Characterization of the structural requirements for a carbohydrate based anticoagulant with a reduced risk of inducing the immunological type of heparin-associated thrombocytopenia

Greinacher, A. ; Alban, S. ; Dummel, V. ; Franz, Gerhard ; Mueller-Eckhardt, C.


HAT is the most frequent drug induced immune-thrombocytopenia. We recently identified multimolecular PF4/heparin complexes as the major antigen. In order to evaluate the structural requirements for formation of the antigenic complex, we chemically synthesized 13 glucan sulfates and used 5 heparin fractions (2.4-4.8 kD) and a synthesized pentasaccharide, representing the antithrombin III binding ...
