Racial frequencies of platelet-specific antigens in racial groups other than whites have not been studied. The prevalence of PL(A1) was determined in white and black blood donors. Two hundred forty-two of 243 blacks were PL(A1)-positive (99.6%), compared with 242 of 250 whites (96.8%) (p = 0.021). This black population has the highest frequency of PL(A1) yet reported.
