What are Antibodies that neutralize toxins but do not affect the organism producing the toxin?
Yes rhesus antibodies do affect pregnancy. The antibodies can cross the placenta (afterbirth) from mother to baby and attack the baby's red blood cells making the baby very anemic. check out http://www.medical-library.org/journals2a/rhesus_isoimmunization.htm It is a bit medical but might lead you to other websites. Good luck
Because the mother's blood antibodies did not affect the child. However, if the mother is not treated with Rhogam after delivery the mother has a increased chance of creating antibodies that WILL affect her next baby in utero due to the rh incompatibility creating antibodies that could attack the fetus in utero. Make sure you receive RHOGAM! Hope this helps!
Yes, your immune system is triggered to fight the cold and the immune system starts that process with an immune response. It gets busy making your body create a hostile environment for the virus (with fever and other metabolic changes) as well as producing antibodies to disable the cold virus particles.
Diseases affect either the structure and/or functioning of an organ within the organism. If the cells can, they try to repair the structures, which improves the functioning. However, some diseases are too chronic or too ongoing for the cells to completely correct. So the organ or its supportive / related structures or other organs try to "go around" the problems. For examples: A blood vessel might fill with debris blocking blood flow (which is the…
How might the size of a molecule affect the way in which an organism obtains the nutrients in that molecules?
Number one: If you are RH- and your baby RH+, and your blood mixes with your baby's, it could become sensitized. Your body could begin producing antibodies to the RH+ blood. If these antibodies get to an unborn baby, they can begin killing off the baby's red blood cells. This is called RH disease. It is rare for it to affect a first baby, but if the mother becomes sensitized and produces antibodies to RH+…
