Blood Groups of Burmese

Nature volume 158, page 629 (02 November 1946) | Download Citation



THERE does not appear to be any record in the literature of blood-group tests made on Burmese subjects; we therefore took a recent opportunity of testing the blood of a number of subjects with regard to ABO and Rh groups. We had intended to group many hundreds, but owing to unforeseen circumstances had to abandon the work after only about two hundred persons had been tested. However, in view of the absence of other published data and the present interest in the racial distribution of the Rh factor, we are publishing this brief report on the results.
