AM21-84: Identifying Current and Future Best Practices in Perinatal Patient Testing and Care

Oct 19, 2021 9:00pm ‐ Oct 19, 2021 10:00pm

Identification: AM21-84

Credits: None available.

The transfusion service plays a critical role in the management of perinatal patients. This interactive session will engage the audience and speakers in an active discussion on approaches for testing and management of this patient population. Topics presented are those identified as controversial or for which there is no unified approach and include: 

  • The timing and frequency of type and screens during pregnancy, and the need for type and screen with crossmatch at delivery.
  • The indications to perform molecular tests i.e., maternal RHD genotyping to distinguish weak D from partial D and fetal RHD genotyping using cell-free DNA to make decisions regarding the need for monitoring and Rh immune globulin administration.
  • Guidance about antibody critical titer thresholds and the appropriate management once critical titer is reached.
  • Suggestions regarding which cord blood tests should and should not be performed to diagnose and assess future risk of hemolytic disease of the fetus and newborn.

Identification: AM21-86

Credits: None available.

In 2014, executive leadership at AABB and ISCT agreed to establish a joint working group (WG) for the purpose of identifying issues common to both organizations in the cellular therapy (CT) arena and exploring advocacy issues on which both organizations can collaborate. The WG has been involved in several projects since then. This session will provide updates on two of the current projects executed by two teams of experts recruited through the WG.

Project 1: Considerations for the Establishment of a CT Product Stability Program

The goals of the project are to:

  • educate the community regarding considerations for CT stability programs
  • create reference documents/communication materials to help with the design of a stability program for hematopoietic stem/progenitor cell products

Project 2: Establishment of a GTP interpretative tool that can assist with clarification of Human Cells, Tissues and Cellular-Based Products (HCT/Ps) regulations under 21 CFR 1271 and Section 361 of the PHS Act and/or the FD&C Act

The goals of this project are to:

  • educate community regarding interpretation of GTP requirements and how best to prepare for FDA inspections of establishments that manufacture HCT/Ps
  • create a tool providing section-by-section guidance specific to the needs of a CT laboratory to achieve regulatory compliance and preparation for unannounced FDA inspections

The Solve It! Scenarios in Cellular Therapy session offers an interactive and constructive program for Cellular Therapy professionals to share challenges through case scenario presentations. This program permits attendees to select topics of particular interest, rotate through multiple scenario case presentations in small, informal groups, and develop problem solving strategies. Join us for lively interactions and networking with experts in the field of Cellular Therapy and fellow colleagues.
