Transplantation and Transfusion

Abstract

Chimeras are commonly created as part of medical treatment via organ transplantation and blood product transfusion. Microchimerism has been found in patients after receiving blood products. These transient cell populations generally become undetectable in immunocompetent patients within seven days of transfusion. Extended longevity of donor leukocytes is seen in transfused trauma patient including combat casualties and can be detected decades posttransfusion.
