Rhoclone injection is used to prevent the formation of immune response in women with negative (Rh-negative) blood group who are exposed to Rh antigen (from a positive blood group fetus) at the time of planned abortion or miscarriage (upto 12 weeks gestation). When this exposure happens the Rh negative blood will respond by making antibodies that will try to destroy the Rh positive blood cells. This can cause medical problems such as anemia (low red blood cells), kidney failure, or shock. To buy Rhoclone or to know its price contact 3S corporation.
