Not only ABO blood group system is important for determining hypertension, erythroblastosis fetalis, blood transfusion and exchange reactions12 but has also been shown to be relevant to conditions such as osteodysplasia and as genetic marker of obesity.12 More recent developments are exploring the relationship between ABO blood grouping
and obesity13, which was also one of the main objectives of current study.
The aim of the present study was to determine the ABO blood grouping
from the pulpal tissue of extracted teeth and to correlate the same with blood group details obtained from the study subjects.
This study on association of blood grouping
with bleeding and clotting time will bring more awareness to the health care communities in prevention of the above diseases by appropriate measures in the concerned individuals.
The ABO blood grouping
monoclonal reagents contained hybridized immunoglobulin's secreting mouse cell-line.
For qualitative variables like gender and blood grouping
, frequencies and percentages were calculated.
Serological studies: The red cells were nonreactive with the routine anti-A blood grouping
reagent when tested on the PK7300 automated instrument and were weakly reactive (w+) when tested by a manual tube technique after incubation at RT for 10 minutes.
This may exclude a probable relationship between blood grouping
and pemphigus in our patients also.
Policy message: Blood grouping
of married pair may be helpful in early diagnosis of Rh -ve blood incompatibility.
A carbohydrate-containing antigen, termed Pk blood group which is distinct from the well-known ABO and Rh blood grouping
systems, is present at variable levels on the surface of white and red blood cells in the general population.
was performed by both forward and reverse methods.
Major factors driving the growth of this market include the increasing demand for blood and blood products, growing number of road accidents and trauma cases that necessitate blood transfusion, need for blood grouping
during prenatal testing, and increasing usage of blood group typing in forensic sciences.
For a long time, there have been efforts to establish association of ABO blood grouping
with Gastric cancer in order to establish which Blood group individuals are more susceptible to Gastric cancer.
of all the subjects were done by rapid slide test.
ABO and Rh (D) blood grouping
were carried out by tube method using commercially prepared antisera.
