Further observations on transfusion collapse curves in inbred rats.


Transfused allogeneic red blood cells (RBC) are very rapidly cleared from the host circulation in some strain combinations among inbred rats. The phenomenon, termed collapse curve clearance, an analogy with its human counterpart, is spleen-dependent. Allogeneic 51Cr-labeled red cells taken up by the spleen are retained for at least 6 weeks, and appear to… (More)
