BACKGROUND In some situations, the administration of D+ RBCs to D- patients is necessary. The probability of a subsequent anti-D formation is assumed to be around 80 percent, a figure based primarily on studies in healthy volunteers. It was hypothesized that patients requiring blood transfusion have a much lower probability of developing antibodies. STUDY… CONTINUE READING
