آنکولوژی Blood groups: in Health and Diseases

Abstract
ABO blood type antigens are polymorphic, inherited structures presented on the
surface of red blood cells. Although ABO blood group antigens are the most
important antigens in transfusion medicine but their main role is not clearly
clarified yet. The correlation between ABO blood group and susceptibility to
certain infectious and non-infectious diseases is a controversial issue because lack
of blood type antigens has not been related to significant diseases or health risks.
There are many studies that aim to prove that blood antigens are biologically
active and carbohydrate structures involving to the “cell physiology and human
pathology”. This review summarizes the available data concerning the correlation
between blood group antigens and different aspects of health. We therefore
investigated whether certain blood type antigens could affect susceptibility to
diseases or make a phenotype resistant.
