Abstract

STRATTON1, in 1946, described an Rh gene allelomorphic to D and d, to which he gave the name Du. He demonstrated that this allelomorph was inherited in the same way as the other Rh genes. During the last two years we have had the opportunity of testing twenty-eight samples of blood of the genotype Dud, nineteen of which were from unrelated English persons.
