? Clinical Outcomes after Hepatitis C Infection from Contaminated Anti-D Immune Globulin

“Twelve batches, constituting 4062 vials, of contaminated or potentially contaminated anti-D immune globulin were in circulation in 1977 through 1979 (the batches had an expiration date of mid-1979).”

Doctors to face disciplinary action over Irish hepatitis C scandal.

“The Irish Medical Council’s fitness to practice committee is to begin a disciplinary examination of the role of several doctors criticised by an official Tribunal of Inquiry into the country’s hepatitis C scandal. More than 1000 mothers were infected through contaminated anti-D immunoglobulin in the mid-1970s.”

Neurodevelopmental disorders, maternal Rh-negativity, and Rho(D) immune globulins: a multi-center assessment.

“RESULTS: There were significant and comparable increases in maternal Rh-negativity among children with NDs (Clinic: A=24.2%), autism spectrum disorders (Clinic: A=28.3%, B=25.3%), and attention-deficit-disorder/attention-deficit-hyperactivity-disorder (Clinic: A=26.3%) observed at both clinics in comparison to both control groups (Clinic: A=12.1%, B=13.9%) employed. Children with NDs born post-2001 had a maternal Rh-negativity frequency (13.6%) similar to controls.

CONCLUSION: This study associates TCR exposure with some NDs in children.”
