Transfusion Evidence Round-Up

Transfusion Evidence Round-Up
World Kidney Day 2024

Welcome to the quarterly Transfusion Evidence Round-Up. This is a collaboration between the International Society of Blood Transfusion (ISBT) and the Transfusion Evidence Library (TEL).  We aim to highlight high-quality evidence randomised controlled trials and systematic reviews about an internationally relevant subject in the field of Transfusion Medicine.  All references are drawn from the Transfusion Evidence Library and, where relevant, Stem Cell Evidence.

The Transfusion Evidence Library is produced by the Systematic Review Initiative (SRI) and funded by the four UK blood services. It is available free at the point of access providing a comprehensive and up-to-date database of high-quality evidence in Transfusion Medicine.

The International Society of Blood Transfusion (ISBT) is a scientific society creating a community of transfusion medicine professionals from around the globe. ISBT works towards its vision of "a world of safe and sufficient blood" by undertaking advocacy for patient and donor safety, sharing knowledge to enhance transfusion practice and providing opportunities for education.
