  2. 2. Please visit us on www.ints.fr « Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem » Dear ATMC 8 attendee, First of all let me thank you for granting me the opportunity to introduce my institution, the French national institute of blood transfusion and the research, reference and educational activities we deal with, which we hope will be of interest to you. I’m very keen to learn from your Blood Transfusion organization and requirements, the system of transfusion medicine as implemented by the Ministry of Health in your country, and your educational system in blood transfusion. Undoubtdely our today’s discussion will help our institutions learn from each other, and I’m confident it will lay the grounds for future collaboration project possibilities, for the sake of blood transfusion and blood donors. I remain anytime at your disposal for any information complement. With best regards. Sophie Marechal-Francon Sr. Delegate for International Activities, INTSHilton Pyramids Golf Resort, Cairo (Egypt) – December 1 – 4, 2010 2
  3. 3. Please visit us on www.ints.fr Introduction to the INTS and its Role  The INTS is the French national institute of blood transfusion.  It was founded in 1994 by the French authorities (under the aegis of two ministries: Ministry of Public Health and Ministry of Education and Research) to break up with the mergers that had led to the infected blood scandal which burst in France in 1991.  The INTS is located in Paris, in the 15th arrondissement (Eiffel Tower area) and has a second site located in Paris 11th arrondissement (near the Bastille), dedicated to the CNRGS (French national reference centre for blood groups).  INTS staff: 180 persons altogether  A 3-fold assignment in Blood Transfusion: Research, Reference, and Education & Training.  5 laboratories:  Blood-transmissible infectious agents (reference lab. for B,C, Delta Hepatites and HIV)  Platelet Immunology  Human genetics  Immunogenetics & applied molecular approaches (CNRGS: French reference centre for blood groups)  Molecular genetics of blood groups, in association with the INSERM (French national institute for health and medical research) entity located in our premises.Hilton Pyramids Golf Resort, Cairo (Egypt) – December 1 – 4, 2010 3
  4. 4. Please visit us on www.ints.fr The CNRGS: Role and Specificities The CNRGS (French national reference centre for blood groups) is a unique structure in Europe in terms of responsiveness. It guarantees 24/7 a close surveillance on biological and clinical red blood cell compatibility linked to the 30 blood group systems currently identified, and more especially for rare blood types. Please kindly read the enclosed specific CNRGS brochure to know more. The CNRGS receives blood samples from all over the world – for example, from the centre of armed forces in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia - for complex immuno-haematology case-solving, including rare blood type screening. Highlights in 2009:  Renewal of the Certification for CE type by G-MED/LNE (Paris) for the national reference red blood cell panel (DMDIV marked CE, production laboratory certified NF EN ISO/13485)  COFRAC approval for the renewal accreditation of the reagent batch control laboratory (check-up of reagent batches as per European directive 98/79/CE Annex IIA, according to NF EN ISO/CEI 17025 standard).  COFRAC approval for the accreditation of the specialized immuno-haematology laboratory as per NF EN ISO/CEI 17025 standard.  Implementation of a BioArray® high throughput genotyping platform in response to a growing demand in genotyping requests, in particular for Duffy, Kidd and MNS systems.  Set up of a quality external appraisal program for the specialized immuno-haematology laboratory in collaboration with the AFSSAPS (French national agency for health product safety).Hilton Pyramids Golf Resort, Cairo (Egypt) – December 1 – 4, 2010 4
  5. 5. Please visit us on www.ints.fr International Presence & Development In 2002, Prof. Philippe Rouger, CEO to the INTS, founded EuroNet-TMS (European network of Transfusion Medicine Societies):  17 countries from scratch – over 30 countries in 2010  Missionned by national health authorities to enquire on blood transfusion practices in Europe (for example: pre-donation Hb testing, autologous transfusion, donor compensation, HTLV prevention, etc …)  3 meetings a year in European cities to compile practices and field statistics to be reported to European authorities for drafting Directives on blood transfusion recommendations and good practices.  Editor of a white paper every 5 year: ‘Blood Transfusion in Europe: The White Book 2005’ ; we are currently working on the 2011 edition in collaboration with the EBA (European Blood Alliance). All our heads of departments are authors of multiple international publications and are regularly invited to deliver state of the art lectures in their specific fields in transfusion medicine events all over the world. Every year since 1992, the INTS set up a 2-day international symposium in Paris focusing on specific scientific and technological advances in transfusion where high-flying experts from all over the world meet and display their experiences and practices. The event program is issued by a dedicated scientific committee. 2010 The role of blood antigens and associated molecules in red cell biology: from molecular approaches to clinical applications (with INSERM) 2009 Molecular Biology of red cells : from research to diagnosis (with SFTS) 2008 Adhesion molecules in red cell-endothelium interaction: impact on sickle cell and malaria … the complete list of our international symposia is available from our website www.ints.fr Hilton Pyramids Golf Resort, Cairo (Egypt) – December 1 – 4, 2010 5
  6. 6. Please visit us on www.ints.fr International Presence & DevelopmentINTS international involvement in 2009:  74 collaborations in Europe, USA, Asia, Africa, Near-East 57% INTS-INSERM and CNRGS, 19% Virology, 13% Platelet Immunology, 11% molecular biochemistry.  49 invitations to deliver lectures in Europe, USA, Asia, Canada and Brazil 72% INTS-INSERM and CNRGS, 12% molecular biochemistry, 10% Platelet immunology, 6% Virology. For 5 years, Prof. Jean-Jacques Lefrère, head of our Virology Dept, has been involved in WHO-supported collaborative projects for implementing 70 research laboratories (of which 10 implemented so far) and quality control policies in 15 African countries in partnership with the Institut Pasteur. Also, during the ISBT Congress in Berlin last June, the INTS received from countries in the MENA area a growing demand for educational services, transfusional advice, quality and continuous improvement policy implementation, blood groups, etc … So we have decided to emphasize our visibility:  In creating and implementing an English website developing promotion tools (eg INTS BreakingNews) to keep our contacts aware of our scientific developments, our participation in international events so we can anticipate on meetings and better answer their requirements.  In taking part as exhibitors/lecturers in international events: Hyderabad, Amsterdam, Tehran, Lisbon (ISBT), Abidjan are featured in the INTS 2010/2011 agenda.  In setting up visits of potential foreign partners in their country in order to analyze their project developments and requirements and try to find out matching possibilities with our range of services.
