Human neutrophil alloantigens systems.
Molecular and biochemical characterization of neutrophil antigens have expanded the diagnostic tools by the introduction of genotyping techniques and immunoassays for antibody identification and further studies in the field of neutrophic immunology will facilitate the prevention and management of transfusion reactions and immune diseases caused by neutrophIL antibodies.

Gene frequencies of the HPA‐15 (Gov) platelet alloantigen system in Brazilians
Summary.  The HPA‐15 (Gov) alloantigen is a biallelic co‐dominant system on human platelets, and its allele HPA‐15a and HPA‐15b differ by an A→C single nucleotide polymorphism at nucleotide 2108 ofExpand
Gene frequencies of the HNA‐4a and ‐5a neutrophil antigens in Brazilian persons and a new polymerase chain reaction‐restriction fragment length polymorphism method for HNA‐5a genotyping
This data indicates that HNA‐4a has been linked to alloimmune neonatal neutropenia, but the Hna‐5a clinical significance is unclear. Expand
Ultrasound-guided femoral and sciatic nerve blocks in an anticoagulated patient. Case reports.
The objective of this article was to report two cases in which ultrasound-guided sciatic and femoral nerve blocks were performed in anticoagulated patients, and to report the safety of this technique in this condition has yet to be established. Expand
Gene Frequencies of the HNA-4a and -5a Neutrophil Antigens in Brazilians and a New Polymerase Chain Reaction-Restriction Fragment Length Polymorfism Method for HNA-5a Genotyping.
A novel PCR-restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) method digesting the PCR product with the enzyme Bsp1286 I for HNA-5a genotyping was developed, and the gene frequencies of this antigen were determined among 123 Brazilian blood donors and 114 Amazon Indians. Expand
