The ability to harvest large amounts of hematopoietic stem cells from blood would eliminate the more difficult approach of bone marrow harvest. Unfortunately, concentration of stem cells in the blood compartment is less than 1% of their concentration in bone marrow. Attempts to increase harvest of blood stem cells, as assayed by granulocyte progenitor cells(More)
Little information is available about the effect of adenine and added glucose on stored platelets. Two new formulations, CPDA-2 and CPDA-3, contain 34 mg adenine per 63 ml preservative and extra glucose (1.75 and 2.0 times the glucose in standard CPD). We have studied the in vitro integrity of platelet concentrates stored in CPD, CPDA-1, CPDA-2, and CPDA-3(More)
Membranes from platelets obtained from normal human volunteers were isolated for evaluation of their glycoproteins. Values were measured in fresh and stored platelet concentrates at 72 and 96 hr (22 degrees +/- 2 degrees C). Polyacrylamide gels were used to separate the membrane glycoproteins. These were identified as GPI, GPII, GPIII, GPIV, GP77, and GP44.(More)
This paper describes a method for determining the number of marrow erythroid and neutrophil cells in which the cellularity of marrow sections was related to that of the total marrow by radioiron dilution. Tissue sections were prepared from methacrylate-embedded dog marrow biopsies, and neutrophils were identified by staining of their primary granules. After(More)
Extended storage of platelets can be achieved by cryopreservation. However, most cryopreservation techniques require extensive manipulation prior to administration, limiting their practicality. A simple cryopreservative system using glycerol and glucose as cryoprotectants would eliminate the need to wash the platelets after freezing, since neither of these(More)
