RhoGAM (rhod immune globulin human) is a sterilized solution made from human blood used to prevent an immune response to Rh positive blood in people with an Rh negative blood type. RhoGAM may also be used in the treatment of immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). Rh is a substance that most people have in their blood (Rh positive) but some people don’t (Rh negative). An Rh negative person can be exposed to Rh positive blood through a mismatched blood transfusion or during pregnancy when the baby has the opposite blood type. RhoGAM is available in generic form.
