My research is related to transfusion immunology with a focus on platelet transfusions. I investigate ways to improve platelet transfusions for patients with anti-platelet antibodies.
Platelets made HLA deficient by acid treatment aggregate normally and escape destruction by complement and phagocytes in the presence of HLA antibodies.
