The origin of Blood Brothers is said to be Middle English during 1350-1400. Depending on where in the World this oath was and is taken to this day, depends on how the ritual is preformed. It is the intertwining of one another’s blood as to make a connection, spiritually. I am wondering if blood type reactions were noted if the “oath” was null. For instance, rh incompatibly…would this “oath” sensitize a rhesus negative individual? Would there be an immune response? Would there be visual agglutination of the blood? Was the “Blood Brother” ritual meant to find a common connection related to blood type?

ANSWER: Yes. The recipients blood type eventually changes to the donor type. That means if you had a blood type of A+ prior to transplant and your donor had a blood type of O, eventually your blood type would become O. I may take several weeks, possibly months for your original blood type to disappear, but eventually it will.

“The present study sought to expand the limited evidence that sexual orientation is influenced by genetic factors. This was accomplished by seeking statistical differences between heterosexuals and homosexuals for four traits that are known to be genetically determined: eye color, natural hair color, blood type, and the Rhesus factor. Using a sample of over 7,000 U.S. and Canadian college students supplemented with additional homosexual subjects obtained through internet contacts, we found no significant differences between heterosexuals and homosexuals regarding eye color or hair color. In the case of blood type and the Rh factor, however, interesting patterns emerged. Heterosexual males and females exhibited statistically identical frequencies of the A blood type, while gay men exhibited a relatively low incidence and lesbians had a relatively high incidence (p < .05). In the case of the Rh factor, unusually high proportions of homosexuals of both sexes were Rh- when compared to heterosexuals (p < .06). The findings suggest that a connection may exist between sexual orientation and genes both on chromosome 9 (where blood type is determined) and on chromosome 1 (where the Rh factor is regulated).”

Group A and B Subgroups
The serum of group B persons contains two antibodies: anti A and anti A1. By proper absorption, the two antibodies can be separated. Cells of group A that react with anti A1 are part of the subgroup A1. Cells that react with anti A but not with antiA1 fall into subgroups weaker than A1, thus being classified as A2.
Subgroup A2: make up 20 percent of the A gene pool, and have less H changed to A antigen because of the smaller amount of sites on the cells compared to A1. Could produce anti A1.
*** Subgroups of B are rare in most populations. They are usually recognized by variations in the strength of a reaction with anti B. There is no reagent available to distinguish among them. The patient’s serum may contain anti B antibodies.
ABO antibodies and antigens
Antibodies produced by exposure to antigens (bacteria and plants) are not seen until four to six months old. The anti A and anti B found in the serum of a newborns is of maternal origin. In healthy individuals, ABO antibodies are always present peaking at age five to ten years.
Percentage of ABO Antigens and Antibodies in United States Populations
|Group||Red Cell Antigens||Antibodies||% of U.S. Population|
|O||No A or B antigens||Anti A, Anti B, & Anti A,B||50|
|AB||A & B||No antibodies||4|
|A1||A & A1||Anti B||30|
|A2||A||Anti B (may develop anti A1)||1|
|B||B||Anti A & Anti A1||15|
***ABO antigen frequency can vary in other populations with different ethnic mixes.
The ONLY True Universal Blood Donor

FACTS ABOUT BOMBAY BLOOD:
1. This type is commonly mistaken as type O
3. It is lacking the H antigen that we all have
4. ONLY 179 people in India have this type
5. ONLY 4 people in India are reported as having Rh- type of Bombay (hh-)
~ ~ ~
Understanding The Bombay Blood Group:
People with O blood group have only antibodies A and B and no antigens.
It is not generally known that all these groups have an H antigen in the blood as well. There are very few people who do not have this antigen H also in their blood. These people are known to have BOMBAY BLOOD.
Why does Bombay Blood Group generally type as O?
Most places where blood type tests are done, the presence & absence of AB and Rh alone is tested in the blood. Bombay Blood Group does not have A or B antigens, it types as O blood. It is only when a specific test for H antigen is done that it can be differentiated between O and Bombay Blood group.
Bombay Blood is the ONLY true Universal Donor…they also can only receive blood from their own type.
The power of stems cells are great.
What is artificial blood?
Blood produced from stem cells and can be manufactured as type “O-negative”, which is produced by only 7 % of the World and is suitable for use in up to 98 % of population.
A success story…
“A French doctor has completed the first-ever artificial blood transfusion after extracting stem cells from a patient‘s bone marrow, which were then used to grow the red blood cells under laboratory settings. After five days, 94 to 100 percent of the blood cells remained circulating in the body. After 26 days, 41 to 63 percent remained, which is a normal survival rate for naturally produced blood cells. The cells carried oxygen throughout the patient’s body, just as normal red blood cells would.”
