Human Blood Groups is a comprehensive and fully referenced text covering scientific and clinical aspects of red cell surface antigens, including: serology, inheritance, biochemistry, molecular genetics, biological functions and clinical significance in transfusion medicine. Over a century has passed since Landsteiner discovered the human blood groups, making the practice of blood transfusion possible. Yet, in the years since the last editions were published, new blood groups have been discovered, several blood group genes have been cloned, and the molecular backgrounds of numerous blood group variants have been worked out. All this new information has made the production of a third edition of Human Blood Groups timely.
