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

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

Gene frequencies of the HPA-1 to 6 and Gov human platelet antigens in Thai blood donors

Human platelet alloantigens (HPA) are important in neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (NAIT), posttransfusion purpura (PTP), platelet transfusion refractoriness, passive alloimmune thrombocytopenia, and transplantation-associated alloimmune thrombocytopenia. Thus, HPA genotyping is essential in diagnosis and treatment. We analyzed HPA-1 to 6 and Gov alleles, using PCR with sequence specific primers (PCR-SSP) in 500 Thai blood donors who had been HLA class I antigen typed. HPA-4a was present

Rapid screening of platelet donors for PlA1 (HPA-1a) alloantigen using a solid-phase microplate immunoassay

PlA1 and PlA2 are alternative platelet-specific alloantigens in the PlA1 system. Sensitization to PlA1 underlies most cases of neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (NAIT) and posttransfusion purpura (PTP) in white populations. A rapid and simple method for large-scale platelet phenotyping is desirable for identifying expectant mothers at risk of allosensitization and for identifying PlA1-negative donors when transfusions are indicated for treatment of NAIT or PTP. We investigated the

Neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia due to HPA-3a antibodies: a case report

of the mother was HPA-1a/1a, 3b/ 3b, consistent with a diagnosis of anti-HPA-3a neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (NAIT). This case illustrates the increased sensitivity of the MAIPA technique for the detection of plateletspecific antibodies. We believe this to be the first serologically confirmed case of NAIT due to anti-HPA-3a to be reported in the republic of Ireland.

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 ×
