Have you heard of platelet antigen alloimmunization during pregnancy?
About 2% of pregnant women are at risk of platelet antigen incompatibility between mother and fetus, which leads to platelet alloimmunization. Platelet alloimmunization occurs when the mother's body forms antibodies in reaction to antigens that are different from her own. This may lead to fetal/neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia. HPA-1a antigen testing is the first step to finding out whether platelet alloimmunization is possible or not..
As part of PREVFNAIT research project financed by Polish-Norwegian scientific co-operation the test is now available free for women from Warsaw and surrounding areas who are in 8-20 gestation week.
