BACKGROUND: Fetomaternal alloimmune thrombocytopenia occurs when the mother produces antibodies against a platelet alloantigen that the fetus has inherited from the father. A consequence of this can be a reduced number of platelets (thrombocytopenia) in the fetus, which can result in bleeding whilst in the womb or shortly after birth. In severe cases this bleeding may lead to long-lasting disability or death. Antenatal management of fetomaternal alloimmune thrombocytopenia centres on preventing severe thrombocytopenia in the fetus. Available management options include administration of intravenous immunoglobulins or corticosteroids to the mother or intrauterine transfusion of antigen compatible platelets to the fetus. All options are costly and need to be assessed in terms of potential risk and benefit to both the mother and an individual fetus. OBJECTIVES: To determine the optimal antenatal treatment of fetomaternal alloimmune thrombocytopenia to prevent fetal and neonatal haemorrhage and death. SEARCH

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Serological evaluation of maternal sera for platelet antibodies in suspected fetal/neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (FNAITP) discloses in only approximately 30% of individuals a platelet-specific antibody. Transfusion-induced alloimmunization against human platelet antigen-15 (HPA-15) has been reported to be about as common as against HPA-5, the second most common platelet antibody. Thus, anti-HPA-15 may also contribute significantly to yet-unclear cases of FNAITP.. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this retrospective analysis, we provide data on maternal platelet antibodies from 309 mothers who delivered an offspring with suspected FNAITP.. RESULTS: Genotyping maternal and paternal samples (together n = 573) revealed a gene frequency of 0.496 for HPA-15a and a gene frequency of 0.504 for HPA-15b. HPA-15 antibodies were detected in 2% of all samples. Anti-HPA-15a and -15b were detected in two and three samples, respectively. One serum reacted equally with HPA-15a and -15b ...

Platelets are small blood cells well-recognized as being essential to stop bleeding. To perform their functions, platelets express majority integrin heterodimer αIIbβ3, which synchronize with other receptors on the surface, to form a blood clot. In fetal and neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (FNAIT), paternally-inherited platelet receptors in fetus are identified as foreign antigens by the mothers immune system during pregnancy, generating anti-fetal platelet antigen antibodies that target fetus cells. The life threatening consequences include severe bleeding (e.g. intracranial hemorrhage), and/or impaired development. In our animal model of aΙΙbmediated FNAIT, our lab interestingly observed evidences of antibody depleting fetal αIIb-expressing hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) and blocking their migration, which disrupts fetal liver and bone marrow development. Poor embryonic development causing death (miscarriage) may explain for why there is a paucity of anti-αIIb mediated FNAIT ...

Neonatal Alloimmune Thrombocytopenia is caused when the mothers and babys platelets become incompatible, a condition known as platelet alloimmunization. To understand platelet alloimmunization, you must first understand about different platelet types. Platelet types are defined by antigens, substances or factors that exist on the surface of the cell. The most common of these is the HPA-1 antigen, which is present in 98% of people. These patients are referred to as HPA-1 positive. When their blood is tested, the test will return as HPA-1a/1a or HPA-1a/1b. About 2% of the population is HPA-1 negative; these patients are called HPA-1 negative. A blood test on one of these patients will return as HPA-1b/1b.. There are other platelet antigen systems found in humans that are associated with Neonatal Alloimmune Thrombocytopenia, including HPA-3, HPA-4 (present in people of Asian descent), HPA-5, HPA-9 and HPA-15. If an antigen is present, the person is called positive for the antigen; if it is ...

There have been considerable advances in the clinical and laboratory diagnosis of alloimmune thrombocytopenia (AIT), and its postnatal and antenatal management. The antenatal management of AIT has been particularly problematic, because severe haemorrhage occurs as early as 16 weeks gestation and there is no non-invasive investigation that reliably predicts the severity of AIT in utero. The strategies for antenatal treatment have included the use of serial platelet transfusions that, while effective, are invasive and associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Maternal therapy involving the administration of intravenous immunoglobulin and/or steroids is also effective and associated with fewer risks to the fetus. Significant recent progress has involved refinement of maternal treatment, stratifying it according to the likely severity of AIT based on the history in previous pregnancies. However, the ideal antenatal treatment, which is effective without causing significant side-effects to the

The Blood Services Platelet Laboratory has been functioning as the national reference laboratory since 1970. We examine platelet dysfunctions and the immunological and hereditary causes of thrombocytopenia. Our laboratory staff is highly trained and specialized in the special features of platelet disorder testing in particular. The methods require profound special expertise and, as a rule, they are not made in other laboratories in Finland. Our range of testing includes fetal and neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (NAIT/FMAIT), platelet function testing, membrane glycoprotein assays, auto- and alloimmune thrombocytopenia tests and heparin-induced thrombocytopenia tests. The available tests are described in the laboratory manual ...
After investigations post birth, we found that Raife only had platelets of 8! This meant our beautiful little man was whisked away to intensive care needing special care and transfusions. An MRI scan determined a parents worst nightmare- he had lost the majority of his right temporal lobe due to a significant bleed to the brain as a result of his lack of platelets. Even worse, we then found out that the bleed was due to a rare disorder that we as parents have called NAIT (neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia) whilst in utero, my body was attacking his platelets a very rare and dangerous blood disorder ...

