Platelets mediate serological memory to neutralize viruses in vitro and in vivo

Blood Adv. 2020 Aug 25;4(16):3971-3976. doi: 10.1182/bloodadvances.2020001786.


  1. Platelets contain virus-specific IgGs that potently diminish viral infection in vitro and in vivo.

  2. Release of platelet IgG is more efficient at virus neutralization than equal amounts of plasma IgG.
