The frequency of ABO blood group was carried out among male inmates in a typical Nigerian prison. This study sought to correlate blood grouping with crime to determine whether a relationship could be established. The results obtained will serve as a platform for instituting awareness to relevant authorities and the public at large. The experiment was carried out at the hospital premises of the Kirikiri medium prison Apapa Lagos Nigeria. A total of 501 male inmates voluntarily provided…

Frequency of ABO blood groups in the Eastern region of Saudi Arabia.
The results show that the most frequent blood group in Saudis is O-positive, while blood group A is observed at a lower frequency relative to values from Western populations, whereas a significant increase inBlood group B combined with a slight increase in blood group AB was recorded.
Trend of blood groups and Rh factor in the twin cities of Rawalpindi and Islamabad.
The determination of the frequency of blood groups in the region would not only help in blood transfusion services, but also eliminate the risk of erythroblastosis foetalis in the neonates.
ABO and Rhesus ‘D’ blood type distribution in students admitted into Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta, Nigeria in 2006
The high percentage of blood group O (53.70%) in the new intakes population provides an advantage in terms of availability of blood for transfusion especially in emergencies.
Frequency distribution 0f ABO, RH blood groups and blood genotypes among the cell biology and genetics students of University of Lagos, Nigeria
One hundred and fifty students were randomly selected from the Department of Cell Biology and Genetics of University of Lagos, Akoka, Nigeria for ABO, RH blood groups and 6 haemoglobin genotypes studies, finding the RhD distribution also varies among the four ABO blood groups.
Genetics and Forensics: Making the National DNA Database.
The development of DNA profiling and the establishment and development of the UK National DNA Database is discussed as an instance of the 'scientification of police work' (Ericson and Shearing 1986) in which the police uses of science and technology have a recursive effect on their future development.

Acquired B antigen and polyagglutination in a patient with gastric cancer
Erythrocytes from a patient with blood type of A1 became nongenetically reactive with A (anti-B) serum, following the development of gastric cancer, and in vitro acetylation of the erythrocyte antigens abolished both the acquired B antigen and the polyagglutination.
B antigen acquired by normal A1 red cells exposed to a patient's serum
Findings and the abolition of the acquired B antigen by treatment of the patient's red cells with acetic anhydride support the deacetylation theory of the genesis of the acquire B antigen.
