Routine antenatal anti-D prophylaxis for women who are rhesus D negative

NICE technology appraisals [TA156] Published date:

Routine antenatal anti-D prophylaxis is recommended as a treatment option for all pregnant women who are RhD negative and who are not known to be 'sensitised'.

When a decision has been made to give routine antenatal anti-D prophylaxis, the treatment with the lowest cost should be used. This should take into account the costs of both obtaining and giving the treatment.
