BACKGROUND This study was designed to determine which in vitro assays would be most useful for studying the effects of cold storage on platelet concentrates and to establish an in vivo model for platelet recovery and survival. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS Paired, plasma-suspended, leucoreduced, buffy-coat-derived platelet concentrates were stored either at 22 or 4 degrees C. Prior to storage and after 18 h, 5 days and 7 days, samples were taken and various assays were performed. On day 6, in vivo… CONTINUE READING
