Neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (NAIT), or fetal and neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia, is a disease that affects the fetus and newborns. The expression of certain antigens by fetal platelets, not expressed by the mother, may result in the destruction of fetal platelets by a maternal immune response.
For the investigation of fetal/neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (NAIT), heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT), other drug-related thrombocytopenias, autoimmune thrombocytopenia and thrombasthenias.
