Abstract

Although the findings demonstrate feasibility of providing KEL1-negative RBCs to women of childbearing potential, evidence for clinical benefit is lacking. The low prevalence of KEL1 in blood donors, the lack of significant differences in alloimmunization rates, and no cases of HDFN during the study period questions the clinical benefit of such a policy.
