The subject matter of this 14th foreign Symposium on Blood Transfusion is heavily regarding the paintings and medical contributions of the Dutch cryobiology pioneer Dr. Herman W. Krijnen of the Dutch crimson go imperative Laboratory. Dr. Krijnen used to be recognized and revered within the nationwide and interna tional blood transfusion group as a really powerfuble scientist and a loved and fashionable colleague. Dr. Krijnen was once deliberately honoured with the invitation to open this symposium on cryopreservation and coffee temperature biology in blood transfusion and be the visitor of honour at this occasion. regrettably, Dr. Krijnen by surprise died at the first of June 1989. In honour and mem ory of Dr. Krijnen this symposium will accordingly be devoted to him. because the lOth foreign Symposium on Blood Transfusion in 1985 highlighted the topic of "Future advancements in blood banking", significant adjustments have happened within the blood banking international. every one of these adjustments have been pressured upon the Blood Banks through the terror of spreading AIDS via infected donations. This not just resulted in the broad unfold checking out of blood, but additionally to a extra acceptable counselling of the group and the blood donors in particular. also, virus inacti vation suggestions have been brought for these parts derived from a number of donations and meant for a customary transfusion in haemophi lia sufferers and others.