Neither PLA2R nor THSD7A were widely known as podocyte proteins before their description as target autoantigens in MN, and the biologic function of these proteins within the podocyte or elsewhere is not clear. Although the general paradigm of podocyte injury in MN has been felt to be because of complement activated by autoantibody-antigen deposits,56 it is conceivable that either or both autoantibodies could also interrupt biologic function. There is precedent for this with regard to antibodies to both NEP in fetomaternal alloimmune MN and megalin in Heymann nephritis. Kerjaschki and colleagues have shown that anti-megalin antibodies block one or more ligand-binding sites, disrupting the internalization of apolipoproteins and leading to their accumulation in the GBM, lipid peroxidation, and further damage to the GBM.57 IgG1 antibodies to NEP can inhibit enzymatic activity, and may lead to persistence of vasoactive peptides responsible for the ischemic vascular phenotype occasionally seen in ...
Background. Maternal alloantibodies against HPA-1a can cross placenta, opsonize foetal platelets, and induce neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (NAIT). In a study of 100, 448 pregnant women in Norway during 1995-2004, 10.6% of HPA-1a negative women had detectable anti-HPA-1a antibodies. Design and Methods. A possible correlation between the maternal ABO blood group phenotype, or underlying genotype, and severe thrombocytopenia in the newborn was investigated. Results. We observed that immunized women with blood group O had a lower risk of having a child with severe NAIT than women with group A; 20% with blood group O gave birth to children with severe NAIT, compared to 47% among the blood group A mothers (relative risk 0.43; 95% CI 0.25-0.75). Conclusion. The risk of severe neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia due to anti-HPA-1a antibodies is correlated to maternal ABO types, and this study indicates that the observation is due to genetic properties on the maternal side ...
Today we will be discussing fetal and neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia, also referred to as NAIT, which affects about 1 in 1,000 births. NAIT is caused by maternal alloantibodies to specific platelet antigens, usually human platelet antigen 1a also referred to as HPA-1a. These antigens may be inherited from the father but are absent in the mother. Only 2% of women are HPA-1a negative and at risk to produce these alloantibodies which can lead to fetal thrombocytopenia.. Dr. Bussel, who wrote an Editorial on the subject, discusses the morbidity and mortality associated with NAIT.. If the platelets are low enough, there is a serious risk of bleeding. When the fetal platelet get low enough, then the fetus may bleed in the brain and most of the bleeding in the brain that happens in fetuses and neonates affected by NAIT, occurs in utero, not after birth.. Currently, there are no screening guidelines to identify mothers and fetuses that are at risk for NAIT. Therefore, it is usually diagnosed ...

NORCROSS, Ga, February 17, 2017 - Immucor, Inc., a global leader in transfusion and transplantation diagnostics, today announced the launch of Pak Lx™, a qualitative Luminex®-based immunoassay that brings high-definition to platelet antibody testing. While the assay is CE marked and has previously been available in international markets, Pak Lx is now available as a research use only (RUO) kit in the United States.. Platelets express a variety of polymorphic proteins that may become targets for antibodies as a result of pregnancy or transfusion. The presence of antibodies that bind to platelet glycoproteins is associated with life-threatening bleeding disorders, such as refractoriness to platelet transfusions, post-transfusion purpura (PTP), and fetal and neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (FNAIT). The Pak Lx assay may be used to detect and differentiate IgG antibodies to Human Platelet Antigens (HPA-1, HPA-2, HPA-3, HPA-4, HPA-5), Glycoprotein (GPIV), and Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA Class ...

CD109 (Cluster of Differentiation 109) is a human gene. CD109 is a GPI-linked cell surface antigen expressed by CD34+ acute myeloid leukemia cell lines, T-cell lines, activated T lymphoblasts, endothelial cells, and activated platelets (Lin et al., 2002). In addition, the platelet-specific Gov antigen system, implicated in refractoriness to platelet transfusion, neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia, and posttransfusion purpura, is carried by CD109 (Kelton et al., 1990; Lin et al., 2002).[supplied by OMIM] Cluster of differentiation GRCh38: Ensembl release 89: ENSG00000156535 - Ensembl, May 2017 GRCm38: Ensembl release 89: ENSMUSG00000046186 - Ensembl, May 2017 Human PubMed Reference:.

