Safety during transfusions is a major issue in medical economics. Despite drastic quality control measures, transfusion is still a source of short, mid and long-term morbi-mortality. This can be explained to some extent by changes in the composition of the packed red blood cell (PRBC) supernatant during storage essentially with the appearance of immunologically active compounds possibly involved in organ dysfunction on the one hand and post-transfusion immunomodulation on the other hand. These phenomena impact upon outcomes for cardiac surgery patients.
In terms of organ dysfunction, kidney failure due to acute tubular necrosis and pulmonary failure are the 2 main issues. Following cardiac surgery, 11% of patients will present with transient renal dysfunction characterised by a 25% increase in serum creatinine levels and 3.5% require dialysis. The intensity of acute renal failure (ARF) is correlated to resuscitation : a 20% increase in serum creatinine levels 2 to 3 days after surgery significantly raises morbidity rates and a 50% increase raises the mortality rate to 10%.
The precise mechanisms governing post-transfusion immunomodulation have not yet to be defined. The appearance of soluble type I Human leukocytes Antigen (HLA) molecules (sHLA-I), the FAS ligand (FAS-L) or cluster designation 40 (CD40-L) in the supernatant of PRBCs along the storage of blood products may be involved in such phenomena. These molecules are capable of activating or triggering the death of innate or adaptive immunity cells, especially the Natural Killer (NK) cells.
Consequently the investigators propose to focus specifically on the detailed composition of transfused PRBC supernatants in order to identify the candidate molecules responsible for organ dysfunction or post-transfusion immunoparalysis. The investigators will combine a clinical approach based on the transcriptional analysis of renal tubular cells in transfused patients and an ex-vivo approach investigating the effect of the supernatant on immune cells and the Natural Killer cells of healthy volunteers
