  1. 1. Identification and characterisation of SMIM1 variants determining the Vel blood group

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Mikael Kronborg Christophersen; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2017-02-22]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Blood groups; Vel blood group system; genetic variation; transcriptional regulation;

    Abstract : The Vel blood group antigen is present on red blood cells from all humans except rare Vel-negative individuals, who can form antibodies to Vel in response to transfusion or pregnancy. It was first described in 1952 as a high incidence antigen, while the molecular background was recently discovered to be a 17-bp deletion in Small Integral Membrane Protein 1, that causes a frame-shift mutation and abolishes SMIM1 expression, thus creating a Vel-negative phenotype.

  2. 2. Studies on the genetic basis of Pk, P and P1 blood group antigen expression

    University dissertation from Department of Laboratory Medicine, Lund University

    Author : Åsa Hellberg; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Immunologi; serology; serologi; transplantation; Immunology; SNP; phenotype; erythrocyte; blood group; glycosyltransferase;

    Abstract : The clinically important carbohydrate P/GLOB blood group systems and collection give rise to both common (P1, P2) and rare (p, P1k, P2k) blood group phenotypes. The associated antibodies are implicated in severe transfusion reactions and recurrent spontaneous abortions. READ MORE

  3. 3. Antibodies during pregnancy : Aspects on complications during pregnancy and complications related to transfusion

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Miodrag Palfi; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pregnancy; Thl; Th2; hernolytic disease of the newborn; anti-D; IgG subclasses; IgG transport; post-transfusion reactions; acute lung injury; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : The fetus acquires half of its genetic infonnation from the father and represents a foreign graft in pregnancy. The overall mechanisms contributing to immunologic tolerance and successful pregancy still are an enigma. Accumulating results of immunologic research, however, offer an explanation for many events in pregnancy. READ MORE

  4. 4. Automated serological technique with special emphasis on a solid phase test for red cell antibody detection in routine blood banking

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Immunology, Microbiology, Pathology and Infectious Diseases

    Author : Suzanne Sallander; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; solid phase; RBC antibody screening; alloimmunisation in pregnancy; automation;

    Abstract : Automated serological techniques for erythrocyte antigen typing and antibody screening are presented and evaluated in a larger number of samples and throughout routine processing. Both techniques are microplate-adapted with computerised sample identification, sample and reagent dispensing, and interpretation of results. READ MORE

  5. 5. Massive transfusion in relation to obstetric hemorrhage : with special attention to placenta accreta

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Science, Intervention and Technology

    Author : Lars Thurn; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The overall purpose of this thesis was to assess risk factors, incidences, and complications of massive blood transfusions in relation to obstetric hemorrhage postpartum. Obstetric hemorrhage requiring blood transfusion postpartum has recently shown an increasing trend in many high resource countries. READ MORE
