Blood clinical trials and research studies

What is blood and blood disorders?

Blood is the fluid that transports oxygen and nutrients around the body, helps regulate certain aspects of the body and keeping them in balance such as body temperature, and plays a part in the body’s immune system. Blood comprises four major components: plasma (the liquid part of blood which can carry hormones, enzymes, salts and antibodies), platelets (cells that play a major role in clotting and tissue repair), red blood cells (cells that carry oxygen around the body) and white blood cells (cells that fight foreign bodies and infection).

Many blood diseases and disorders involve the cellular components of blood which then impede normal function. There may be too many or too few of a cell, or the shape of a cell compromises its ability to function, or a cell is overactive. These disorders or diseases range from inherited disorders (eg. thalassaemia, sickle cell anaemia) to cancers (leukaemia) to infections (sepsis) to conditions that may arise due to a combination of genetic and environmental factors (anaemia, clotting disorders).

Some of these blood diseases and disorders can resolve completely, cause no symptoms and have no effect on overall lifespan. However, some diseases and disorders can be chronic and life-threatening. Management and treatment of these diseases and disorders depends on their type, and can include steroids, supplementation, blood transfusion, chemotherapy and bone marrow transplantation.

Where is blood and blood disorder research now?

There is intense research across most, if not all, blood diseases and disorders. Depending on the type, research can range from investigating the causes, to understanding how to better manage these diseases or disorders, to determining the potential of new technologies or therapies as treatments. These new technologies or therapies include stem cell therapy and immunotherapy.

How can I get involved in blood and blood disorder research?

Getting involved in blood disease and disorder research and clinical trials may be a part of your treatment plan, or it may help pave the way in developing new management interventions and therapies that will benefit others. There are a large number of clinical trials and research studies undertaken each year to further understand, prevent, manage and treat different types of blood diseases and disorders.
