Q: Risk of TRALI (Transfusion Related Acute Lung Injury) can be decreased by avoiding FFP donors from? (select one)

A) Male donors
B) Never pregnant female donors
C) Multiparous female donors
D) Any person older than 60
E) Any person with previous history of receiving transfusion

Answer: C

Incidence of TRALI can be decreased by avoiding donations from multiparous women as they are most likely to contain anti-leukocyte antibodies. It is recommended to transfuse plasma products predominantly from male donors, female donors with no prior pregnancy, or from donors who test negative for HLA-antibodies.
