Transfusion News Video Addresses Innovative Ways to Think About TRALI that May Reduce Cases

The May 15 video posting on discusses TRALI, or transfusion-related acute lung injury. A major cause of TRALI is donor antibodies to white blood cells such as HLA and HNA, which activate leukocytes and neutrophils, and trigger the innate immune response. This process leads to acute lung injury. Other non-immune mediators, however, such as cell debris and biologically active lipids and peptides, can also cause TRALI. The video references an editorial in the May 2015 issue by Mark A. Popovsky, MD.
