Blood Groups
Antigens and Antibodies
(1) is the clumping of RBCs after a transfusion reaction

ABO Blood Group
Based on the presence or absence of (?)
RBCs have only one of four possible combinations
This blood type is (5)
?) two major protein antigens – A and B 1) Only A 2) Only B 3) Both A and B 4) Or neither A nor B 5) inherited
Rh Blood Group
Named after the (1) in which it was first studied
Most prevalent antigen in humans is (2)
If present, blood is said to be (3)
If absent, it is (4)
