The Serological Analysis of the A Blood Group Substance(s)

  • J. F. Borel


Methods for the diagnosis of the haemolytic disease of the newborn due to the ABO blood group incompatibility are still quite unsatisfactory (Damerow (1963)). In an attempt to find a new approach, our first step was to survey all the work previously done. This paper reviews briefly what is known about the serological analysis of the A antigen mosaicism.
