He died three days aftef the injection" despite every effort to save his life. Dr. Robert H. Williams, head of the University o[ Washington Department of Medicine, said the blood .became contaminated "by some phenomeon" after it had been, refrigerated. "The only \V»y we can explain it," said Dr. Williams, "is that the b'acteria were able to grow in some manner while the blood was at freezing temperature ?nd not at body temperature.'" Both Dr. Williams and Dr. Clement A. Finch, associate professor of medicine in charge of hematology at the university, said they would "gladly participate in the same experiment tomorrow." The project In which Leedom took part was stai'ied by the .university nine .months ago as part of a nationwide effort to find preservatives 'which would keep whole blood longer than the 21 days considered' safe with · the present use o f - acid 'citrate, glucose. Leedom, a Seattle youth, received his first injection Thursday. A reaction set in.' '· ; Several hours later, doctors discovered the presence of. bacterial contamination in the bipod. Dr. Williams said the blood had been tested and found pure previously, then w a s refrigerated. ; · ' . . . Both university doctors said bac- teric has been'found on very'rare occasions in refrigerated blood. but was a* unooaunoa'tho risk was almost negligible. 'This just happened to be one of those most unusual cases," they said.'' ''Normally, after blood has Loon 'cultured' and found pure We do not test it again after refrigeration. The risk of inserting a needle :n .the container to take a sample is far greater than that of any bacterial growth.". . The father, Stanley I'. Leedom, said he held no one at ff.ult for his son's, death. "I don't blame anyone for this," he said. "1 just dor.'t want this tragedy to deter .in any way from the" blood donor progran or these experiments." . The .youth had planned to major In medicine.
