abstract

  • Our data demonstrate that patients with gestational thrombocytopenia had surprisingly high levels of platelet-associated immunoglobulin despite mild thrombocytopenia. Comparison of a relatively large number of patients with idiopathic immune thrombocytopenia and gestational thrombocytopenia indicates that women with idiopathic immune thrombocytopenia cannot be distinguished from those with gestational thrombocytopenia by means of one or more of the prototypic platelet antiglobulin tests currently in use. Our preliminary data with glycoprotein-specific assays indicate that they may be more useful.
