The high-affinity anti-RBC monoclonal antibody efficiently bind to Fc receptors on macrophages inducing anemia in vivo due to a rapid Fc receptor (FcyR)-mediated erythrophagocytosis of opsonised RBC in spleen and livers. The capacity of the antibody to interact with FcyR is responsible for its haemolytic activity.
