Karl Landsteiner was born in Vienna in 1868. He graduated from the Vienna Medical School in 1891, which dominated one of his most productive and formative periods in the following years. Although he devoted himself to research in bacteriology, haematology and immunology, he tried to maintain a close relationship with clinical medicine. Landsteiner’s intellectual curiosity was centred on fundamental questions about the specificity of antisera directed against various antigens. His research with… 
Karl Otto Landsteiner (1868–1943). Physician–biochemist–immunologist
Karl Landsteiner applied the sciences of biochemistry, pathology, microbiology, and immunology in medical research to great success during the first half of the 20th century. Although he is
Ludwik Hirszfeld: A pioneer of transfusion and immunology during the world wars and beyond
TLDR
Ludwik Hirszfeld was the first in Poland to put the theory of serological conflict between mother and foetus into clinical practice, saving the lives of almost 200 children by introducing exchange transfusions.
Medicine in philately, Karl Landsteiner: the father of blood grouping
TLDR
This paper provides an overview on the discovery of the blood grouping and the physician behind this discovery, Karl Landsteiner, through philately.
O sistema de grupo sangüíneo Rh
TLDR
This study presents the results of an analysis in textbooks that points out inconsistencies about the content related to blood group systems.
Karl Landsteiner (1868-1943): originator of ABO blood classification.
TLDR
It was Karl Landsteiner, a 1930 Nobel laureate, who classified human blood into groups based on the presence of naturally occurring agglutinating antibodies, and whose findings eventually established safe transfusion procedures.
Blood transfusion; additional historical aspects. Part 1. The birth of transfusion immunology
TLDR
This article describes in more detail how the pioneers in human transfusion immunology in the late 19th century and early 20th century learnt to recognise and avoid ABO incompatibility, and includes some hitherto obscure and rarely cited material.
Molekularne podstawy układu grupowego ABO Molecular background of the ABO blood group system
TLDR
The mechanism of the synthesis of A and B antigens, the molecular background of ABO gene variablity, their allelic variants, and possible mechanisms by which they emerge are described are described.
The History of Lectinology
TLDR
This chapter will explain how the term ‘lectin’ is rooted in the experimental work of the field’s pioneers, and presents a graphic overview on the chronology how lectinology developed.
FREQUENCY OF KELL ANTIGENS (K & K) AMONG BLOOD DONORS OF NORTHERN PAKISTAN
TLDR
This study confirmed that the k (celleno) blood group antigen was highly prevalent antigen in Pakistani population while the K (kelleher) antigen was present in a relatively lower frequency.
Wallace H. Coulter: Decades of invention and discovery

    Cytometry. Part A : the journal of the International Society for Analytical Cytology
  • 2013
TLDR
Coulter shaped the technologies that ultimately drove hematology in a new direction, one that remains on a critical pathway linking technology innovation all the way to true translational impact.

[Poliomyelitis in Landsteiner's time and today].
TLDR
It took another 45 years before the first polio vaccine was available and another 5 years until the oral vaccine was implemented and the incidence of poliomyelitis decreased dramatically in industrial countries as a result of vaccination.

TLDR
Karl Landsteiner began his work on syphilis research together with notable members of the Viennese School of Medicine, namely Ernest Finger, Rudolf Müller, Viktor Mucha, Otto Pötzl and others and provided the basic facts for the Jadasson-Lewandowsky Law.

TLDR
Though Darwinism no longer allowed biologists to assume the design of parts for a purpose, it became almost impossible not to think in terms of their usefulness in the struggle for existence, particularly where the usefulness was as clear as was the case with the mechanisms of immunity.
Epitope Recognition Since Landsteiner’s Discovery 100 Years Since the Discovery of Human Blood Groups
TLDR
This work has shown that by using monoclonal antibodies and site directed mutagenesis to map the epitopes of the blood group Rh D antigen, the immune response to cardiac antigens can be modelled.

TLDR
Analysis of the development of these proteins on erythroid cells during erythropoiesis, ex vivo, has provided clues to their functions and a useful set of markers for the study of erymorphology, especially in the complex Rh and MNS systems.
The Rh blood group system: a review.
TLDR
The purpose of this review is to provide an overview of several aspects of the Rh blood group system, including the confusing terminology, progress in molecular understanding, and how this developing knowledge can be used in the clinical setting.
[Biochemical basis of the ABO system subgroups].
TLDR
This review article offers a survey of the biochemical and molecular biological basis of the ABO subgroups, which include the rare 'Bombay' phenotype and inactive variants of the secretor gene (Se) are responsible for the non-secretor status.
Erythroid cell adhesion molecules Lutheran and LW in health and disease.
TLDR
Levels of Lu gp and LW gp expression on sickle red cells are greater than on normal red cells and sickleRed cells adhere to alpha 5-containing laminins, suggesting that the Lu and LW molecules may contribute to the vaso-occlusive events associated with episodes of acute pain in sickle cell disease.
An Unusual Case of Intra-group Agglutination
TLDR
A rare property in the blood of a patient whose serum showed an iso-agglutinin of moderate activity, which agglutinated about 80 per cent of the bloods of her own group, must have been stimulated by a factor other than repeated transfusion.
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.
