Rodriguez 33 With the Rh factor, there are 8 blood types ­ Rh (rhesus) factor is a protein on the surface of red blood Rh cells (RBCs). Like the ABO system, people who are Rh+ (RR cells or Rr) do not make antibodies to this factor. Rh- (rr) individuals do not have antibodies to Rh but they can produce anti-Rh antibodies with exposure to the Rh+ blood. produce Unlike the ABO system, antibodies to Rh antigens don't develop naturally.
