The specific antiplatelet GP IIb/IIIa and/or GP Ib/IX autoantibodies were analyzed by modified monoclonal antibody-specific immobilization of platelet antigens (MAIPA
), which was carried out as previously described in detail by Hou et al.
reported that measurement a combination of anti-GPIIb/IIIa antibodies and anti-GPIb antibodies by MAIPA
assay had a sensitivity of 66% for the diagnosis of primary ITP.8 Kuwana et al.
monoclonal antibody-specific immobilization of platelet antigens (MAIPA
): a new tool for the identification of platelet-reactive antibodies.
Incidence of autoantibodies to GPIIb/IIIa in chronic autoimmune thrombocytopenic purpura may be overestimated by the MAIPA

The HIPA and MAIPA
tests detect antibodies against a complex of heparin and platelet factor 4 but suffer from low diagnostic specificity and accuracy.
