Dietary iron absorption is regulated by hepcidin, an iron regulatory protein produced by the liver. Hepcidin production is regulated by iron stores, erythropoiesis and inflammation, but its physiology when repeated blood loss occurs has not been characterized. Hepcidin was assayed in plasma samples obtained from 114 first-time/reactivated (no blood donations in preceding 2 years) female donors and 34 frequent (≥3 red blood cell donations in preceding 12 months) male donors as they were

Hepcidin, ferritin and hemoglobin levels declined with increasing frequency of donation in the first-time/reactivated females. Hepcidin and ferritin levels correlated well with each other (Spearman's correlation of 0.74), but on average hepcidin varied more between donations for a given donor relative to ferritin. In a multivariable repeated measures regression model the predicted inter-donation decline in hemoglobin varied as a function of hepcidin and ferritin; hemoglobin was 0.51 g/dL lower for subjects with low (≤45.7 ng/mL) or decreasing hepcidin and low ferritin (≤26 ng/mL), and was essentially zero for other subjects including those with high (>45.7 ng/mL) or increasing hepcidin and low ferritin (≤26 ng/mL) levels (P<0.001). In conclusion, hepcidin levels change rapidly in response to dietary iron needed for erythropoiesis. The dynamic regulation of hepcidin in the presence of a low levels of ferritin suggests that plasma hepcidin concentration may provide clinically useful information about an individual's iron status (and hence capacity to tolerate repeated blood donations) beyond that of ferritin alone.

Wenhao Zhang, Mark F. Hansen, Timothy N. Volonakis, Melvyn Smith, Lyndon Smith, Jim Wilson, Graham Ralston, Laurence Broadbent, Glynn Wright
2018 2018 IEEE 3rd International Conference on Image, Vision and Computing (ICIVC)  
Weed control in pasture is a challenging problem that can be expensive and environmentally unfriendly. This paper proposes a novel method for recognition of broad-leaf weeds in pasture such that precision weed control can be achieved with reduced herbicide use. Both conventional machine learning algorithms and deep learning methods have been explored and compared to achieve high detection accuracy and robustness in real-world environments. In-pasture grass/weed image data have been captured for

Potential impact on blood availability and donor iron status of changes to donor hemoglobin cutoff and interdonation intervals

2016 Transfusion  
BACKGROUND-A minimum male hemoglobin (Hb) of 13.0 g/dL will become an FDA requirement in May 2016. In addition, extending whole blood (WB) interdonation intervals (IDIs) beyond 8 weeks has been considered in order to reduce iron depletion in repeat blood donors. This study estimates the impact these changes might have on blood availability and donor iron status. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS-Six blood centers participating in REDS-II collected information on all donation visits from 2006-09.
more » ... ons were developed from these data using a multi-stage approach that first sought to adequately reproduce the patterns of donor return, Hb and ferritin levels, and outcomes of a donor's visit (successful single or double RBC donation, deferral for low Hb) observed in REDS-II datasets. Modified simulations were used to predict the potential impact on the blood supply and donor iron status under different Hb cutoff and IDI qualification criteria. RESULTS-More than 10% of WB donations might require replacement under many simulated scenarios. Longer IDIs would reduce the proportion of donors with iron depletion, but 80% of these donors may remain iron-depleted if minimal IDIs increased to 12 or 16 weeks. CONCLUSION-Higher Hb cutoffs and longer IDIs are predicted to have a potentially large impact on collections but only a modest impact on donor iron depletion. Efforts to address iron depletion should be targeted to at-risk donors, such as iron supplementation programs for frequent donors, and policy makers should try to avoid broadly restrictive donation requirements that could substantially reduce blood availability.

2010 Transfusion  
BACKGROUND-Transfusion related acute lung injury (TRALI) has been associated with both HLA and HNA antibodies. HNA antibody frequency, specificity, and demographic associations have not been well defined in the blood donor population. METHODS-A subset of 1171 donors (388 non-transfused males, 390 HLA antibody negative females with three or more pregnancies, and 393 HLA antibody positive females with three or more pregnancies) from a larger leukocyte antibody prevalence study (LAPS) was tested

Additional testing on selected samples included monoclonal antibody immobilization of granulocyte antigen -flow cytometry and granulocyte genotyping. RESULTS-Eight samples were HNA antibody positive (prevalence 0.7% [95% CI, 0.3 -1.3%]). Three HNA antibodies (one IgG and two IgM) were found in non-transfused males (prevalence 0.8% [95% CI, 0.2 -2.2%]); all were pan-reactive or non-specific. One HLA antibody negative previously pregnant female had an IgG HNA antibody with HNA-1a specificity (prevalence 0.3% [95% CI, 0.01-1.4%]). Four HLA antibody positive previously pregnant females demonstrated HNA antibodies, three IgG and one IgM (prevalence 1% [95% CI, 0.3 -2.6%]). Two of these were HNA-1a specific, one HNA-4a specific, and one non-specific. CONCLUSION-HNA antibodies occur with low frequency in the donor population and are present in both male and female donors. Despite the implementation of TRALI reduction strategies, HNA antibodies are still present in donor blood products. Though our data do not create a case for urgent implementation of donor HNA antibody testing, future new developments for high throughput HNA antibody screening, including for HNA-3a, may warrant reconsideration.

ABSTRACTAlternative splicing (AS) is a key mechanism underlying cellular differentiation and a driver of complexity in mammalian neuronal tissues. However, understanding of which isoforms are differentially used or expressed and how this affects cellular differentiation remains unclear. Long read sequencing allows full-length transcript recovery and quantification, enabling transcript-level analysis of AS processes and how these change with cell state. Here, we utilise Oxford Nanopore

We identify many previously unannotated features, including a novel transcript of the voltage-gated calcium channel subunit gene, CACNA2D2. We show differential expression and usage of transcripts during differentiation, and identify a putative molecular regulator underlying this state change. Our work highlights the potential of long read sequencing to uncover previously unknown transcript diversity and mechanisms influencing alternative splicing.

2010 Transfusion  
Background-HLA antibody testing of previously transfused or pregnant donors may help reduce the risk of transfusion-related acute lung injury (TRALI). However, the prevalence of HLA antibodies in transfused donors has not been well characterized. Methods-Transfusion and pregnancy history was obtained from consenting donors. HLA Class I & II antibody testing was performed by multi-antigen bead Luminex platform. Cut off values for class I & II antibodies used normalized background ratio of 10.8

Results-7,920 donors (2,086 males and 5,834 females) were tested. HLA antibody prevalence did not significantly differ between 895 transfused (1.7%) and 1138 non-transfused males (1.0%), [odds ratio (OR) 1.75; 95% CI 0.80, 3.82]. Prevalence in 45 transfused nulliparous females (4.4%, 95% CI 0.1%, 11.8%) was not statistically different from the 1.6% prevalence in 1732 non-transfused nulliparous females (odds ratio 2.94, 95% CI 0.68, 12.74). Transfused parous females had higher prevalence than non-transfused counterparts (p=0.004), odds ratio 1.39 (95% CI 1.07, 1.80). In a linear probability model, the estimated additive risk of transfusion-induced alloimmunization was only 0.8% (95% CI -0.2%, 1.8%), (p=0.10). Donor transfusion history showed that 58% of transfusions occurred >10 years previously. Conclusion-Transfused volunteer blood donors do not appear to have a significantly higher prevalence of HLA antibodies than their non-transfused counterparts. Thus, in an effort to reduce TRALI risk, ascertaining past history of transfusion and testing these donors for HLA antibodies is not necessary.
