   Review platelet morphology and its role in
    primary hemostasis
   Understand the pathophysiology of the major
    inherited platelet defects, including: Bernard-
    Soulier syndrome, Glanzmann’s
    thrombasthenia, and the storage pool defects
   Understand the laboratory methods used to
    diagnose and classify the hereditary platelet
    function defects
    Primary Hemostasis: The Platelet
   Anuclear discoid cell (3-5 microns) arising from
    megakaryocytes in bone marrow
   4-5 day maturation, 9-10 day life span
   Bilamellar membrane contains multiple
    invaginations with an open canalicular system:
       Attached to intracellular dense tubular system,
        forming an interconnecting network (membrane
        complex) throughout the cell
       Facilitates secretion of granules
            Platelet organelles
 Mitochondria, golgi, ribosomes,
  peroxisomes, lysosomes
 Two platelet-specific storage granules:
     Alpha granules: Platelet Factor 4 (heparin
      binding chemokine), PDGF, fibrinogen,
      fibronectin, plasminogen activator inhibitor I
      (PAI I), Factors V, VIII,and vWF
     Dense bodies: histamine, epinephrine,
      serotonin, ADP, calcium
         Platelet cytoskeleton

 Composed of cross-linked actin filaments
  coating the inner surface of the lipid
 Regulates the shape of the resting platelet
 Interacts with transmembrane receptors
 Platelet activation, intracellular protein
  phosphorylation cascade and subsequent
  contraction leads to extrusion of platelet
              Platelet morphology
   Numerous G-protein receptors or adhesion
    receptors (integrins) are present on the cell
       transmembrane heterodimers composed of alpha and
        beta subunits, responsible for adhesion and signal
       Glycoproteins are designated I (large) to IX (small); a
        and b were added when electrophoretic techniques
        allowed for resolution of single bands to separate
            Glycoprotein receptors

 GP Ib-V-IX; complex of four gene
  products, serves as a receptor for vWF;
  adhesion; Bernard-Soulier
 GP IIb-IIIa; most abundant, recognizes
  four adhesive receptors: fibrinogen,
  fibronectin, vitronectin, and vWF;
  aggregation; Glanzmann’s
 Others:
       GP Ia, IIa; GP VI: collagen receptors
          Primary hemostasis
   Extremely dynamic, complicated, and
    continuous interaction between vessel,
    platelet, and plasma components

