What Is The Result Of Fathers Blood Type Homozygous D In Rh Isoimmunization
ABO blood type: In this system of red cell antigens, O is considered to be recessive. Someone with type O blood would have two O alleles. People with type A blood can have two A alleles or one A allele and one O allele. Same with blood type B. This makes O the recessive and A and B are dominant. ...Read more
Mother Baby Blood Type Mismatch, also known as ABO incompatibility, occurs when a pregnant mother has a different blood type than the developing baby. Exposure to the babyâ€™s blood type, either from that pregnancy or a previous sibling, causes the mothers body to develop antibodies to the blood type. The condition is dangerous as antibodies can cross the placenta and cause anemia (blood cell destruction), jaundice, or fetal ...Read more
What is expected when a man of a+ and woman of o rh+ produces an offspring ? Could this translate to any complications in terms of blincompatibilit
ABO: You are a+, the woman is o+. Women who are o+ carry anti-a and anti-b antibodies. The child will either be a+ or o+. If the child is a+, there is a chance that mother's anti-a antibodies will be high and cross the placenta and cause red cell break down. This doesn't affect the baby in utero but may cause high bilirubin levels (or jaundice) in the new born. ...Read more
Is there a genetic test in UK that can tell if a person is a poor metabolizer with Clopidogrel having two copies of each of the CYP2C19 gene.?
Phenotype is the big: issue, not genotype, because we each live with the complex results of both genotype combined with all our complex internal controls, beyond the any gene or sets of genes alone. Since clopidgrel is a platelet suppressing, clot-slowing agent, best check clotting with & without whatever trial dosage. The best of the clotting tests is TEG, study: Thromboelastography, commonly used in hospitals. ...Read more
Clarification: Are you asking what is the implication of having the sickle cell? A woman can have one gene for sickle cell and this makes her a carrier. Typically carriers who are heterozygous for the disease are asymptomatic. Or, she can have 2 genes (one from each of her parents) of the sickle cell gene and that typically will make her have sickle cell disease. I'm not sure if that answers your question? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Rh negative and not sure who the baby's father is. Odd are Rh positive like 85% of the population, right?
"Is Panaromic blood test to find the gender of the baby with just 6.78% of fetal fraction cells accurate in detecting the gender of the baby as boy."?
Panoramic: It is told to be 99% accurate. But I have heard of false negatives....purpose is to look for genetic defects. Gender is bonus! ...Read more
Group A and O: The different is one has blood group o+ - and the other has blood group a+. Group o has no antigen a and b, but has antibody to a and b. So, group o is a universal donor- and the blood can be given to people with different blood group. Group a has antigen a, and antibody b. So, can receive group a or o blood. Group o only can receive blood group o if needed any blood transfusion. ...Read more
Is a woman with sc blood genotype a sickle cell carrier or patient. And what is the health implication of this especially during pregnancy?
Hgb SC: Is a sickle cell syndrome but the genetics are different. A woman with HGB sc will pass either a HGB s gene, or a HGB c gene to her child. It is important to know what kind of HGB the father has-he should have a hemoglobin electrophoresis to find out how the child might be affected. Pregnancy complications are rare, but the baby can have a low weight, and rarely there are complications for the mom. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What is the likelihood of a false negative herpes type specific blood test with background of lupus (sle)?
About 0% to 9%: Quest diagnostics' website states that their herpes type-specific IgG antibody test is 91-100% sensitive, so there are a few false negative results. A repeat test can be done 4-6 weeks later, if worried about a false negative. Lupus should not affect the result, but if a person is on strong immuno-suppressive therapy, his antibody production may be blocked, which may make test results unreliable. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Red-green color blindness is caused by an x-linked recessive gene. In a family, the mother is a carrier of this gene while the father does not have the gene. What are the possible effects on their children?
Hemphillia: Genetic testing is also available for the factor viii gene and the factor ix gene. Genetic testing of the fviii gene finds a disease-causing mutation in up to 98 percent of individuals who have hemophilia a. Genetic testing of the fix gene finds disease-causing mutations in more than 99 percent of individuals who have hemophilia b. Genetic testing is usually used to identify women who are carriers. ...Read more
35 week of pregnancy, antibody anti-e (1:8).My blood group:ab ccd.Ee(rh pos), father b+.What does it mean?Why should we test the antogen of the father?
Rh is complicated: Anti-e ("anti big-e") is much less likely to be troublesome than anti-d (the common anti-rh antibody). You inherited two copies of the cde allele, one of several that you can get at your main rh locus, and the father of at least one of your children has at least one copy of an allele with a big e. Titer isn't so important as how junior seems to be doing before birth. Best wishes. ...Read more

My father has a rare type of sickle cell that affects his WBC's instead of RBC's. Is there any information on this type of Sickle Cell Trait?
Get better info: Your dad may have a white cell disorder but it has nothing to do with sickle cell trait which is a specific red cell disorder. You need to consult with your day and find out the proper name for his disorder before we can comment. A doc may have compared it to sickle cell trait to try to explain it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What could my blood type be? My mom has blood type o pos, i don't know of my father's blood type.
I want to find out who my baby's father is without a DNA test. Can I use the old fashioned blood type testing?
Too vague: Blood type testing can certainly exclude a designated person if their blood type is incompatible with that of the child. For example, a dad who is ab would not have a kid that was an o. But narrowing down & proving someone is by this means is unlikely.There are some companies that offer dna tests for this purpose & some states will require this method to identify dads for child support disputes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am A rhesus negative blood type and my newborn is rhesus positive. Does that mean that the father of my baby must be a positive blood type?
Yes: The positive factor must come from a parent, and if you are negative, dad donated the positive factor. ...Read more
Either!: Your baby has a 50-50 chance of inheriting either your blood type or the baby's father's blood type. Depending on any medical concerns at the time of birth, the pediatrician caring for your baby may or may not order a blood type to check on things. In many cases, unless there is a problem with your baby (such as significant jaundice), this blood test may not be routinely done or necessary. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
You can calculate it: Here's an online application to calculate blood types: http://www.biology.arizona.edu/human_bio/problem_sets/blood_types/btcalcA_popup.html It says the baby has equal chances of being A+, A-, O+ or O-. Best! ...Read more
All of them: The issue of blood type is not important when selecting a mate. Years ago we had issues with RH negative mothers, which is still a problem if the pregnancy is not monitored, but the Rh problem has become unimportant after discovery of meds that could cancel out the problem if used on time. Mom or dad can be any blood type and we can deal with it. ...Read more

Sure: The Coombs test (named for a Professor Robin Coombs, a British immunologist) looks for certain types of antibodies floating in the serum or attached to one's red blood cells. The antibodies can be related to "minor blood types" instead of the major ABO/Rh blood groups. If so, all three people can be A+ blood type, and still have a positive Coombs test in the baby. ...Read more
When u get a DNA test and u having a girl or boy does the baby have the father blood type to determine who's the father?
Blood Types matter: Depending on the blood type of the mother and father, the child may be at risk of blood group incompatibility. Knowing this in advance allows the doctors to prevent this potentially life threatening condition by giving certain medications at different stages of pregnancy. ...Read more
