[Activation of oxidative metabolism of granulocytes and monocytes by IGG-coated platelets from patients with thrombocytopenia].

We have previously shown that monoclonal anti-T cell antibodies bound to their specific targets can trigger the activation of monocyte/macrophage oxidative metabolism through an Fc receptor-mediated interaction. The present study demonstrates that IgG coated platelets from patients with thrombocytopenia-associated diseases can induce a similar respiratory… CONTINUE READING