Glycoprotein Ibalpha (GP Ibα; CD 42b; hereafter GPIBA) is a component of the cell surface receptor for the von Willebrand factor (vWf) on platelets. Immunizations against various platelet surface antigens play a major role in neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia and in post-transfusion purpura. Only one antigenic polymorphism in GPIBA has thus far been established: the HPA-2 (Ko) alloantigen system. To screen other polymorphisms in GPIBA systematically, we analyzed the whole coding sequence of theGPIBA gene in 50 Finnish blood donors using the single-strand conformation polymorphism method. In addition to the known polymorphisms, we detected three others. Sequencing of the gene segments carrying the new polymorphisms revealed that none of them changed the predicted amino acid sequence. Polymorphism designatedRS was located five base pairs upstream from the initiation codon at position 3064 and had the gene frequency of 16% forR and 84% forS, respectively, in the Finnish population, and it was

BACKGROUND - The single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs5918 in the ITGB3 gene defines the human platelet antigen-1 (HPA-1) system encoding a Leu (HPA-1a) or Pro (HPA-1b) at position 33. HPA-1 antibodies are clinically the most relevant in the Caucasoid population, but detection currently requires alpha(IIb)beta3 integrin from the platelets of HPA-genotyped donors.. OBJECTIVES - We set out to define the beta3 integrin domains required for HPA-1a antibody binding and produce recombinant soluble beta3 peptides for HPA-1 antibody detection.. METHODS - We designed two sets (1a and 1b) of four soluble beta3 domain-deletion peptides (deltaSDL, deltabetaA, PSIHybrid, PSI), informed by crystallography studies and computer modeling. The footprints of three human HPA-1a-specific phage antibodies were defined by analyzing binding patterns to the beta3 peptides and canine platelets, and models of antibody-antigen interfaces were derived. Specificity and sensitivity for HPA-1a detection were assessed using ...
Platelets are the cellular components of the blood coagulation system. Among the proteins found at the surface of platelet plasma membrane, GPIIb-IIIa integrin harbors the human platelet antigens HPA-1a/b, the most clinically important platelet antigens. These antigens result from a leukine-proline polymorphism at position 33 of the GPIIb-IIIa integrin. About 2% of Caucasian women are homozygous (HPA-1b/1b) and risk forming antibodies against the integrin of the fetus. Such antibodies may destroy fetal platelets and lead to neonatal/fetal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (NAIT).1 Anti-platelet alloimmunization has an estimated incidence of 1 in 1,000 pregnancies and may cause in utero cerebral bleeds or ventriculomegaly.2-4 Thus, screening and identification of maternal alloantibodies are critical in early detection of such alloimmunization.5. Up to now, all methods for detecting auto- or alloantibodies directed at platelets, such as monoclonal antibody immobilization of platelet antigen assay ...

Thrombocytopenia, encountered frequently among patients with HCV-related chronic hepatitis and cirrhosis, is usually aggravated during IFN-based antiviral therapy. In several large-scale clinical trials, the incidence of severe on-treatment thrombocytopenia was 3-5% among all patients with chronic hepatitis C [2-4]. In the current study, severe thrombocytopenia occurred more frequently (12.8%) in patients with baseline thrombocytopenia. Roomer et al. (2010) documented that patients with baseline thrombocytopenia were vulnerable to severe thrombocytopenia [5]. This group also found that severe thrombocytopenia was significantly associated with bleeding events. In the present study, severe thrombocytopenia did occur in some patients during antiviral therapy, but it was not followed by mortality or major morbidity. Instead, severe thrombocytopenia was associated with higher rates of premature discontinuation of therapy.. Thrombocytopenia is one of the extrahepatic manifestations of HCV infection. ...

Tetraspanins function as molecular organizers of multi-protein complexes by assembling primary complexes of a relatively low mass into extensive networks involved in cellular signalling. In this paper, we summarize our studies performed on the tetraspanin D6.1A/CO-029/TM4SF3 expressed by rat carcinoma cells. Primary complexes of D6.1A are almost indistinguishable from complexes isolated with anti-CD9 antibody. Indeed, both tetraspanins directly associate with each other and with a third tetraspanin, CD81. Moreover, FPRP (prostaglandin F2α receptor-regulatory protein)/EWI-F/CD9P-1), an Ig superfamily member that has been described to interact with CD9 and CD81, is also a prominent element in D6.1A complexes. Primary complexes isolated with D6.1A-specific antibody are clearly different from complexes containing the tetraspanin CD151. CD151 is found to interact only with D6.1A if milder conditions, i.e. lysis with LubrolWX instead of Brij96, are applied to disrupt cellular membranes. CD151 ...
The current system of human platelet antigen (HPA) nomenclature, adopted in 1990, is overseen by the Platelet Nomenclature Committee of the ISBT and the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis.

