  • Platelets are critical cells for maintaining vascular hemostasis, but their activities in other processes are becoming apparent. Specifically, the ability of platelets to recognize and respond to infectious agents is an important area of investigation. To understand the physiologic roles of platelets in vivo, most researchers have used antibody-mediated platelet depletion, which has certain limitations.
