How many blood group systems are currently recognized by the International Society of Blood Transfusion?
33 blood group systems
International Society of Blood Transfusion has recently recognized 33 blood group systems.
How many blood group systems are there ISBT?
The 30 human blood group system genes have been identified and sequenced and all the polymorphisms are now known.
Who is ISBT?
In India, an Inter State Bus Terminal or Inter-State Bus Terminus (ISBT) is a bus terminus that provides bus service to destinations located in other states. Mostly ISBT Term is used in the Northern Part of India, In the western part of India, ST Stand or State Transport Term is used.
What is Rh factor?
Rhesus (Rh) factor is an inherited protein found on the surface of red blood cells. If your blood has the protein, you’re Rh positive. If your blood lacks the protein, you’re Rh negative. Rh positive is the most common blood type.
What is MN factor?
The MNS antigen system is a human blood group system based upon two genes (glycophorin A and glycophorin B) on chromosome 4. There are currently 50 antigens in the system, but the five most important are called M, N, S, s, and U.
Are there 33 blood types?
ABO and Rh are the blood groups we talk about most often. But there are actually 33 different blood groups! Combined, they represent over 300 antigens! Some of the more well-known groups include the MNS, P, Lutheran, Kelly, Lewis, Duffy, and Kidd groups.
What are the 36 types of blood groups?
The main blood types are:
- A positive.
- A negative.
- B positive.
- B negative.
- AB positive.
- AB negative.

What is the paediatric subgroup for transfusion?
We have one shared subgroup, the Paediatric Subgroup of the Clinical Transfusion and the Haemovigilance Working Party (chaired by Gemma Crighton ). This subgroup has a particular interest in neonatal and paediatric transfusion adverse events, reporting and definitions.
What is the numerical terminology used for blood group classification?
The numerical terminology was devised primarily for computer storage of information on blood group antigens and to provide a framework for a genetic classification. The numerical terminology is not suitable for everyday communication and many scientists working in the field of human blood groups prefer not to use it in publications.
How many types of blood groups are there?
The International Society of Blood Transfusion (ISBT) Working Party for Red Cell Immunogenetics and Blood Group Terminology (ISBT WP) maintains an official record of all currently recognised blood group systems. There are currently 43 recognised blood group systems containing 345 red cell antigens (June 2021).
Who is the chairperson of the paediatric transfusion committee?
Our Chairperson is Mary Townsend. We have one shared subgroup, the Paediatric Subgroup of the Clinical Transfusion and the Haemovigilance Working Party (chaired by Gemma Crighton ).
