Q: In patients with Aplastic Anemia transfusions should only be given from close family members?

A) True 
B) False

Answer: B (False)

Ideally, patients with Aplastic Anemia should not receive blood product transfusions from a sibling or a family member, to minimize the risk of an immune reaction to donor antigens, as in the case of Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation (HCT), which may lead to graft failure.
