This is done so that the fetal rhesus D positive erythrocytes are destroyed before the immune system of the mother can discover them and become sensitized.

This suggested for the first time that a mother could make blood group antibodies because of immune sensitization to her fetus ‘s RBCs. Rhesus iso-immunization has become sufficiently rare, and the treatment sufficiently complex, to warrant regionalization of care for these women and babies. In Maythe Society for Obstetrics and Gynecology of Canada is now recommending that the optimal management of the D-negative pregnant woman is based on the prediction of the fetal D-blood group by cell-free DNA in maternal plasma with targeted antenatal anti-D prophylaxis.

Friesen, PhD, licensed a version of the vaccine, known as WinRho, in The use of Rh immune globulin to prevent the disease in babies of Rh negative mothers has become standard practice, and the disease, which used to claim the lives of 10, babies each year in the US alone, has been virtually eradicated in the developed world.

Gray baby syndrome muscle tone Congenital hypertonia Congenital hypotonia. A recent review found research into giving Anti-D to all Rhesus D negative pregnant women is of low quality.

Routine use of anti-D immunoglobulin at 28 or 34 weeks of pregnancy for all Rh-negative women is of value as well, but the costs of such a programme are high and together with the limited supplies of anti-D immunoglobulin may preclude this in some countries. The rhesus blood type was first discovered in by Karl Landsteiner and Alexander S. Development of the Nervous System.
