Plasma autoantibodies against platelet glycoprotein IIb/IIIa from patients with autoimmune thrombocytopenic purpura may recognize different antigenic determinants.

Abstract

Autoantibodies against platelet glycoprotein (GP) GPIIb/IIIa have been demonstrated in patients with autoimmune thrombocytopenic purpura. Recently, it has been shown that plasma autoantibodies from some patients bind to the cytoplasmic domain of GPIIIa. Our aim was to evaluate further the binding specificity of these plasma autoantibodies. From 7 patients… (More)
