Most research is done on animals (generally rats) and not a lot of studies are done on primates. (it's expensive).
Not true. There is a significant amount of research being done on primates. Mostly virus and neurological study. I work at the University of Rochester medical center genetics department and I see many, many, many primates going to and from the research labs as we are on the same floor.

See what a lot of people do not know is that it has to be just water , u cant dilute it with juice / squash / pop. because the body processes water differently.
when its mixed with soemthing the body processes it as food .. water on its own is dealt with slightly differently ...

Aside from that, don't they usually administer immuno-suppressives when giving a major blood infusion?

If there is an unexpected death in the OR, they have to close the room and begin an investigation, much like 'yellow taping' you see in CSI. Then an investigation is done to determine the CoD
You, sir are sounding very naive. There's been a whole commission on this. As a former OSHA investigator, believe me, I know. Just take this as a pointer and do your own searching. It's rampant; from big mistakes to small mistakes. Another scandal is the problem of Nurses taking patients' pain meds.
Doesn't mean the problem is non-existent, now, does it?
The immunosuppressive effect of blood transfusion is very well known. Google that phrase.
after stratifying patients into stages and applying proportional regression analyses, blood transfusion did not appear to have any effect on prognosis: relative risk ratio, 1.16;p=0.28. Similarly, comparison of patients transfused with more than 600 cc of blood and those transfused with 600 cc of blood or less revealed no statistical difference in survival time.
