Prolonged Storage of Red Blood Cells and Composition

Hess JR, Greenwalt TJ

Novel additive solutions that are useful for the storage of human red blood cells (RBCs) under refrigerated conditions. Also, a method of using the additive solutions in an appropriate volume to preserve RBCs at about 1 to 6°C for up to 10 weeks. The solutions and processes allow the viable storage of human RBCs for an extended period of time in a solution which is directly infusible in humans.

Issue Date: November 21, 2000 US Patent # 6150085

Preservation and Shelf Life Extension of Blood Cells

Hess JR, Greenwalt TJ

Preservative solutions that extend the useful shelf-life of red cells from the current 6 to 12 weeks. This intellectual property is shared by the US Army and the University of Cincinnati. Implementation is expected to save 600,000 units from outdating annually, to reduce seasonal shortages of blood, and to make autologous donor programs more efficient.

Issue Date: November 20, 2001 US Patent # 6447987

Compositions Substantially Free of Sodium Chloride and Methods For The Storage of Red Blood Cells

Hess JR, Greenwalt TJ

Composition of a solution for storage of red blood cells consisting essentially of: adenine; dextrose; a non-metabolizable membrane-protectant sugar; and a specifically defined pH buffering system. Improved methods for preserving red blood cells and methods for increasing the viability, membrane retention, and recoverability while suppressing apoptosis, hemolysis, and post-reinfusion clearance of stored red blood cells which utilize the novel compositions.

Issue Date: April 29, 2014 US Patent # 8709707
