Abstract

Hepatic function was studied in experiments on 16 dogs after massive transfusion of red cell pack to ascertain the blood components influencing this function most. Massive transfusion of red cell pack failed to induce any significant changes in the excretory-absorbing protein forming function, and also in the content of transaminases. Hepatic function was markedly disturbed in a control group given massive transfusions of whole homologous blood. Results of investigations support the suggestion that one of the causes of hepatic function disturbances in "the syndrome of massive blood transfusion" was donor's and recipient's plasma protein incompatibility.
