comment Why is the administration of exogenous Anti-D not harmful to the foetus?
That's an excellent article, thank you. I had wondered if they used primarily IgG2 to reduce placental transmission but this is not the case (the article indicating IgG1 and IgG3). If a 125 unit dose can neutralise only 1.25 ml of D+ve blood and not all of it crosses the placenta then this is likely to be an insignificant dose to cause harm. I assume this could cause harm with a greater number of repeated doses after sensitising events but I think this is sufficient evidence to say that it is indeed a dose dependent phenomenon. Thanks!

comment Is a stab wound to the back lethal?
I think there is a possibility for significant selection bias in those studies as they only include patients who made it to hospital alive
