepatitis Carriers among Soldiers Who Have Returned from Vietnam. Australia Antigen Studies( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Australia antigen or antibody was detected by immunodiffusion in 17 of 803 Vietnam returnees, but in none of 846 recruits. From this it is estimated that about 58,000 hepatitis carriers will have been added to the population by servicemen returning from Vietnam. A past history of hepatitis appeared to be no more common among those with Australia antigen (Au(1)) or antibody (anti-Au(1)) than in those in whom they were not found. It is recommended that all servicemen returning from Southeast Asia be tested to detect asymptomatic hepatitis carriers. (Author)
Forensic Aspects of Transfusion Reactions by Frank R Camp( Book )

2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A description of the problems and progress occurring in the realm of blood grouping, blood banking, and blood transfusion since 1940 is presented. Three areas of legal importance concerning transfusion reactions are defined: Patient and sample identification; Prevention, detection, and management of Incompatible hemolytic blood transfusion diseases; Document of test results and events in a Blood Transfusion Reaction Report. Specific legal statues and cases have resulted in the establishment of guidelines for blood banks. These guidelines, compiled by Professor Charles H. Randall, Jr., have been interrelated to main problem areas. A Blood Transfusion Reaction Report form is described as essential to the Hospital Transfusion Board, the Blood Bank Pathologist and laboratory staff, and other hospital departments and staff such as surgery, anesthesiology, and nursing.
