ANZSBT Publications List  

Topics in Transfusion Medicine

Topics in Transfusion Medicine (TTM) was a regular publication from the Society which endeavoured to present up to date interest items in the transfusion arena from around the world deemed to be of interest to members at large. At times it contained invited or submitted papers from members that dealt with key areas of transfusion practice or transfusion related research. There are no plans to publish any further issues.
