An advance toward blood transfusions that require no typing
from American Chemical Society
Scientists are reporting an "important step" toward development of a universal blood product that would eliminate the need to "type" blood to match donor and recipient before transfusions. A report on the "immunocamoflage" technique, which hides blood cells from antibodies that could rigger a potentially fatal immune reaction that occurs when blood types do not match, appears in the ACS journal, Biomacromolecules.
