Human platelets suspended in autologous plasma do not respond to nonspecific immune complexes as do platelet suspensions from rabbits and dogs. However, platelets of all three species do undergo aggregation and the release reaction when exposed to antibodies directed against platelets. Antithymocyte globulin (ATG) contains such antibodies, apparently(More)
Human platelets labeled with 51Cr were used to determine the contribution made by platelet lysis to the platelet release reaction and platelet aggregation induced by rabbit antihuman platelet serum (APS) and equine antihuman thymocyte globulin (ATG). Platelets were tested in both plasma (PRP) and non-plasma containing media. Antibodies directed against(More)
