Mechanisms

Four mechanisms of drug-induced immune antibodies are thought to be associated with red blood cell sensitization and a positive direct antiglobulin test (DAT). These mechanisms are:

  • Drug adsorption
  • Immune complex
  • Membrane modification (non-immune adsorption of proteins)
  • Induction of autoimmunity
