We studied the in vivo recovery, lifespan, and hemostatic effectiveness of CPDA-1 platelet concentrates stored for up to 72 hours at 4 C. A total of 120 CPDA-1 concentrates containing an average (+/- 1 S.D.) of 6.6 +/- 2.0 x 10(10) platelets were prepared. The pH of the units following storage at 4 C was 6.8 +/- 0.2; no unit had a pH below 6.3. Autologous(More)
Of 160 patients with onset of diabetes at or after 30 years of age, the 84 with no evidence prevalences of HLA-A1 and B8 when compared with the 76 with retinal complications or with the 282 healthy blood donors. In addition, in 90 patients with onset of diabetes before age 30 years, we could confirm the reported significant increase of HLA-B8 and decrease(More)
