All 2000 healthy students of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta, Nigeria (intakes of 2006/2007 academic session) comprising of 1058 females and 942 males were screened for ABO and Rhesus ‘D’ blood type. The analysis of the results shows O+ (49.75%), A+ (20.30%), B+ (19.60%), AB+ (3.70%), O- (3.95%), A- (1.10%), B- (1.35%) and AB- (0.25%). These values compares well with what has been reported in other countries. The high percentage of blood group O (53.70%) in the new intakes population…

ABO and Rhesus D Blood Groups Distribution among Students in Usmanu Danfodiyo University Sokoto, North Western Nigeria
TLDR
The pattern of distribution of ABO blood groups among students in Sokoto is at variance with other populations particularly among Caucasians, consistent with the general formula O > B ≥ A > AB indicating a preponderance of phenotype B over A.
Haemoglobin Electrophoretic Patterns, ABO and Rhesus D Blood Groups Distribution among Antenatal Women in Sokoto, Nigeria
TLDR
Hemoglobinopathies is prevalent among pregnant women in Sokoto, North Western Nigeria and evidenced based data obtained will facilitate optimum stocking of blood and blood products in blood banks in the area and the management of Haemolytic Transfusion Reaction and Hahemolytic Disease of the Foetus and Newborn.
Blood Group Distribution Pattern among Adult Who Attended Federal Medical Centre, Lokoja, Kogi State, Nigeria
TLDR
The percentage frequency of the ABO and Rhesus distribution pattern of adults who attended the Federal Medical Centre Lokoja, Kogi State, Nigeria for record and health planning is provided.
Prevalence of some haemoglobin variants among students of Usmanu Danfodiyo University , Sokoto , North Western Nigeria
TLDR
The distribution of some haemoglobin variants among students of African descent attending Usmanu Danfodiyo University in Sokoto Nor th Western, Nigeria is determined to help policy makers make informed decisions on pre-marital screening, genetic counseling, neonatal genetic screening and in the management of cases of disputed parentage.
Frequency distribution of hemoglobin variants, ABO and Rhesus blood groups among students of African descent.
TLDR
The frequency of ABO and Rhesus blood groups appeared to be stable and consistent with reports from previous studies in Nigeria, which could imply a decline in hemoglobinopathies among Africans.
Study of Haemoglobinopathies incidence in Ogbonicha District-Ofu LGA, Kogi State, Nigeria.
TLDR
The high prevalence of HbAA with the observed low prevalence ofHbSS variants in this population could imply a decline in haemoglobinopathy in the population, however mass literacy campaign and improved counseling on related genetic issuesshould be encouraged and maintained in order to eradicate haemaldehydeopathy.
ABO and rhesus blood group distribution in Kurds
Background: It is well established that ABO and rhesus (Rh) genes and phenotypes vary widely between ethnic groups and both within and between geographical areas. The aim of this study was to
Association of Some Haemoglobin Variants with ABO and Rhesus D Antigen Phenotype in Kano Metropolis Najib
Haemoglobin (Hb) variants are mutant form of haemoglobin caused by genetic variations. Several researches revealed that some diseases are associated with some specific blood groups. The aim of this
ABH secretors status in Osogbo , Southwestern Nigeria
TLDR
This study shows that secretors are more than non-secretors, secretor status is independent of sex and the ability to secrete ABH substances varies significantly with ABO blood grouping with blood group O secretors being more thanNon-O secretors.

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.
