Discovery of a New Rare Blood Type Could Save The Lives of Future Newborns

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, futurism

The devastating loss of a pair of newborns has provided critical insights into a rare set of blood types spotted for the first time in humans 40 years ago.

By unravelling the molecular identity of the relatively new blood type known as the Er system, a new study could hopefully prevent such tragedies in the future.

“This work demonstrates that even after all the research conducted to date, the simple red blood cell can still surprise us,” says University of Bristol cell biologist Ash Toye.
