Distribution of ABO and Rh D blood groups in the population of Poonch district, Azad Jammu and Kashmir
AbstractWe evaluated the distribution of ABO and Rhesus [Rh] D blood groups in the population of Poonch district in Azad Jammu and Kashmir. The blood group phenotypes were detected by the classic slide method. The ABO blood group system in the total sample showed the same trend of prevalence as for the general Indian subcontinent [B >/= O > A > AB]. The same trend was found among males, but among females the order of prevalence was different [O B > A > AB]. However, the allelic frequencies in both sexes were in the order of O > B > A. The Rh positive and negative distribution trend in both sexes was also similar
