ANTIBODIES AND OTHER IMMUNOSUPPRESSIVE METHODS

There are a number of instances in which antibodies  have been used to suppress the immune response. Among the earliest measures has been the use of anti-RHD antibodies to prevent hemolytic disease of the newborn due to incompatibility between the mother (RHD-) and RHD+ fetus. The disease is prevented by the administration of anti-D antibodies to the mother immediately after delivery. This inhibits the formation of anti-D antibodies in the mother, thereby avoiding the development of serious disease in infant. This therapeutic measure has virtually eliminated the incidence of RH disease in developed countries.
