BACKGROUND Granulocyte collection relies on the use of a red cell-sedimenting agent and is influenced by poorly defined intrinsic donor characteristics. The donor's baseline red cell (erythrocyte) sedimentation rate (ESR), a readily measurable intrinsic donor variable, may influence the effectiveness of red cell-sedimenting agents and affect the granulocyte yield. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS The in vitro and in vivo effects of 6-percent hydroxyethyl starch on the donor ESR were prospectively… CONTINUE READING
