- ABO Blood Group System: biochemistry, genetics and phenotype; ABO blood types and variants.
Antibodies directed against ABO blood group antigens: methods to detect these antibodies and clinical significance.
- Rh Blood Group System: history and clinical aspects of Rh Blood Group System; molecular bases of Rh antigens, biochemistry. D antigen and other Rh Blood Group System antigens; alloantibodies that recognize D antigen and other Rh antigens.
- Erythrocyte Alloimmunization: the main mechanisms involved in the alloimmunization; mechanisms of recognition and presentation of antigen, the primary antibody reaction and the production of high affinity IgG antibodies when antigen rechallenges. Immunogenic properties of the main Blood Group System antigens.
- The antiglobulin test (or Coombs’ test): mechanism, direct and indirect antiglobulin tests. The clinical use of these tests in immunohematology and laboratory methods. Antibodies defined as “cold” or “warm”.
- Transfusion practice: pre-transfusion testing and selection of blood for transfusion.
- Direct antiglobulin Test positive and autoantibodies: clinical significance and management of patients with autoantibodies.
- Alloantibodies identification.

Written test, multiple-choice, multiple oral exam.
The IMMUNOEMATOLOGY AND EMOSTASI modules and IMMUNOEMATOLOGY METHODS AND TECHNIQUES determine 32 questions about the 40 overall written exams of the entire course of "Diagnostic Methodologies of Clinical Pathology".
The evaluation of the examination is complete and integrates the three modules (IMMUNOEMATOLOGY AND EMOSTASES, METHODS AND TECHNIQUES OF IMMUNOMATOLOGY, CLINICAL PATHOLOGY) as well as the result of oral examination. Written questions will be reviewed immediately, during the oral test, with at least 30/40 (75%) correct written answers.
