The guinea pig sera containing antiplatelet antibodies
were collected in the sixth week.
Evidence for an immune mechanism may include rapid response to corticosteroids, positive Coombs tests, or the presence of antiplatelet antibodies
. Antiplatelet antibodies
can be difficult to detect by the usual tests and have a little correlation between their titer and the degree of thrombocytopenia.
 EDTA dependent pseudothrombocytopenia is a rare phenomenon (i.e., around 0.1% in general population) which is mostly due to the presence of EDTA-dependent antiplatelet antibodies
that react optimally between 0 [degrees]C to 4 [degrees]C, recognise the cytoadhesive receptors gpUb/IIIa, stimulate the expression of activation antigen, trigger activation of trypsin kinase, platelet agglutination and clumping in vitro.
The most common viral agents that cause infectious diseases in childhood can potentially cause a transient immunological deregulation that leads to the production of antiplatelet antibodies
and ITP with acute and self-limiting characteristics.
Demonstration of serum antiplatelet antibodies
in experimental acute canine ehrlichiosis.
detected by the MAIPA assay in newly diagnosed immune thrombocytopenia are associated with chronic outcome and higher risk of bleeding.
(5) However, he was not in reaction and there were no antiplatelet antibodies
or evidence of an immune etiology for the thrombocytopenia.
Prevalence of antiphospholipid and antiplatelet antibodies
in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected Chilean patients.
Antithyroid antibodies and antiplatelet antibodies
In virus-associated ITPs, antiplatelet antibodies
or virus antibody-immune complex has been associated with platelet destruction (75).
