Webinar: The HLA-As and Bs of Platelet Refractoriness

Webinar Date: Tuesday, June 22, 2021 – 06:00 PM

Anti-HLA antibodies are a frequent cause of refractoriness to platelet transfusions, and as a result, blood banks are often called on to provide HLA-matched or HLA-compatible platelets. We will discuss current testing methodologies and platelet selection strategies, as well as newer approaches.
