Rh factor: The rhesus factor is an protein add on to the blood cell that divides all groups into those that have it or those that don't.People that are rh - can develop a destructive antibody that will attack any rh + cells & cause a transfusion reaction. Rh + cells don't react to rh- . The rh reaction is much more trouble than most problems with a to o or b to o reactions.
