The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT03338660
Recruitment Status : Withdrawn (Unable to begin study due to funding. PI has left organization.)
First Posted : November 9, 2017
Last Update Posted : May 29, 2019
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Northwell Health

Brief Summary:
Platelet function will be tested in individuals on antiplatelet medications to determine the optimal storage methodology.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Platelet Dysfunction Due to Drugs Biological: Infusion of Platelets Biological: Placebo Phase 2

Detailed Description:
Subjects will undergo administration of antiplatelet drugs and then will receive platelets stored in a variety of methods. Platelet function will be measured serially.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Placebo Comparator: Control (Placebo)
Subjects will receive infusion of placebo (saline).
Biological: Placebo
Subjects will receive infusion placebo (saline).
Other Name: Placebo (Saline)

Active Comparator: Platelet storage routine
Subjects will receive infusion of platelets stored by routine method.
Biological: Infusion of Platelets
Platelets will be stored using the routine platelet storage method. Subjects will receive infusion of platelets stored by routine storage method.
Other Name: Routine Storage Method

Experimental: Platelet storage experimental
Subjects will receive infusion of platelets stored by a novel methodology.
Biological: Infusion of Platelets
Platelets will be stored using novel, FDA approved, technique. Subjects will receive infusion of platelets stored by novel technique, routine storage, and placebo (saline).
Other Name: Novel Storage Methodology

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in platelet function [ Time Frame: 1 hour post-transfusion ]
    Frozen platelets will result in improvement in platelet function after transfusion.
