Human Platelet Antigen (HPA) Database
This database serves as the principal site for cataloging the current list of human platelet allo-antigens (HPA). To submit data and obtain confirmation and numbering of newly discovered HPA by the International Platelet Immunology Nomenclature Committee of the International Society of Blood Transfusion (ISBT), please use the official forms and instructions on this page.
Alloantibodies against HPA are the cause of several immune platelet disorders, including fetal and neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (FNAIT) and platelet transfusion refractoriness (PTR). Detection and identification of HPA alloantibodies is critical in making a proper diagnosis and for ensuring appropriate patient care.
