Antibodies to Public Antigens: NGHA Experience

This is an update of a presentation I gave while working as Head of Transfusion Medicine for Saudi Arabian National Guard Affairs, King Abdulaziz Medical City at Riyadh. I used this strategy there and later at HMC Doha.

Fortunately we had access to rare antisera such as anti-Tja (anti-PP1Pk) which we could purchase from Diamed AG and its successor Biorad. I emphasize that we only sparingly used these rare antisera AFTER ruling out more common high-incidence antibodies.
