Abstract

Transfusion of healthy red blood cells (RBCs) is a lifesaving process. However, upon storing RBCs, a wide range of damage-associate molecular patterns (DAMPs), such as cell-free DNA, nucleosomes, free-hemoglobin, and poly-unsaturated-fatty-acids are generated. DAMPs can further damage RBCs; thus, the quality of stored RBCs declines during the storage and limits their shelf-life. Since these DAMPs consist of either positive or negative charged species, we developed taurine and acridine containing electrospun-nanofibrous-sheets (Tau-AcrNFS), featuring anionic, cationic charges and an DNA intercalating group on their surfaces. We show that Tau-AcrNFS are efficient in scavenging DAMPs from stored human and mice RBCs ex vivo. We find that intermittent scavenging of DAMPs by Tau-AcrNFS during the storage reduces the loss of RBC membrane integrity and reduces discocytes-to-spheroechinocytes transformation in stored-old-RBCs. We perform RBC-transfusion studies in mice to reveal that intermittent removal of DAMPs enhances the quality of stored-old-RBCs equivalent to freshly collected RBCs, and increases their shelf-life by ~22%. Such prophylactic technology may lead to the development of novel blood bags or medical device, and may therefore impact healthcare by reducing transfusion-related adverse effects.

    When RBCs are stored, a variety of damage-associated molecular patterns (DAMPs) such as cell-free DNA, nucleosomes, free-hemoglobin, and poly-unsaturated fatty acids are produced. DAMPs can further damage RBCs, causing the quality of stored https://lego2kdrive.io/ RBCs to deteriorate and limiting their shelf-life.

    Even while Alabama isn't well recognized as a prime location for outdoor activities, that doesn't mean the National Park Service doesn't have anything to offer https://driving-directions.co Just six blocks later, the protestors were ambushed by local authorities. A second march to the bridge was led by Martin Luther King Jr. two days later.
