In order to obtain an estimate of the frequency of platelet-specific and granulocyte-specific antibodies and of the effect of such antibodies on the platelet count and granulocyte count of the newborn infant, serum from 147 women in their second or subsequent pregnancies was tested. No platelet-specific antibodies were found but 29 of the women had granulocyte-specific antibodies and the corresponding infants had granulocyte counts which were significantly lower than those of infants without… CONTINUE READING
