The draft Guidelines for prevention of transfusion-associated graft-versus-host disease (TA-GVHD) have been developed by the ANZSBT Clinical Practice Improvement Committee.
These guidelines cover the pathophysiology of TA-GVHD, equipment dosimetry and maintenance, clinical indications for irradiated blood components, alternatives to irradiation and risk-management approaches to patient identification, component selection and modification and inventory management to prevent TA-GVHD.
We invite interested individuals, groups and organisations to comment on the Guidelines and encourage you to advise your colleagues of its availability for public comment.
