ABO(H) System

  • Helmut Schenkel-Brunner


The ABO system was discovered in 1900 by Karl Landsteiner. With his assumption of two erythrocyte antigens, A and B, Landsteiner found it possible to classify human individuals into four blood groups depending whether one, both, or none of these antigenic characters were present on the cells [228]. He also recognised that the sera of individuals lacking one or both antigens usually contain anti-A and/or anti-B isoagglutinins (see Tab. 5.1).
