She was ‘the woman who loses all the babies.’ Then she learned what might have saved them

In developing countries, there are many like her, whose children have died of Rh disease. Yet the illness, which decades ago was defeated in the West, has a simple cure. Now, a Toronto doctor is helping to lead an international effort to save hundreds of thousands of babies.

By screening with the EldonCard we will be able to determine the bloodtype and prevent the disease with the Rhogam injection after birth. Eldon Biologicals is together with the organisation WIRhE (Columbia University) fighting this problem.
