THROMBOSIS AND HEMOSTASIS Complement activation on platelet-leukocyte complexes and microparticles in enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli–induced hemolytic uremic syndrome

Abstract

Hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) is commonly associated with Shiga toxin (Stx)– producing Escherichia coli O157:H7 infection. This study examined patient samples for complement activation on leukocyteplatelet complexes and microparticles, as well as donor samples for Stx and lipopolysaccharide (O157LPS)–induced complement activation on plateletleukocyte… (More)
