The study aims include investigating specific mechanisms of adverse effects related to RBC storage age in critically ill patients. We continue to enroll patients in this study. Thus far, we have enrolled 82 patients, from whom samples have been collected, processed, shipped from Canada to San Francisco. We have completed coagulation testing on 90 patients samples and HLA typing for 54 patients Day 0 samples so far. Optimization work for the microparticle studies have built on related NIH-funded studies of in vitro properties of microparticles, refining the list of activation markers to be tested. We have completed microparticle testing for 6 patients.
