Non- ABO antibody Titre

Description: 
During pregnancy, when red cell antibodies are detected, further testing of maternal blood should be undertaken to determine the specificity, concentration, origin and level of antibody/ antibodies. This is used to determine the likelihood of HDN. Anti-D, Anti-c and Anti-K are the antibodies most often implicated in causing HDN severe enough to warrant intervention. Others implicated in HDN are anti-Fya and anti-Jka.
