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...
Fluorine-18 Fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) Positron Emission Tomography (PET) hybrid exams (PET/CT, PET/MRI) have become the most common PET imaging tool in the evaluation of the oncologic patient. Ther...
This review was derived from a presentation made on September 2, 2016 for the first Academy Day presented by the Working Party on Immunohematology at the International Society of Blood Transfusion (IS...
Heightened group identification motivates individuals to perpetrate violence, but can perpetrating violence-in and of itself-increase identification with violent groups? I test this idea using archiva...
Electrodermal activity (EDA) is considered a measure of autonomous nervous system activity. This study performed an exploratory analysis of the EDA changes during blood pooling for arterial blood gas ...
Haemagglutination has been the gold standard for defining the blood group status. However, these tests depend upon the availability of specific and reliable antisera. Potent antisera for extended phen...
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.
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.)
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.
