BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES In addition to anti-D alloantibody, other antibodies such as anti-K antibody and anti-PP1Pk antibody have been reported to cause severe haemolytic disease of the newborn (HDN). HDN caused by anti-K results not only from destruction of red cells but also from suppression of erythropoiesis. Anti-PP1Pk has been associated with(More)
An IgG autoantibody, named anti-Wj, reacts with all random and most selected red cell samples. It does not agglutinate cells of Lu(a-b-) type caused by the In(Lu) dominant inhibitor gene, but cells of recessive Lu(a-b-) type are reactive. These data establish that synthesis of the Wj antigen is suppressed by the In(Lu) gene, but it is not a part of the(More)
A 54 year-old woman subjected to renal transplant with minor ABO incompatibility developed clinically severe anti-AB haemolytic anaemia. On the 13th day after transplantation the patient had: haemoglobin, 7.5 g/dL, unconjugated bilirubin, 393 mumol/L (23 mg/dL), and undetectable haptoglobin levels. Positive direct antihuman globulin test was found, and an(More)
