Is there a relationship between anti-HPA-1a concentration and severity of neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia?

There is uncertainty about the relationship between anti-HPA-1a levels and severity of neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (NAIT). To investigate this relationship further,the concentration of anti-HPA-1a in HPA-1b homozygous women was determined,using a newly developed quantitative ELISA that uses purified anti-HPA-1a to obtain a standard curve. Seventy-eight samples collected from 22 HPA-1b homozygous pregnant women at various stages of pregnancy were tested. These included five women who

Trimeresurus venom inhibition of anti-HPA-1a and anti-HPA-1b antibody binding to human platelets

, Micrurus, Naja, Notechis, Ophiophagus, Pseudechis, Sepedon (Hemachatus), and Vipera, all failed to specifically inhibit anti-HPA-1a and HPA-1b binding. These results may indicate that the component in Trimeresurus snake venom previously reported to bind to the platelet GPIIb-IIIa complex, inhibiting fibrinogen binding, binds close to the HPA-1a and HPA-1b epitopes.

Flow cytometric phenotyping of platelet HPA-1a antigen: donor screening for a case of neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia due to anti-HPA-1a antibodies

Neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia can effectively be treated by transfusing compatible platelets to the affected newborn, but typed, compatible platelets are not generally available. For a case of probable neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia due to anti-HPA-1a, part of the donor population of the regional blood bank was phenotyped to find HPA-1a-negative platelets. A flow cytometric technique was used, which is reliable, rapid, and relatively simple and therefore well suited for large-scale

Neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia due to anti-HPA-5b (Bra)

Neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (NAIT) results from maternal immunization against fetal platelet antigens and can occur during the first pregnancy. The most common complications of NAIT are neonatal thrombocytopenia, intracerebral hemorrhage, and fetal death. Most cases of NAIT in Causasians are caused by anti-HPA-1a (PlA1). Anti-HPA-5b (Bra) accounts for only 4.3 percent of all NAIT cases. NAIT due to anti-HPA-5b is thought to be milder and have fewer complications than NAIT caused by

Semiautomation of platelet HPA-1a phenotyping by SPRCA and ELISA

An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and solid phase red cell adherence assay (SPRCA) were assessed for platelet HPA-1a typing in U well microplates. Both methods were partially automated by the use of the Tecan RSP 8051ID robotic sampler and the SLT 400 ATC plate reader with Soft2000 software. Pretreatment of the adherent platelets with chloroquine diphosphate or citric acid enabled anti-HPA-1a, even when contaminated with HLA class 1 antibodies, to be used for typing. Of 675 antenatal

Provision of HPA-1a (PlA1)-negative platelets for neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia: screening, testing, and transfusion protocol

with the platelet suspension immunofluorescence test using three anti-HPA-1a sera. Screening of 2600 plateletpheresis donor samples identified 40 HPA-1a-negative donors. Of these, 36 are active and are coded for recognition on the daily pheresis inventory sheet. Theoretically, assuming four donations per year and donors’ cooperation with scheduling, these 36 donors would enable us to have at least one HPA-1a-negative product available every day. In addition, a decision tree for patient

Neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia due to anti-HPA-2b (anti-Koa)

Most severe cases of neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (NAIT) are due to anti-HPA-1a (anti-PlA1) antibodies. We report a case of NAIT due to anti-HPA-2b that resulted in in utero intracranial hemorrhage.A 33-year-old G2P1A0 Caucasian woman had a routine ultrasound at 34 weeks. The fetus appeared to have a left hemispheric hematoma. IVIG, 1g/kg, was started immediately and administered weekly until delivery. One day after receiving the first dose of IVIG, fetal platelet count was 18 ×
