What is the different between the blood group "a Rh 'd' positive" and "o Rh 'd' positive"?

What is the different between the blood group "a Rh 'd' positive" and "o Rh 'd' positive"?

Group A and O: The different is one has blood group o+ - and the other has blood group a+. Group o has no antigen a and b, but has antibody to a and b. So, group o is a universal donor- and the blood can be given to people with different blood group. Group a has antigen a, and antibody b. So, can receive group a or o blood. Group o only can receive blood group o if needed any blood transfusion. ...Read more

What is the importance of having a negative blood group?

What is the importance of having a negative blood group?

How successful is the kidney transplant if the donor has a different blood group? Does the graft have chancesof failing early?

Great if compatible: Excellent outcomes occur for kidney donors with different blood groups than their recipients if the pair is compatible (don a-recip ab; don b - recip ab; don o-recip a, b orab). Incompatible paired kidney transplants are subject to antibody based rejection due to the difference in blood types. Prevention with plasmapheresis, use of Rituxan (rituximab) is good not perfect. Yes, early failure can still happen. ...Read more

How could blood groups originate?

How could blood groups originate?

Genetic drift: There is no obvious selective advantage for A, B or O in nature, and these seem to be the result of random mutations.
