Anti‐D immunization by DEL red blood cells
BACKGROUND: No data are available on the immunogenicity of extremely weak D variants called DEL. Evaluation of alloanti‐D formation in a D– female patient after transfusion of apparently D– bloodExpand

RHD sequencing: a new tool for decision making on transfusion therapy and provision of Rh prophylaxis
. The serological differentiation of weak D from partial D, D‐negative and D‐positive is not always unequivocal. Therefore, sequencing of the RHD gene is required in some cases. Very recently,Expand

Impact of 13.56‐MHz radiofrequency identification systems on the quality of stored red blood cells
BACKGROUND: Radiofrequency identification (RFID) technology is emerging as one of the most pervasive computing technologies due to its broad applicability. Storage of red blood cells (RBCs) is aExpand

Pancytopenia Due to Suppressed Hematopoiesis in a Case of Fatal Hemolytic Disease of the Newborn Associated With Anti-K Supported by Molecular K1 Typing
The authors report on a fatal case of hemolytic disease of the newborn (HDN) due to anti-K antibodies with subsequent trilineage pancytopenia in a preterm infant of 28 weeks gestational age, withExpand

Genetic diversity of KELnull and KELel: a nationwide Austrian survey
BACKGROUND: Besides ABO and RH, the KEL blood group system, including the two antithetical antigens KEL1 and KEL2, is the most important owing to the frequent appearance of anti‐KEL alloantibodiesExpand

New and unusual O alleles at the ABO locus are implicated in unexpected blood group phenotypes
BACKGROUND:  In the ABO blood group system mutations in the A gene may lead to weak A subgroups owing to a dysfunctional 3‐α‐N‐acetylgalactosaminyltransferase.

Kell Expression on Myeloid Progenitor Cells
Kell is one of the major human red blood cell groups and comprises 22 antigens. These antigens are produced by alleles located on chromosome 7, including sets of antithetical antigens such as KellExpand

Virtual DNA analysis--a new tool for combination and standardised evaluation of SSO, SSP and sequencing-based typing results.
In order to obtain reliable information on HLA types, DNA typing with sequence-specific oligonucleotide/primer (SSO/SSP) typing sets or sequencing-based typing (SBT) is increasingly performed. TheExpand

HLA-B*27 typing by group-specific hybridization in microtiter plates.
We have developed and evaluated a test for HLA-B*27 based on PCR and DNA hybridization in microtiter plates. A region within exon 2 of the HLA-B gene is amplified and labeled by PCR and theExpand

Blood group chimerism
Purpose of reviewWith improved methods for detecting chimeras and growing numbers of stem cell transplantations, blood group and other forms of chimerism are observed with increasing frequency. ThisExpand
