Info Atypical Anti Erythrocyte Antibodies

because anti-D IgG prophylaxis has reduced the risk of sensitization to less than 1% of susceptible pregnancies, other alloantibodies have increased in relative importance. These include antibodies to other antigens of the Rh blood group system (ie, c, C, e, E) and other atypical antibodies known to cause severe anemia, such as anti-Kell (ie, K, k), anti-Duffy (ie, Fya), and anti-Kidd (ie, Jka, Jkb).

The treatment for these atypical anti-erythrocyte antibody isoimmunizations is similar to the typical D-Rh isoimmunization, however, they are not yet preventable, no anti-Kell IgG has been manufactured yet to be given to mothers.

Yes, you can screen for it, but what's the point if you don't have the Anti-Kell IgG!
