Investigation de la pathogenèse du syndrome de détresse respiratoire aiguë post-transfusionnel (TRALI) dans un modèle murin

Abstract : Blood transfusion saves lives and reduces morbidity for many diseases and clinical conditions, but it is not without complications. A transfusion-related adverse event, also known as the Adverse Reaction (AR), is an incident occurring in a patient during or after a blood transfusion. Among them, TRALI is considered as one of the most critical inflammatory reactions. This pathology usually occurs within 6 hours after transfusion. Two types are recognized: immune TRALI and non-immune TRALI. In France, the first is almost completely prevented by a blood product safety policy, while the frequency of the second increases. The pathophysiology of TRALI remains poorly understood. While some scientists give an important function of patient blood platelets, others consider them dispensable. The aim of this thesis was, first, to investigate the inflammatory potential of blood platelets stored in platelet concentrates and its impact on the general vascular endothelium. Next, the role of patient blood platelets, including their secretory products, in the pathogenesis of this transfusion complication will be evaluated. For it, an ALI (mimicking a TRALI) was triggered, in an in vivo model, by an injection of anti-MHC I antibody in mice previously stimulated with LPS. Our results confirm the inflammatory potential of blood platelets in platelet concentrates, which can probably assume the entire responsibility for triggering a non-immune TRALI, and a secondary role for patient blood platelets in the amplification of the severity of this pathology. This thesis is the continuity of studies conducted in the laboratory GIMAP-EA3064, investigating the function of blood platelets in inflammation, thus opening up new perspectives in transfusion safety.
