Irradiation of Blood Products All blood products are irradiated prior to administration to HSCT recipients to prevent transfusion associated GVHD. Blood units are irradiated with either a cesium (137Cs) or cobalt (60Co) radiation source. Most blood banks use radiation doses between 1500 and 3500 cGy. Irradiation damages the lymphocytes by forming electrically charged particles or ions that alter the DNA, rendering the lymphocytes unable to proliferate. After irradiation, there is no reduction in the life span of the cells transfused, and granulocytes appear to maintain their function.

It appears that granulocyte infusions are effective for the treatment of gramnegative bacteremia in neutropenic neonates (109). However, the efficacy of granulocyte infusion in patients undergoing HSCT is less clear. Early studies were limited by the administration of low doses of granulocytes and the unavailability of hematopoietic growth factors (CSFs) to increase the number of peripheral blood neutrophils. The use of granulocytes harvested from cytokine-stimulated donors has not been well studied.
