Abstract Two units of red blood cells (RBCs) were ordered for a 44-year-old Caucasian woman with renal failure and cancer. Pretransfusion testing performed at the regional reference laboratory had revealed the presence of an antibody reactive with all cells at the indirect antiglobulin test (LAT) but apparently nonreactive by a prewarmed IAT. The patient’s RBCs were direct antiglobulin test negative. Adsorption of the serum with rabbit erythrocyte stroma or with allogeneic RBCs at 4°C reduced… 
Red cell antibodies – clinical significance or just noise?
TLDR
Antibody detection (screening) can be optimized by designing protocols appropriate to the population to be screened, utilizing knowledge of the characteristics of red cell antibodies, understanding of the principles, strengths and limitations of the methods/technologies validated for use, and ongoing quality assurance of testing.
Clinical significance of antibodies to antigens in the Raph, John Milton Hagen, I, Globoside, Gill, Rh-associated glycoprotein, FORS, JR, LAN, Vel, CD59, and Augustine blood group systems
TLDR
Information on the clinical significance of antibodies to antigens in the Raph, John Milton Hagen, I, Globoside, Gill, Rh-associated glycoprotein, FORS, JR, LAN, Vel, CD59, and Augustine blood group systems is reviewed.
Quantitation of red cell–bound IgG, IgA, and IgM in patients with autoimmune hemolytic anemia and blood donors by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay
TLDR
The enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay using ether eluates is a sensitive method for quantitating RBC autoantibodies in patients with AIHA as well as immunoglobulins bound to RBCs in healthy individuals.
Disruption of SMIM 1 causes the Vel S blood type
TLDR
The biochemical and genetic basis of the Vel blood group antigen, which has been a vexing mystery for decades, is reported and two highly specific DNA-based tests for rapid Vel genotyping are developed, which can be easily integrated into blood group genotypesing platforms.
An acute hemolytic transfusion reaction caused by an anti‐P1 that reacted at 37°C
TLDR
HTRs due to anti‐P1 have rarely been reported and there is only one report (from 1945) of an acute HTR due toAnti-P1.
Optimal prewarming conditions for Rh antibody testing
TLDR
This study was conducted to determine PW conditions that optimized Rh antibody detection and concluded that prewarming can adversely affect the detection of warm‐reactive antibodies.
Disruption of SMIM1 causes the Vel− blood type
TLDR
The biochemical and genetic basis of the Vel blood group antigen, which has been a vexing mystery for decades, is reported and two highly specific DNA‐based tests for rapid Vel genotyping, which can be easily integrated into blood group genotypesing platforms are developed.
Weakening or loss of antibody reactivity after prewarm technique
BACKGROUND:  The prewarm (PW) technique is a popular approach to determine whether cold antibodies are reacting at 37°C or to detect potentially clinically significant antibodies in the presence of
Anti‐Vel reactivity diminished by adsorption with rabbit RBC stroma
BACKGROUND : An anti‐Vel, nearly missed in antibody identification studies, and the effect of a commercially available rabbit RBC stroma (RESt, Immucor) adsorptions on eight anti‐Vel sera are
The Polymorphism of SMIM1 Gene in Chinese Dividuals
TLDR
The allele at intron 3 position 193 was the most frequent mutant allele found in the Chinese population and Vel antigen deficiency may not cause problems in Chinese patients with hematological diseases and RBC autoantibodies.
