HyperRHO S/D Mini-Dose [Rho(D) Immune Globulin (Human)] is an immune globulin containing antibodies to Rho(D) recommended to prevent the isoimmunization of Rho(D) negative women at the time of spontaneous or induced abortion of up to 12 weeks' gestation provided the following criteria are met: 1. The mother must be Rho(D) negative and must not already be sensitized to the Rho(D) antigen; 2. The father is not known to be Rho(D) negative; and 3. Gestation is not more than 12 weeks at termination. Common side effects of HyperRHO S/D Mini-Dose include:

  • injection site soreness and fever.

One syringe of HyperRHO S/D Mini-Dose provides sufficient antibody to prevent Rh sensitization to 2.5 mL Rho(D) positive packed red cells or the equivalent (5 mL) of whole blood. This dose is sufficient to provide protection against maternal Rh sensitization for women undergoing spontaneous or induced abortion of up to 12 weeks' gestation. HyperRHO S/D Mini-Dose may interact with live vaccines such as measles, mumps, polio or rubella. Tell your doctor all medications and supplements you use and all vaccines you recently received. During pregnancy, HyperRHO S/D Mini-Dose should only be administered if prescribed; it is unknown if it would harm a fetus. Consult your doctor before breastfeeding.
