blood donor

One who gives blood (or its components) to be used for transfusion.

cadaveric donor

One who donates an organ or tissue after his or her death.

directed donor

A family member, friend, or significant other who gives blood, an organ, or tissue to another person to support a vital function or prevent death.

HLA-mismatched related donor

Mismatched related donor.

human leukocyte antigen matched unrelated donor

Matched unrelated donor.

hydrogen donor

In oxidation-reduction reactions, a substance that gives up hydrogen atoms to another substance, the acceptor.
See: hydrogen acceptor

living donor

One who donates an organ or tissue while he or she is still living. Living donors must be healthy and antigenically matched to the recipient.

matched unrelated donor

Abbreviation: MUD
One who donates an organ or tissue (such as bone marrow stem cells) to another person with human leukocyte antigens identical to those of the organ recipient.
Synonym: human leukocyte antigen matched unrelated donor

mismatched related donor

Abbreviation: MMRD
An organ or tissue donor who is a family member of the organ recipient but whose human leukocyte antigens are not identical to those of the recipient. In general in organ transplantation, organ and recipient survival are highest when the donor and the recipient share the same HLA antigens.
Synonym: HLA-mismatched related donor

nondirected donor

A person who donates blood, an organ, or tissue to the community at large and is unknown to the recipient.

related HLA-identical donor

Related identical donor.

related identical donor

Abbreviation: RID
A family member who donates an organ or tissue (such as a kidney or bone marrow stem cells) to another family member who shares perfectly matched human leukocyte antigens. Organ transplantations from RIDs have higher success rates than transplants obtained from mismatched related donors (MMRDs) or from matched unrelated donors (MUDs).
Synonym: related HLA-identical donor

universal donor

A person who has group O red blood cells. In a life-threatening emergency this person's cells can be transfused into any patient in need of red blood cells.

related identical donor

Abbreviation: RID
A family member who donates an organ or tissue (such as a kidney or bone marrow stem cells) to another family member who shares perfectly matched human leukocyte antigens. Organ transplantations from RIDs have higher success rates than transplants obtained from mismatched related donors (MMRDs) or from matched unrelated donors (MUDs).
Synonym: related HLA-identical donor

immunodiffusion

(ĭm″ū-nō-dĭ-fū′zhŭn) [ immuno- + diffusion]
A test method in which an antigen and antibody are placed in a gel, where they diffuse toward each other. When they meet, a precipitate is formed.

radial immunodiffusion

Abbreviation: RID
A means of measuring the amount of antigen in a sample in which a solution containing the antigen is dropped into a gel evenly impregnated with antibody. The diameter of the ring that precipitates around the solution varies directly with the amount of antigen in the solution.

Patient discussion about RID

Q. Can you get rid of endometriosis?

A. Currently, there is no known cure for endometriosis. Nevertheless, a hysterectomy and/or removal of the ovaries will not guarantee that the endometriosis areas or the symptoms of endometriosis will not come back, since adhesions can be found on other organs besides the reproductive organs. Surgical treatment tends to be conservative, with the goal of addressing pain or infertility issues through removal of the endometriosis tissue without damaging normal tissue. Several medication are known to be helpful occasionally, such as hormones (Progesterone or Progestins),combined oral contraceptive pills, Gonadotropin Releasing Hormone (GnRH) Agonists and more. You should consult your OB/GYN physician about the treatment best suitable for you.

Q. How do I get rid of allergy "shiners"? I get these dark circles under my eyes, especially when my allergies are bad. Make up helps but not a lot. I take a multi vitamin suppliment daily and that has no effect on it. It looks like I've been up for days sometimes or in some sort of fight. Any advise out there?

A. some courses of action, the best way is just to avoid the allergen- but you probably knew that... another method is applying cool tea bags, an ice cube wrapped in soft cloth, or cucumber slices to your eyes daily. The tannin in tea bags has been shown to reduce swelling and discoloration. Lie down, preferably in the morning, and leave fresh cucumber slices or cool, damp caffeinated tea bags (you can refrigerate them overnight so they’ll be ready) over your eyes for about 10-15 minutes. Keep your eyes close :)

Q. how can you get rid of anxiety attacks

A. Meditation helped me get over mine a great deal. Also, my anxiety attacks were deeply tied to school so I used an NLP (Neuro-Linguistic-Programming) technique to associate positive things with school and negative things to not going.