   Adhesion, Activation (Secretion),
   Vascular injury exposes the pro-coagulant
    components of the sub-endothelial extracellular
    matrix: collagen, proteoglycans, and fibronectin
   Platelets are exposed to these components in a
    rolling fashion
   vWF acts as an adhesion bridge between the
    platelet GP Ib-V-IX complex and exposed
    collagen; platelets also adhere to fibronectin
   However, vWF-GPIb bridge is the only
    association strong enough to overcome blood
    flow shearing force
   Shape change via cytoskeletal activation:
    spherical with extending pseudopods
   Platelet granules are released thru canalicular
   Cytoplasmic activation of eicosanoid pathway
    (TXA2), decreased cAMP, and mobilization of
   Phospholipids are translocated to cell surface
    membrane (phosphatidylserine)
             Binding surface for factor Va and Xa (along with Ca++) forms
              prothrombinase complex; secondary hemostasis
 Promoted by ADP and TXA2 release
 ADP induces a conformational change of
  the IIbIIIa receptor, allowing fibrinogen
 Platelets aggregate via fibrinogen bound
  to IIbIIIa receptors
 Auto-catalytic reaction activating other
 Formation of primary hemostatic plug
 Glanzmann’s Thrombasthenia
Eduard Glanzmann (1887-1959), Swiss
Reported a case of a bleeding disorder
 starting immediately after birth
W. E. Glanzmann:Hereditäre
 hämorrhägische Thrombasthenie. Ein
 Beitrag zur Pathologie der Blutplättchen.
 Jahrbuch für Kinderheilkunde, 1918; 88: 1-
 42, 113-141.
   IIbIIIa most abundant platelet surface receptor
    (80,000 per platelet)
   IIbIIIa complex is a Ca++ dependent
   Genes for both subunits are found on
    Chromosome 17
   Disease is caused by mutations (substitution,
    insertion, deletion, splicing abnormalities) in
    genes encoding for IIb or IIIa resulting in
    qualitative or quantitative abnormalities of the
 Fundamental defect of thrombasthenic
  patients is the inability of the platelets to
 Other problems: platelets do not spread
  normally on the subendothelial matrix (due
  to lack of IIbIIIa – vWF/fibronectin
 Also, alpha granule fibrinogen is
  decreased to absent
 AR inheritance
 Patients present with wide spectrum of
 Like thrombocytopenic bleeding: skin,
  mucous membrane (petichiae,
  echymoses), recurrent epistaxis, GI
  hemorrhage, menorrhagia, and immediate
  bleeding after trauma/surgery
 ICH, joint, muscle bleeding uncommon
   Glanzmann’s patients are stratified into
    three groups based on complex
       Type I less than 5 percent GPIIbIIIa, absent
        alpha granule fibrinogen
          Usually   as a result of IIb gene mutation
     Type II <20 percent, fibrinogen present
     Type III >50 percent; “variant”
      thrombasthenia; qualitative disorder
 Platelet count and morphology are normal
 Bleeding time prolonged
 The hallmark of the disease is severely
  reduced or absent platelet aggregation in
  response to multiple agonists ie ADP,
  thrombin, or collagen (except Ristocetin)
 Flow cytometry: decreased mAb
  expression of CD41 (GPIIb) and CD61
     Platelet Aggregation Studies
   Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is prepared from
    citrated whole blood by centrifugation
   Inactive platelets impart a characteristic turbidity
    to PRP
   When platelets aggregate after injection of an
    agonist, the turbidity falls, and light transmission
    through the sample increases proportionally
   The change in light transmission can be
    recorded on an aggregometer
 Different concentrations of each agonist
  are used
 ADP: biphasic pattern:
           wave: low concentration, reversible
      First
      Second wave: high concentration, irreversible
               Other agonists
   Epinephrine: triphasic (resting platelets,
    primary aggregation, secondary
              Other agonists
 Collagen, arachidonic acid, Calcium
  ionophore, PAF are potent agonists and
  induce a single wave of irreversible
 Ristocetin (antibiotic): aggregation can be
  reproduced with metabolically inert,
  formalin-fixed platelets
      Defectiveristo-induced aggregation is
      characteristic of Bernard-Soulier
Problems with platelet aggregation
   Numerous variables affect aggregation:
        Anticoagulant   (sodium citrate best)
        Plt count in PRP
        Plt size distribution
        Time of day
        Temporal relation to meals and physical activity
      Bernard-Soulier Syndrome
   First described in 1948 by Jean Bernard and
    Jean-Pierre Soulier; French hematologists
          Bernard J, Soulier JP: Sur une nouvelle variete de dystrophie
           thrombocytaire hemarroagipare congenitale. Sem Hop Paris
           24:3217, 1948
   AR; characterized by moderate to severe
    thrombocytopenia, giant platelets, and
    perfuse/spontaneous bleeding
   Basis for the disease is deficiency or dysfunction
    of the GP Ib-V-IX complex
      Bernard-Soulier Syndrome
   Decreased GP Ib-V-IX leads to decreased platelet
    adhesion to the subendothelium via decreased binding
    of vWF
   Approximately 20,000 copies of GP Ib-V-IX per platelet
   GP 1b: heterodimer with an alpha and beta subunit
   The gene for GP Ib alpha is located on chromosome 17;
    GP Ib beta: chromosome 22; GPIX and V: chromosome
   Most mutations are missense or frameshifts resulting in
    premature stop codons
   Most mutations involve GP Ib expression (rare GP IX
    mutations have been described; no mutations in GP V)
   Prolonged bleeding time,
    thrombocytopenia (plt<20 K), peripheral
    smear shows large platelets (mean
    diameter >3.5 microns)
 Platelet aggregation studies show normal
  aggregation in response to all agonists
  except Ristocetin (opposite pattern than
 Flow cytometry: decreased expression of
  mAbs to CD 42b (GPIb), CD42a(GPIX),
 May-Hegglin anomaly: AD; giant platelets,
  thrombocytopenia, Dohle-like inclusions
  (larger, more angular)

  patients may have bleeding diathesis
