occupy FcγIIa receptors, found on the cell surface of platelets, thereby activating the platelets and causing further expression of PF4 in a positive feedback loop mechanism (Figure 1).4 Platelet activation also causes the release of prothrombotic microparticles, platelet consumption, and thrombocytopenia. Activated platelet aggregation and their removal from circulation are believed to be responsible for thrombocytopenia and thrombosis.3,5 The multimolecular antibody complex can also… Expand
