Abstract

Background: The use of fresh platelets results in better posttransfusion recovery end survival than does the use of platelets that have been stored before transfusion. Activation of platelets during preparation and storage may be one of the factors responsible for a number of storage-related changes in platelet membrane proteins. Blood centers commonly prepare platelet concentrates from both multiple units of whole blood and single-donor plateletpheresis collections. Study Design and Methods: Seventeen plateletpheresis concentrates, anticoagulated with ACD, were compared to platelets prepared from whole blood from the same donor that was anticoagulated with CPDA-1 (random-donor platelets). After preparation, plateletpheresis and random-donor platelets were stored in plastic storage bags at 22°C for 5 days. Platelet surface glycoproteins were examined by flow cytometry after platelets were fixed in dilute plasma with 1-percent formaldehyde and stained with fluorescein isothiocyanate-labeled monoclonal antibodies CD42b (anti-glycoprotein [GP]1b), CD41a (anti-GPIIb/IIIa), and CD62 (anti-P-selectin). Results: The binding of anti-CD42b was greater in plateletpheresis concentrates than in random-donor platelets on Days 3 and 5 (p
