Study group discussion: Removal of antigens from RBC's

Did anybody know that we can remove A and B antigen? :O

From what kind of RBCs?

Didn't know!

Yes, I read a research while back. The idea was simple, the O group has no antigen naturally, so they thought about removing A and B antigen too.. They first used coffee beans to remove it but it required acidic pH that resulted in hemolysis, finally they found the glycosades in bettle to remove A and B..

Nice.
