Recent animal studies suggest that transfusion of plasma from young donors reverses age‐related neurologic and cardiac changes in older recipients. Associations between age of blood product donors and corresponding outcomes in recipients have not been studied in humans. Therefore, our primary objective was to examine this relationship between donor age and recipient outcomes among patients that received plasma during and after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery. 
Association between Blood Donor Demographics and Post-Injury Multiple Organ Failure after Polytrauma.
Blood components donor sex, but not age, may be an important factor associated with post-injury MOF, and these findings will help guide future risk mitigation strategies specific to blood donor demographics.

The association of blood donor age and sex with recipient survival after red blood cell (RBC) transfusion is reported, and particularly the primary exposure that transfused RBCs from youngerdonors are associated with an increasedmortality risk is found, are hardly expected or intuitive.
The contribution and potential of older blood donors in Asia Pacific regions
To investigate the blood supply contribution of older donors in five Asia Pacific regions, a database of more than 100,000 people over the age of 60 was constructed to identify the most vulnerable groups.


A randomized controlled trial oftransfusion‐related acute lung injury: is plasma from multiparous blood donors dangerous?
The effects of plasma from multiparous donors with those of plasmafrom donors with no history of transfusion or pregnancy (control plasma) are compared in a prospective, randomized, double‐blind, crossover study.

Thrombomodulin Gene Variants Are Associated With Increased Mortality After Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery in Replicated Analyses
In 2 independent cardiac surgery cohorts, linked common allelic variants in the THBD gene are independently associated with increased long-term mortality risk after CABG and significantly improve the classification ability of traditional postoperative mortality prediction models.

The leading cause of transfusion-related morbidity and mortality in the United States is transfusion-related acute lung injury (TRALI). Diagnostic criteria for TRALI have recently been developed and
Genome-wide association study of acute kidney injury after coronary bypass graft surgery identifies susceptibility loci
Through an unbiased GWAS approach, this study found two new loci associated with post-CABG AKI providing new insights into the pathogenesis of perioperative AKI.
Prolonged storage of packed red blood cells for blood transfusion.
This Cochrane Review provides no evidence to support or reject the use of packed red blood cells for blood transfusion which have been stored for ≥ 21 days ('prolonged' or 'older') compared with those stored for <21 days ('fresh').
Detection, Evaluation, and Management of Anemia in the Elective Surgical Patient
A panel of physicians was convened to develop a clinical care pathway for anemia management in the preoperative surgical setting, and found that the identification and evaluation of anemia in this setting will assist in expedited diagnosis and treatment of underlying comorbidities and will improve patient outcomes.
