To determine phenotypic and allelic frequencies of ABO Rhesus D blood groups in a Moroccans blood population, a sample 219 287 blood donors was collected from 15 different regions across the country. The overall ABO antigens frequency was 32.86%, 15.80%, 4.53% and 46.80% for blood groups A, B, AB and O, respectively. In addition, the Rhesus D positive frequency was 91.00%. The allelic frequencies found were 0.2089, 0.1078 and 0.6838 for A, B and O alleles, respectively, and 0.2999 for d allele… CONTINUE READING
