Re: TKH2

From:Carrie Kyle <>

TKH2 is an antibody used to detect the sialyl Tn antigen.  This antigen is a mucin-associated carbohydrate expressed by most human adenoca's.  Here's a reference for more info if you're interested:
Zhang S; et al.
Immune sera and monoclonal antibodies define 2 configurations for the sialyl Tn tumor antigen.
Cancer Research, 1995 Aug.1, 55(15):3364-8.

I'm at a loss to see any connection of this antibody to obstetric deaths (fetal or maternal).....I found nothing in a literature search.
