Christine Cserti-Gazdewich, BSc, MD, Blood Transfusion Laboratory, Toronto General Hospital, and colleagues wanted to address the burgeoning concern that the longer blood units are stored, the likelier it may be to introduce harm or simply not work as well.
 
Cserti-Gazdewich remarked, "We wanted to make sure that precautionary worry was founded or not, and we believe this study helps people gain more reassurance."
