The evolution of human blood groups, without doubt, has a history as old as man himself. There are at least three hypotheses about the emergence and mutation of human blood groups. Global distribution pattern of blood groups depends on various environmental factors, such as disease, climate, altitude, humidity etc. In this survey, the collection of main blood groups ABO and Rh, along with some minor groups, are presented. Several investigations of blood groups from Iran, particularly a large… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Blood group distribution of abo antigens and rhesus blood group system in the macedonian and albanian population in the republic of macedonia
TLDR
The results from the investigation showed that Macedonians and Albanians did not differ very much and the only significant difference was found in the distribution of AB blood group (more precisely AB negative), which, in general, is more frequent in Albanian population.
From 3 to 38: diversity of blood groups in fish & Humans-A mini review
TLDR
The present paper attempts to review the blood group systems found in fishes in comparison to the diverseBlood group systems in humans.
Do Blood Group Antigens and the Red Cell Membrane Influence Human Immunodeficiency Virus Infection?
TLDR
Red cell antigens interact and influence HIV infection, as the red cell membrane is complex and the pathogenesis of HIV multi-factorial, the role of blood group antIGens cannot be studied in isolation.
Frequency and distribution of ABO and Rh blood groups among blood donors in tertiary care hospital of South Gujarat, India
TLDR
The most common blood group in donors was B positive and least common was AB negative, and the ABO and Rh blood groups among blood donors in South Gujarat, India was A BO and Rh.
A STUDY OF DISTRIBUTION OF ABO AND RH BLOOD GROUPS SYSTEM AMONG BLOOD DONORS AT A TERTIARY CARE HOSPITAL
TLDR
The frequency of ABO and Rhesus (Rh) blood groups in a tertiary care teaching hospital in India over a period of four years was determined to find the most common blood group was found to be B.
Distribution of ABO and Rhesus (Rh) blood Groups among Voluntary Blood Donors in Central Gujarat, India
TLDR
The most common blood group among voluntary donors was B positive and least commonBlood group was AB negative, which is essential for effective management of blood inventory.
History of the Rhesus factor and of neonatal jaundice
TLDR
It is the merit of AW Liley, in 1963, who described the diagram of the same name based on the level of bilirubin in the amniotic fluid and who performed the first fetal transfusions for fetal anemia.
ABO blood groups, Rhesus factor, and anaphylactic reactions due to Hymenoptera stings.
TLDR
No statistically significant interactions were observed between the ABO blood group and anaphylactic reactions to Hymenoptera.
Prevalence of ABO and Rh blood groups and their association with Transfusion-Transmissible Infections (TTIs) among Blood Donors in Islamabad, Pakistan
TLDR
The study revealed that blood group B is most prevalent among donors, followed by blood groups O, A, and AB, and it was revealed that group B donors had the greatest risk of viral infection with HBV, HCV, HIV, and Syphilis.
ABO and Rhesus Blood Group Distribution in Mogadishu, Somalia
TLDR
This is the first study about blood group distribution in Mogadishu based on a large number of blood type tests and hospital data and can give an idea about how much fluctuations may occur in the frequency of blood group types in emigrant populations over many years.

Further Observations on Individual Differences of Human Blood.
TLDR
With a method similar to that employed for the detection of M, namely, suitable absorption of certain rabbit immune sera for human blood, two other agglutinable qualities were found which may be denoted as N and P.
A New Agglutinable Factor Differentiating Individual Human Bloods.
By absorbing a number of anti-human blood immune sera from rabbits with the blood corpuscles of certain individuals regardless of the group, fluids were obtained from a few sera which give a sharp
A ‘New’ Human Blood Group Antigen of Frequent Occurrence
TLDR
There is so far no definite evidence in either case that the agglutinin concerned is the result of immunization of the mother by the fœtus, but the red cells of one of the jaundiced babies were not Agglutinated by its mother's serum, which points towards the aggLUTinin being spontaneous rather than immune.
Population genetics of the peoples of Iran I. Genetic polymorphisms of blood groups, serum proteins and red cell enzymes
TLDR
Comparison of gene frequencies with the few available samples of Iranian populations demonstrated an intra-ethnic and extensive overall genetic diversity in the Iranian plateau.
STUDIES ON AN AGGLUTINOGEN (Rh) IN HUMAN BLOOD REACTING WITH ANTI-RHESUS SERA AND WITH HUMAN ISOANTIBODIES
TLDR
Examination of families showed that the agglutinogen is inherited as a simple Mendelian dominant, and the distribution of the factor Rh among white individuals and negroes may indicate racial differences.
An Agglutinable Factor in Human Blood Recognized by Immune Sera for Rhesus Blood
TLDR
The results are of some interest in that they suggest a way of finding individual properties in human blood, namely, with the aid of immune sera against the blood of animals.
ABO AND RH BLOOD GROUPS DISTRIBUTION IN THE POPULATIONS OF LARESTAN AND LAMERD, FARS PROVINCE, IRAN
TLDR
It seemed that the two populations studied in the present investigation were characterized by a higher B and a lower A gene frequencies, which appeared to count for the high level of the B gene in Larestanis and Lamerdis compared with that in other populations of Fars province.
The Duffy blood group system
TLDR
Tests against a large number of human bloods showed that the factor thus defined was one which had not previously been recognised, and some additional observations are presented.
Rare human isoagglutinins and their identification.
TLDR
Following the discovery of the causal relationship of hemolytic disease and transplacental isoimmunization, numerous new blood factors were described with the aid of atypical isoagglutinins other than anti-D, which provided reagents for essential studies on the hereditary nature of the corresponding blood factors and their incidence in various racial groups.
Investigations on the ethnic variability of the ABO blood group polymorphism in Iran.
TLDR
The Iranian Jews reveal clear frequency differences in comparison with all the other Iranian population groups, and it can be assumed that the specific ABO allele frequencies found in the above mentioned ethnic groups are connected with their different geographical origin as well as with their marked endogamy.
