Of note, the BCSH Blood Transfusion Task Force takes the stance that " [i]t is not necessary to irradiate red cells for routine 'top-up' transfusions of premature or term infants." (10) The BCSH cited the fact that there are few reports of TA-GVHD in preterm and full-term infants (10); however, this does not appear to take into account the potential for developing TA-GVHD if a condition that would put the infant at risk has yet to be diagnosed.
Based on multiple documented cases of TA-GVHD in this population, the European School of Haematology, the European Group for Blood and Marrow Transplantation, the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy, and the BCSH Blood Transfusion Task Force all recommend irradiated blood products for allogeneic and autologous hematopoietic progenitor cell recipients.
