Title: Rh D immunoglobulin - You and Your Baby
Summary: Rh(D) Immunoglobulin-VF (Anti-D) is a human immunoglobulin preparation for intramuscular administration.
Rh(D) Immunoglobulin-VF is prepared from blood obtained from voluntary and non-remunerated (unpaid) donors. Rh(D) Immunoglobulin-VF contains proteins called antibodies which help to suppress the unwanted immune response in an Rh(D) negative woman following her exposure to Rh(D) positive red cells.
For example, if a pregnant woman has an Rh(D) negative blood group and her baby is Rh(D) positive, the baby's blood is incompatible with the mother’s. This could lead to reduced red blood cells, brain damage and other serious complications in the baby. This condition is known as Haemolytic Disease of the Newborn.
