Aim of the webinar
The objective of this webinar was to discuss the clinical relevance of antibodies of undetermined specificity (AUS) as well as to explore the laboratorial factors that can help to identify AUS potentially associated with post-transfusion hemolytic reactions.
The criteria for classifying RBC antibodies as AUSs strategies to transfuse patients presenting with these antibodies was also discussed.
