Antibody against poly(ethylene glycol) adversely affects PEG‐asparaginase therapy in acute lymphoblastic leukemia patients
The objective of the study was to determine whether anti‐PEG was associated with rapid clearance PEG‐ASNase, and if so, how prevalent it was in healthy blood donors.

Motivations to donate blood: demographic comparisons
This research highlights the need to understand blood donor motivations to improve effectiveness of donor recruitment and retention programs and the challenges faced in understanding these motivations.
ABO and Rh(D) phenotype frequencies of different racial/ ethnic groups in the United States
BACKGROUND: Commonly quoted ABO/Rh(D) frequencies in the US are usually from relatively small studies with racial or ethnic categories often judged by name or appearance.

DAT-negative autoimmune hemolytic anemias (AIHAs) represent 5% to 10% of all AIHAs and three causes have been identified: small numbers of red blood cell (RBC)-bound IgG molecules below the threshold of the DAT; (2) IgA and IgM autoantibodies; and (3) low-affinity autoantIBodies.
The role of altruistic behavior, empathetic concern, and social responsibility motivation in blood donation behavior
This work quantitatively evaluated altruism, empathy, or social responsibility characteristics in donors and examined how they relate to donation frequency.
First year donation patterns predict long‐term commitment for first‐time donors
This work examined whether first‐time donors with frequent return in the first 12 months were more likely to become regular donors.

DIIHA is attributed most commonly to drug-dependent antibodies that can only be detected in the presence of drug, but some drugs induce RBC autoantibodies, sometimes causing AIHA.

It is reasonable to conclude that individuals belonging to the different blood groups are not equally viable, and it is possible that in some conditions, infectious or otherwise, they would depart from their normal frequencies, indicating that persons of a particular blood group are unduly susceptible to the disease in question.
