Viral Risk Assessment: Kedrion wins the SIMTI award

As part of the XXXVIII National Conference on Transfusion Medicine, the Scientific Committee of SIMTI (Italian Society of Transfusion and Immunohaematologic Medicine) has selected, as the winner for the session “transfusion-transmitted diseases”, the presentation Viral Risk Assessment – Modello Kedrion: applicazione nell’ambito del plasma italiano destinato alla lavorazione industriale (Viral Risk Assessment – Kedrion’s model: application of Italian plasma for industrial processing) (authors: Elisabetta Tosi, Tommaso Paoli, Elisa Moretti, Angela Caffarena, Claudia Nardini).

The Kedrion’s model – the result of a cooperation between groups from different backgrounds and positions, Industrial Development and Research Group (in this case, NAT Development, Nucleic Acid Amplification Techniques, and Process and Test Development) and Quality Assurance Group (Plasma Release QA Department) – has been judged to be an interesting application of mathematical models for the assessment of infection-related transfusion risks ordinarily involved in the transfusion of labile products to plasma derived products.
