9 January 2020 (Thursday) - Antigen Incidence

Here’s something to make you think. This appeared on the Blood Bank Interest Group on Facebook posted by someone with whom I went to college (nearly forty years ago).
It is a scan of a blood group antibody panel that was being used in China in June 2005. Note also the need for Di(a) on the panel, that only three of the cells were D Negative, and that NONE of the cells were either K Positive or Fy(b+).
It is easy to overlook the racial variations of blood group incidences.
