Question: O- c/K fetomaternal alloimmunisation

 Dasein - Sun Jan 08, 2006 12:31 am

Thank you in advance ... When maternal blood type is O-, should testing for c/K negative/alloimmunisation be included, or is this a matter of course. Would you kindly elucidate as I am having a little difficulty in fast- tracking comprehension with regards general practice. Or provide links. Any appropriate input would be very much appreciated.

Hooray ! I have finally found a lab. that provides Foetal DNA Genotyping via Maternal Plasma for D K and c (at no cost too!).

To anyone who is frustrated at being met with ridicule and incredulity regarding cutting-edge or generally obscure information, testing etc, take no notice of naysayers, success just takes a little more perseverance laced with a pinch of defiance ... ne dites pas jamais.

Thanks to all who considered responding to my query. To anyone who can still edify me further with regards to K/c, please do ... just because I have found a testing facility by no means implies my comprehension is any the more the advanced.
