What Is The Result Of Pubs Rh In Rh Isoimmunization
Rh D positive: Rh is a blood grouping system like ABO system. Rh is taken from rhesus monkey. There are specific proteins called antigens on rbcs. They are termed a, b, c, d, e and so on. There are many of them. It means that antigen d is present on the rbcs surface. The rh system is important in hemolytic anemia of newly born babies. Thanks. ...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
Rh negative and not sure who the baby's father is. Odd are Rh positive like 85% of the population, right?
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

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
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
Trick question: Are you studying immunology? The extra domain on ige indicates a unique role for the c2 domain in the interaction between ige and fcri. C2 reduces the off-rate of the ige/fcri, thereby resulting in a more stable complex. It is felt that the domain on igm co-contributes to the pentamic structure production. ...Read more
Autoimmunity: Sometimes, the immune system makes antibodies that attack your own tissues. This occurs in disorders such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and others. Anti-dna antibodies are just one form of antibody that are seen in autoimmune disorders. A high level of anti-dna antibodies should be evaluated by an immunologist or rheumatologist. ...Read more
Unborn child: Some people have the common rh sensitizing antigen on their red cells and some don't; it's inherited. If dad has this and mom does not, mom can make antibodies against it (especially after the first such baby); these can cross the placenta and destroy the child's red cells, causing severe illness or death -- once very common. Rhogam at delivery usually prevents mom from getting sensitized. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Doubtful: In the us, we tend to ignore the bcg status when interpreting the PPD skin test. There are many reasons for this, and one is that the effect (on the skin test) of the bcg tends to be small, and the degree of reaction we look for on the PPD is usually large (depending on your other risk factors for exposure and for active TB if you are exposed). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Where?: With use of the vaccine there is marked reduction in the incidence of chronic hep b carriage which is generally how perinatal transfer occurs. In taiwan, for example, the rate has fallen dramatically. In third world countries it remains inordinately high since access to the vaccine or acceptability by the population is reduced. Check the who web site for exact percentages by country. ...Read more
Transfusions: The major importance of being Rh negative (Rh-) is that you could have a severe, potentially life-threatening or even fatal reaction if you received blood from an Rh positive (Rh+) individual. Rh+ ppl can receive Rh+ or Rh- blood, while Rh- ppl should receive only Rh- blood. The other consequence is in pregnancy. I've run out of space, but Rh- mom and Rh+ baby can lead to problems in future preg ...Read more