Flere humane blodplateantigener (HPA) spiller viktige roller ved ulike immunbetingede trombocytopenier. Antistoffer rettet mot HPA 1a forårsaker de fleste og de mest alvorlige tilfellene av NAIT (1). HPA 1 sitter på integrin β3 (GPIIIa), som sammen med integrin αIIb (GPIIb) danner blodplatenes fibrinogen reseptor. For hvert HPA system er en person enten homozygot for et av allelene (HPA 1aa eller HPA 1bb), eller heterozygot (HPA 1ab). Det mest vanlige allele har fått navnet a, mens det mindre vanlige allele har fått navnet b. Blant kaukasiere uttrykker 98 prosent HPA 1a allelet, og kun 2 prosent er HPA 1a negative (homozygote HPA 1bb). Forskjellen på integrin β3 som uttrykker HPA 1a eller 1b, er kun på én aminosyre.. De to prosentene som ikke uttrykker HPA 1a, kan risikere en immunisering dersom de eksponeres for paternelt HPA 1a uttrykt hos fosteret/barnet. Ti prosent av de gravide som er HPA 1a negative (HPA 1bb), danner antistoff mot barnets blodplater (anti-HPA 1a antistoff) og ...

Results: During the study period, 2667 patients were admitted to the NICU and 395 (14%) had thrombocytopenia during hospitalization. The rate of IVH was 7.3%. Multiple logistic regression analysis showed that although lower platelet counts were associated with a higher IVH rate, the effects of respiratory distress syndrome (RDS), sepsis, and patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) were more prominent than the degree of thrombocytopenia. Thirty patients (7%) received PT, and these patients showed a significantly higher mortality rate than that of their non-PT counterparts (p , 0.001). In addition, it was found that the use of PMI-based criteria for PT in our patients would reduce the rate of PT by 9.5% (2/21 ...
Fetal and neonatal allo-immune thrombocytopenia (FNAIT) is considered as a rare disease due to the incidence (1/1000-1/2000 births). The major complication of severe thrombocytopenia is bleeding and particularly intra-cranial hemorrhage and neurologic sequelae following. Serology and molecular biology developments have reconfigured the platelet immunology diagnosis. Anti-HPA-1a allo-immunisation is responsible for more than 80% FNAIT cases with a high recurrence rate of severe bleeding complications. Therapeutic management has changed over the coming years from an invasive concept associating fetal blood sampling and in utero platelet transfusion to a non invasive treatment by intravenous immunoglobulins injection (IVIg ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - An evaluation of the neonatal immune system using a Listeria infection model. AU - Byun, Hyun Jung. AU - Jung, Woon Won. AU - Lee, Jong Bae. AU - Chung, Hee Yong. AU - Sul, Donggeun.

N2 - Background: T helper 1 (Th1)/T helper 2 (Th2)-biased cytokine regulation may be another reason that neonates are much more susceptible to infectious disease than are adults. Objectives: We attempted to determine the ability of neonatal mice to direct the Th1 phenotype against Listeria monocytogenes (LM), because LM, an intracellular Gram-positive bacterium, induces profound cellular immunity by Th1 cells in vivo. Methods: In order to determine whether neonatal mice evidence strong Th1 activity during LM infection, neonatal mice were compared with adult mice with regard to susceptibility to LM, cytotoxic T lymphocyte activity, and cytokine profiles. Neonatal gene ...
Ooks 3 Kings 0 PENHOLD - Consistency on offence has been the biggest problem for the RDC Kings this season.. That proved t0 be costly once again as the Kings dropped a 3-0 decision to the NAIT Ooks in Alberta Colleges Mens Hockey League play at the Penhold Regional Multiplex Saturday.. We had a number of quality chances, the same as last night (a 4-1 loss at NAIT), but didnt convert, said Kings head coach Trevor Keeper. We were even in every statistic in shots, shots from home plate and possession but they have a couple of high end snipers we dont have.. One of thsoe is Tanner Dunkle, who notched his league-leading 15 goal of the season 48 seconds into the third period to break the scoreless tie.. The Kings had all kinds of opportunities of their own, but either couldnt corral a bouncing puck or beat Ooks netminder Brendan Jensen.. Hes the No. 1 goaltender in the league and has played every game for them, said Keeper. We had our chances, but just couldnt put it past him.. The Kings ...

Hello,Im new in this world. Well I bought my set a year ago (in the beginning it sounded like heaven than you notice haven is far an expensive :doh: ). So Im looking for an upgrade.My dealer says its better to start with the amp its cheaper. Upgrading my 683s would be way more expensive....(803s)Also he says my problem would come from the amp.

Thrombocytopenia occurs when you dont have enough blood platelets in your blood. It may not be dangerous for most people with it but severe form of it leads to difficulty in stopping the bleeding after an injury.
We have two distinct assay platforms for thrombocytopenia that assess whether compounds have an effect on the production or the destruction of platelets.
