BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Platelet function shows significant inheritance that is at least partially genetically controlled. There is also evidence that the platelet response is stable over time, but there are few studies that have assessed consistency of platelet function over months and years. We aimed to measure platelet function in platelet donors over… (More)

However, in some cases HDN is much milder than would be predicted from the ADCC value. We postulated… (More)
