We present a reliable test for prenatal prediction of fetal RhD type using maternal plasma from RhD- women. This test is needed for a future antenatal RH prophylaxis. A new real time PCR based assay targeting RHD exon 7 and a published assay for RHD exon 10 were used to determine the fetal RHD status in DNA extracted from plasma from 56 pregnant women in 15th -36 th week of gestation. Prediction of fetal RhD type was compared with the phenotype determined after birth, and showed 100% concordance. This setup will be of value in antenatal RH prophylaxis and in the management of immunised women.
