Reduced red blood cell destruction by antibody fragments

Antibodies to blood group antigens can cause immune RBC destruction directly (extravascular destruction) or indirectly through subsequent complement activation (intravascular hemolysis). The Fc portion of the IgG antibody is responsible for the effector functions of immune RBC destruction. We hypothesized that sensitization of RBCs with blood group antigen–specific IgG antibodies lacking their Fc portion would escape from the recipient’s immune system, allowing for a longer survival

Review: immune thrombocytopenic purpura: an update for immunohematologists

Immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is an acquired disease in which autoantibodies to platelets cause their sequestration and destruction by mononuclear macrophages, principally in the spleen. If increased production of platelets by megakaryocytes does not compensate for platelet destruction, the number of circulating platelets decreases (thrombocytopenia), resulting in a characteristic bleeding tendency (purpura). While most children with the disease experience a relatively short and benign

Various laboratory parameters including quantitative hemoglobin fraction analyses were used to monitor for increased RBC destruction. The MMA reactivity of the patient’s anti-Jsb increased from 2.3

Review: complement receptor 1 therapeutics for prevention of immune hemolysis

The complement system plays a crucial role in fighting infections and is an important link between the innate and adaptive immune responses. However, inappropriate complement activation can cause tissue damage, and it underlies the pathology of many diseases. In the transfusion medicine setting, complement sensitization of RBCs can lead to both intravascular and extravascular destruction. Moreover, complement deficiencies are associated with autoimmune disorders, including autoimmune hemolytic

Severe intravascular hemolysis due to autoantibodies stimulated by blood transfusion

Autoantibodies may cause severe hemolytic anemia, but only rarely are they the cause of a hemolytic transfusion reaction due to the destruction of transfused allogeneic blood. In two patients, autoantibody was detected shortly after blood transfusion. The first case was a D-negative patient who produced an autoanti-Ce and subsequently developed hemoglobinuria and hyperbilirubinemia. The second case was a patient who developed an autoanti-Wrb that caused severe hemolysis that resulted in death.

Case report: a pregnant woman with immune thrombocytopenic purpura and unusual red cell antibodies

Maternal immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) may lead to fetal platelet destruction. This process is mediated by IgG platelet autoantibodies that cross the placenta. In this case, not only were platelet autoantibodies present, but red cell alloantibodies anti-E, anti-M, and anti-He were also present. Anti-E, present as an IgG antibody, crossed the placenta, but did not cause clinical problems in the E+ newborn, other than possible hyperbilirubinemia that was treated by phototherapy.

Strong serological reactivity, a positive monocyte monolayer assay, and immunoglobulin subclass determination as IgG3 all indicate possible ability to destroy red cells. A 51Cr-labeled red cell survival study was not done as the patient did not require red cell transfusions but may be recommended

The destruction of waste polymers in the conditions of deposition at landfills is quite slow and this process is poorly understood. There are several types of destruction of polymeric waste placed on landfills: mechanical, photo-oxidative and biological. The degradation products of polymeric materials serve as the basis for the formation of a number of new chemical compounds, including toxic ones. Some of them (about 10%) remain

Possible suppression of fetal erythropoiesis by the Kell blood group antibody anti-Kpa

Antibodies to antigens in the Kell blood group system are usually immunoglobulin G, and, notoriously, anti-K, anti-k, and anti-Kpa can cause severe hemolytic transfusion reactions, as well as severe hemolytic disease of the fetus and newborn (HDFN). It has been shown that the titer of anti-K does not correlate with the severity of HDFN because, in addition to immune destruction of red blood cells (RBCs), anti-K causes suppression of erythropoiesis in the fetus, which can result in severe anemia

Effect of enzymes on and chemical modifications of high-frequency red cell antigens

Enzyme or chemical modification of intact red cells results in the destruction of some blood group antigens. The pattern of reactions of an antibody with red cells treated with various proteinases, with sialidase, and with the disulfide bond-reducing agent 2-aminoethylisothiouronium bromide (AET) can aid in antibody identification. This information can prove particularly beneficial with antibodies to antigens of very high frequency, where antigen-negative cells may be difficult to obtain

Community gardens as pathways to community resilience? Reflections on a pilot study in Adelaide, South Australia

Cities across the world are facing increasing challenges from the impacts of urbanisation, pollution and climate change. Green spaces and urban vegetation are at ongoing risk of destruction or removal. New residential developments rarely plan for or provide gardens. Nonetheless, the need to maintain urban green spaces is more important than ever. This paper discusses the role of community gardens and whether or not they have a role to play in enhancing community resilience to issues such as

The article presents the results of the investigations of turbocharger shaft bearing using different kinds of lubrication conditions (dry friction and lubrication with different kind of oils). In particular, the wear of the turbocharger shaft surface was evaluated. One of the most frequent failures is the seizure of the turbocharger shaft in the slide bearing, causing its rotation, which leads to destruction of the assembly and costly repairs. On the basis of the conducted tests, it was found

Indicators of clinically significant red cell antibodies produced by sensitized lymphocytes in liver transplant patients

It has been documented that transplanted livers can carry sensitized lymphocytes that subsequently produce red cell antibodies. We evaluated immunohematological variables in liver donors and recipients for indicators that might be predictive of serological red blood cell (RBC) destruction mediated by the passenger lymphocytes. Organ donor sera with antibody scores greater than ( > ) 60 correlated with a positive direct antiglobulin test (DAT) and need for increased RBC transfusion in liver

with the 51Cr recovery in 11 of 12 subjects. One anti-K1 that caused moderately accelerated red cell destruction (60% recovery at 24 hours) had a negative MMA. Four control subjects with no atypical antibodies had normal autologous RBC 51Cr recoveries and were negative by the MMA technique. The MMA test can be a reliable predictor of in vivo antibody behavior and an acceptable alternative to 51Cr recovery studies.

Antibodies to Cromer antigens are rarely encountered, although there is evidence that the antibodies may cause accelerated destruction of transfused RBCs. There is no risk of HDN associated with Cromer system antibodies because the placenta is a rich source of fetally derived DAF, which is thought to adsorb the antibodies.
