Background/Case Studies: The aim of this study was to evaluate the plate-let function and their relationship with the ABO phenotype in regular aphere-sis platelet donors in a blood bank located at intermediate altitude.

Study Design/Method: Blood samples were collected from 90 apheresisplatelet donors after acceptance. Platelet function was determined by high-voltage dynamic flow (Siemens/Dade Behring PFA-100VR) with Collagen/ADP (closure times reference range, RR: 60-114 seconds) and Collagen/Epinephrine (RR: 83-156 seconds). Data were analyzed by unpaired t testand Chi square.
