NCBGG provides state-of-the-art molecular testing for donor centers and patients they serve.
Unlike other blood group antigens that are either positive or negative when tested in the laboratory, RhD antigens are diverse in both phenotype and genotype. They also vary between ethnic groups.
RhD serologic typing, while beneficial, has inherent limitations that affect both obstetric patients and their OB-GYNs. Fortunately, RHD genotyping can help.
The benefits of RHD genotyping are vast, including more efficient obstetric care and significant cost savings.
Consistency is essential to quality healthcare, but Rh typing methods are associated with discrepancies that OB-GYNs need to be aware of.
The purpose of the table is to document RHCE alleles that have been reported associated with a clinical presentation, be it altered antigen expression on the RBCs and/or antibody production in a patient.
