9. Diagram illustrating the mechanism of HLA alloimmunization due to leukocytes present in platelet transfusions. This evidence evolved from the observation that platelet reactions were strongly dependent on the age of the platelets, and the observation that poststorage leukoreduction was effective for preventing most FNHTRs to red cells, but was often ineffective in preventing platelet-associated reactions (20,21). 1. Red Cell Reactions Most FNHTRs to red cells are the result of an antigen/antibody incompatibility.

Red Cell Reactions Most FNHTRs to red cells are the result of an antigen/antibody incompatibility. Antileukocyte antibody (HLA or granulocyte) in the transfusion recipient's plasma binds to specific antigens on the surface of the donor leukocyte.

Recommendation: Every institution should have an administrative policy that requires objective identification of every patient receiving a red blood cell transfusion, in or outside of its walls. This identification system must be in place at the time of sample collection and remain in place until the crossmatched unit(s) is/are transfused. If the identification is removed from the patient before the crossmatched unit(s) is/are transfused, a system for linking the original identification with the 44 Sazama patient must be specifically authorized or a new sample must be obtained and the crossmatch repeated using the new sample.
