Platelets, an important blood component that helps control bleeding, can be given intravenously to help stabilize patients with life-threatening bleeding or clotting disorders due to platelet dysfunction. However, platelets can be difficult to store while still maintaining their viability and function. Advances in human medicine have led to the development of platelet additive solutions that can extend the functional storage life of platelets for transfusion. Researchers will compare and validate the effectiveness of several platelet additive solutions for dog platelets. This new information may lead to longer storage life and greater availability of platelet products needed for life-saving transfusions in dogs.
