CEU COURSE: Hh, Lewis, P1PK, Globoside, and I

This presentation describes the carbohydrate-based blood group systems, Hh, Lewis, P1PK, Globoside and I.  Many antibodies to antigens in these systems are naturally-occurring, primarily cold-reactive antibodies that are generally not clinically relevant.  Some, however, can cause severe intravascular hemolysis.  Detection / identification methods and the clinical significance of these antibodies will be highlighted after a discussion of the antigens in each system.
