Two New blood Groups Found by U.S. Researchers

Two New blood Groups Found by U.S. Researchers

With the common blood type list that included blood group A, B, AB or O with negative or positive aspects, U. S. researchers after following numerous studies are giving two more new types of blood group categories namely, Langereis blood type and Junior blood type.

Researchers explain in their findings that though both the blood groups are found very rare, they exist among several ethnicities.

"More than 50,000 Japanese are thought to be Junior negative and may encounter blood transfusion problems or mother-fetus incompatibility", University of Vermont Biologist Mr. Bryan Ballif wrote in his study appearing with its findings in this month's issue of Nature Genetics.

The findings came out when Prof Ballif and his fellow researchers discovered from their findings about the presence of two proteins in red blood cells of the human beings, which they said were majorly featuring these lesser-known and rarely found blood types.

Statements from Prof Ballif further cleared that both the molecules in scientific language are specialized transport proteins namely ABCB6 and ABCG2. He supported his new finding by saying that his new scientific finding can primarily serve beneficial for the organ transplant patients.

Getting better with transplants can definitely help professionals to make good and efficient match to serve the patients health with the healthiest treatment, added Prof Ballif in a release about his study.

Medical science has sometimes witnessed numerous rejections in the transplants. Thus professionals doubt higher possibilities of the affect of the newly discovered proteins behind the failure of the transplant surgeries.

This recent research by the researchers from the University of Vermont is hoping to save the lives of thousands of people in the future, findings of which have been issued in the February issue of Nature Genetics.
