Effect of Blood Donation on Blood Pressure, Iron Metabolism, Oxidative Stress
The investigators want to investigate the effects of blood donation to blood pressure, to iron metabolism and oxidative stress.
There are results of other studies that show, that there is a positive effect of blood donation to high blood pressure, iron metabolism and oxidative stress.
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Prospective Observational Study on the Effects of Blood Donation on Blood Pressure, Iron Metabolism and Oxidative Stress|
- blood pressure [ Time Frame: 3 months ]seated blood pressure will be measured baseline and after 3 months by trained professionals
- blood pressure [ Time Frame: 12 months ]seated blood pressure will be measured baseline and after 12 months by trained professionals
Biospecimen Retention: Samples Without DNA
|Study Start Date:||February 2012|
|Study Completion Date:||May 2014|
|Primary Completion Date:||May 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
The regular application flow of blood donation at that blood bank of Charité is not disturbed. There are only some more questions and measurement of blood pressure, iron metabolism, fat metabolism and oxidative stress.
No extra puncture of the vein is necessary.
