Experts examine problems and advances in blood supply safety and screening
Date:3/21/2011

Some 14 million units of blood are transfused in the US every year. Routine blood screening protocols test for several common pathogens, including Hepatitis B and C, HIV types 1 and 2, and syphilis, but not others such as XMRV, a retrovirus that has been linked to chronic fatigue syndrome. A symposium at the New York Academy of Sciences on March 29 will reveal recent advances in the testing and screening of the blood supply, diagnose the current problems, and explore future efforts to maximize the safety of this vital resource.
