    Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) leads to a generalized inflammatory reaction, resulting in increased postoperative leucocyte counts and decreased pulmonary function. In adults, removal of leucocytes from the residual heart-lung machine blood after CPB improved postoperative oxygenation. In...

    Blood is stored to achieve a good post-transfusion survival. The ability of stored whole blood or blood components to fulfill their functions after transfusion can be studied during the period of storage.

    Aims: In humans, little is known about the effects of platelet-leucocyte interactions on blood viscosity and microvascular perfusion. This study tested the hypotheses that (1) activation and interactions between platelets and leucocytes may have an impact on microvascular blood viscosity and...

    Background: Low lung function is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. It is therefore of interest to identify biomarkers that are associated with impaired lung function. The aim of the study was to analyse associations of biomarkers and combinations of biomarkers with lung function...

    The results of leucocyte filtration during cardiac surgery are conflicting. This may be due to timing and duration of the filtration procedure, and to flow and pressure conditions in the filter. Therefore, we prospectively compared three major leucocyte filtration strategies in cardiac surgical...

    Birds of different sex and age are known to differ in morphology and physiology. We investigated leucocyte profiles and body condition of the Savi's warbler ( Locustella luscinioides) in relation to sex, age and moulting status. We caught birds during the post-breeding period at the stopover...
