The Rh factor is the most significant group in the blood system. The first one is ABO that comprises of 50 defined blood-group antigens. Other important groups are D, C, c, E, e. Based on the presence or absence of D antigen this Rh factor can be categorized into two categories: Rh positive which contains D antigen and Rh-negative in which D antigen is absent.
• Haemolytic Disease- It is the breakdown of red blood cells.
• Erythroblastosis Fetalis- In this immature RBC’s are formed in the fetus.
This is usually caused due to incompatibility between the father’s and mother’s blood group. It can be prevented by injecting a mother with RhoGAm or Rho (D) made from blood plasma, at 28 weeks of gestation and within 72 hours after giving birth. This avoids the growth of antibodies against the fetus from the mother’s body. The injection actually carries Rh-positive blood which helps in doing so.
