    Cellular blood components contain passenger donor leukocytes.

    Transfusion of passenger leukocytes may be associated with alloimmunization to leukocyte antigens, febrile transfusion reactions, refractoriness to platelet transfusion, severe pulmonary dysfunction, graft-vs-host disease, the transmission of infectious diseases, and immune modulation.

    Advanced leukocyte-reduction filters enable the removal of up to 99.9% of leukocytes from cellular blood components.

    Clinical trials suggest that the use of leukocyte-reduction filters may prevent or diminish the probability of febrile transfusion reactions, alloimmunization, and cytomegalovirus infection, but controversy exists regarding the effectiveness of leukocyte reduction in preventing immune modulation.
