From Drugs to Bugs: A Cross-Section of Hemolytic Anemia

www.hematology.org [cached]

Dr. George Garratty of the American Red Cross Blood Service, Southern California Region, will review the drugs involved and mechanisms of DIIHA. In addition to reviewing well-described drug-dependent and drug-independent mechanisms, Dr. Garratty will also discuss a more recently identified mechanism of hemolysis: non-immune protein absorption (NIPA). In this case, modification of the red blood cell membrane surface by pharmacologic agents leads to coating of the red blood cells non-specifically with immunoglobulins or other plasma proteins ultimately leading to hemolysis. Dr. Garratty will also provide some clinical pearls regarding specific offending agents; as he notes in the ASH Education Book, "Cefotetan represents more than 50 percent of the DIIHA that you are likely to encounter."
