Program Description: The ABO system, first described by Karl Landsteiner in 1900, remains the most important blood group system in transfusion medicine and transplantation. While testing for ABO is a requirement for blood donors, a standard part of pretransfusion testing for patients, and a most basic concept in transfusion medicine, our understanding of the ABO system continues to expand as new ABO alleles are routinely discovered. It is imperative for transfusion medicine professionals to have a comprehensive understanding of this most important blood group system. This program will offer a thorough overview of the ABO blood group system, beginning with a description of the biochemical and structural aspects of ABO antigens. The importance of ABO testing, from routine testing for transfusion to monitoring antibody titers for transplant, will be discussed. Causes and resolution of ABO discrepancies will be highlighted. Additionally, molecular aspects of the ABO blood group system will be reviewed, including both the applications and limitations of ABO genotyping.
