Blood Symptoms and Causes
Your Blood is made up of liquid and solids. The liquid part, called plasma, is made of water, salts, and protein. Over half of your Blood is plasma. The solid part of your Blood contains red Blood cells, white Blood cells, and platelets.
Red Blood cells (RBC) deliver oxygen from your lungs to your tissues and organs. White Blood cells (WBC) fight infection and are part of your immune system. Platelets help Blood to clot when you have a cut or wound. Bone marrow, the spongy material inside your bones, makes new Blood cells. Blood cells constantly die and your body makes new ones. Red Blood cells live about 120 days, and platelets live about 6 days. Some white Blood cells live less than a day, but others live much longer.
There are four Blood types: A, B, AB, or O. Also, Blood is either Rh-positive or Rh-negative. So if you have type A Blood, it's either A positive or A negative. Which type you are is important if you need a Blood transfusion. And your Rh factor could be important if you become pregnant - an incompatibility between your type and the baby's could create problems.
Blood tests such as Blood count tests help doctors check for certain diseases and conditions. They also help check the function of your organs and show how well treatments are working. Problems with your Blood may include bleeding disorders, excessive clotting and platelet disorders. If you lose too much Blood, you may need a transfusion.

Blood Clinical Trials and StudiesTreatments might be new drugs or new combinations of drugs, new surgical procedures or devices, or new ways to use existing treatments. The goal of clinical trials is to determine if a new test or treatment works and is safe. Clinical trials can also look at other aspects of care, such as improving the quality of life for people with chronic illnesses. People participate in clinical trials for a variety of reasons. Healthy volunteers say they participate to help others and to contribute to moving science forward. Participants with an illness or disease also participate to help others, but also to possibly receive the newest treatment and to have the additional care and attention from the clinical trial staff.
