Drugs and Biologics

Drugs and Important Biological Agents (IBA) related to Fetomaternal Transfusion:
1. Rho(D) Immune Globulin (RhoGAM)IBA
2. RHO(D) antibody (anti-D)IBA
3. Fetal Hemoglobin (Hemoglobin F)IBA
4. AntigensIBA
06/01/2011 - "Advances in diagnosis and management are described, from identification of the alloimmunized pregnancy by maternal ABO and Rh typing, antibody screen (indirect Coombs test), identification and titration; laboratory evaluation of the maternal-fetal unit with a critical maternal antibody titer to prompt fetal antigen status determination; assessment of fetomaternal hemorrhage by conventional Kleihauer-Betke testing or by flow cytometric methodology; to antenatal management of isoimmunization and fetal status assessments using the systems of Liley, Queenan, and serial Doppler fetal middle cerebral artery peak velocity measurements. "
01/01/2010 - "As the rosette screen targets the D antigen, it is not suitable for detecting a fetomaternal hemorrhage in D+ mothers or when the D type of the fetus or newborn is D– or unknown. "
01/01/2010 - "Transplacental or fetomaternal hemorrhage (FMH) may occur during pregnancy or at delivery and lead to immunization to the D antigen if the mother is Rh-negative and the baby is Rh-positive. "
01/01/1990 - "Fetomaternal hemorrhage secondary to chorionic villus biopsy has the potential to accelerate fetal hemolytic disease in the pregnant patient previously sensitized to red cell antigens. "
10/01/2002 - "In immunohematology, flow cytometry is a very powerful approach to the study of mixed red cell populations (hematopoietic chimerism, transfusion or bone marrow transplantation), the detection of low frequency cell populations (reticulocytes, fetomaternal hemorrhage) and the quantitative analysis of red blood cell antigens."
