Direct measurement of the risk of transfusion-transmitted infection (TTI) is practical and accurate only if the level of risk is high. Historically, studies that established frozen repositories of transfusion recipient and/or blood donor samples were important in establishing the risk of many TTI agents, including the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV). However, given the current very low risk of TTI, mathematical modelling is necessary to… CONTINUE READING
