Abstract:Activated neutrophils are central in the pathophysiology of TRALI as their interaction with the lung endothelium causes capillary leak and pulmonary edema. Typically, numerous factors must act together in order to overcome a critical activation threshold of the neutrophil. At least one of these factors originates from a transfused blood component.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
