The capacity possessed by some rabbit immune sera produced with blood of Rhesus monkeys, of reacting with human bloods that contain the agglutinogen M has been reported previously. 1 , 2 Subsequently it has been found that another individual property of human blood (which may be designated as Rh) can be detected by certain of these sera. Upon exhaustion of such a serum with selected bloods, for instance OM, the absorbed serum still agglutinated the majority (39 out of 45) of other human bloods… Expand
