Human anti-factor VIII antibodies: epitope localization and inhibitory function.


Recombinant polypeptides derived from coagulation factor VIII (fVIII) have been used to determine the epitopes and characteristics of human pathologic anti-fVIII antibodies. The results of immunoprecipitation assays indicate that 70% of patient plasmas contain antibodies to the A2 as well as the C2 domains of the fVIII protein. The same polypeptides were… (More)
