Since protein is required for the formation of precollagen the significance of Ravdin's work becomes obvious, yet it is remarkable that even when protein is deficient healing will proceed normally if methionine is present. Research of great interest in this respect has been going on for some time at the Royal College of Surgeons under the direction of Professor Slome, and has shown that the ill effects of x rays upon wound healing can be overcome by giving cystiamine. I have quoted the…

The immutability of erythrocyte antigens during the lifetime of the individual was regarded as undisputed, but several reports have appeared introducing a new and, to a certain extent, contradictory point of view.
Anti-Bisohemagglutinins in the serum of a patient with a weak red cell B antigen.
The occurrence of variants of the erythrocyte B agglutinogen, although rare, is of considerable practical importance because it may lead to errors in blood grouping. Subgroups of the B antigen have
Tn‐activation with Acquired A‐like Antigen
The red blood cells of Mr. R. W., an 86‐year‐old type O patient with Proteus mirabilis wound infection, anemia, and thrombocytopenia were found to be polyagglutinable due to Tn‐activation, to be
Acquired B antigen associated with infection by bacillus cereus: in vivo and in vitro transformation of A1 red cells
In another patient with the acquired B antigen reported here, the phenomena observed are complementary to those described by Stayboldt et al, and some of the results were presented on the 17 th congress of the International Society of Blood Transfusion.

ABO incompatibility between mother and fetus may produce infertility or hemolytic disease of the newborn, and persons of certain blood groups have an increased susceptibility to peptic ulcer or gastric cancer.

Acquired B antigen and polyagglutination in a apparently healthy blood donor.
Atypical immunologic tolerance in a human blood group chimera.
The conclusion is made that interfetal transplantation of erythropoietic tissue is the most likely basis for the state of blood chimerism in this individual and that human blood group Chimerism may be achieved by means other than that of classic immunologic tolerance.
Chemical basis of ABO subgroups Insights into blood group A subtypes revealed by glycolipid analysis
It was shown that the probable explanation between the A1 and the A2, apart from the quantitative aspects, is that the A-type 4 structure seems to be missing in the A 2 phenotype, which leads to a proposal to establish the 31 blood group system, tentatively named FORS.
