The powerful prevention, analysis, and administration of alloimmune cytopenias has turn into a staff attempt regarding hematologists, obstetricians, pediatricians, immunologists, laboratory technicians, midwives, and learn scientists. This publication has been written via specialists of their respective fields to assemble the problems of pathogenesis, epidemiology, prevention, prognosis, and medical administration. This accomplished yet obtainable account is greatly cross-referenced to stress the hyperlinks among pathogenesis and medical sequels, among epidemiology and the reason for screening courses, and among prognosis and healing intervention.

Example text

Most blood group polymorphisms are the result of one or more nucleotide changes encoding amino acid substitutions in an extracellular domain of a red cell surface protein. In null phenotypes, the whole protein is absent from the membrane, usually as a result of a gene deletion or an inactivating mutation. When immunized, women with null phenotypes may make antibodies to a variety of epitopes on the blood group protein and these antibodies often have the ability to cause HDFN. Carbohydrate antigens, such as those of the ABO system, provide a further complexity to the genetics of red cell surface antigens.

The maturational specificity of blood group antigens may also affect the pathogenesis of HDFN. 60,61 The second criterion is antigen density. Some antigens (for example, Rh antigens) are well expressed early in embryonic development. Other antigens (for example, Lutheran antigens) are poorly expressed on fetal cells. 62 A third criterion may be antigen structure. 64 However, the implications of these in vitro observations for the pathogenesis of HDFN remain to be elucidated. 5 Antigen density There is evidence that the density of blood group antigens on fetal red cells may affect the severity of haemolysis.
