Since 1948, the Framingham Study has examined a group of men and women every two years for the primary purpose of studying the incidence and prevalence of cardiovascular disease and its ri...
The genetic contribution and influence on the progression of peripheral artery disease (PAD) and possible cardiovascular events remains relatively unknown. As a result, the investigators a...
Background: - Chronic hepatitis D is a liver disease caused by the hepatitis D virus. It can be severe and progressive. Most people with hepatitis D will develop scarring and damage to th...
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and tolerability of dantrolene sodium in patients with Wolfram syndrome. Wolfram syndrome is a rare genetic disorder, causing diabetes mel...
This is a study to to compare traditional fibre wound swabs to more recently developed flocked swabs for the identification of Group A streptococcal pharyngitis in children presenting to a...
Thirty-six blood group systems are listed by the International Society of Blood Transfusion, containing almost 350 antigens. Most of these result from a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP). Serology ...
Whole blood is the preferred product for resuscitation of severe traumatic hemorrhage. It contains all the elements of blood that are necessary for oxygen delivery and hemostasis, in nearly physiologi...
As deceased donor kidney allocation is based in part on blood type compatibility, group B candidates are disadvantaged due to their disproportionate representation on the wait list compared to the gro...
To summarize recent advances in red blood cell (RBC) blood group genotyping, with an emphasis on advances in the use of NGS next generation sequencing (NGS) to detect clinically relevant blood group g...
Correct blood group typing is a prerequisite for transfusion. In most cases blood group determination is without problems; however, in individual cases various factors can complicate blood group dete...
A blood group related to the ABO, Lewis and I systems. At least five different erythrocyte antigens are possible, some very rare, others almost universal. Multiple alleles are involved in this blood group.
A group of dominantly and independently inherited antigens associated with the ABO blood factors. They are glycolipids present in plasma and secretions that may adhere to the erythrocytes. The phenotype Le(b) is the result of the interaction of the Le gene Le(a) with the genes for the ABO blood groups.
Erythrocyte isoantigens of the Rh (Rhesus) blood group system, the most complex of all human blood groups. The major antigen Rh or D is the most common cause of erythroblastosis fetalis.
Identification of the major histocompatibility antigens of transplant DONORS and potential recipients, usually by serological tests. Donor and recipient pairs should be of identical ABO blood group, and in addition should be matched as closely as possible for HISTOCOMPATIBILITY ANTIGENS in order to minimize the likelihood of allograft rejection. (King, Dictionary of Genetics, 4th ed)
The process by which an aspect of self image is developed based on in-group preference or ethnocentrism and a perception of belonging to a social or cultural group. (From APA, Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms, 8th ed.)
