MRC Blood Group Unit, The Lister Institute, Chelsea Bridge Road, London SW1W 8 RH (England)


Abstract. Red cells of the dominant type of Lu(a–b–) have long been known to be too often Au(a–); too often also are they deficient in the antigens i and P1.

Through the kindness of colleagues we were able to test most members of the eight Lu(a–b–) kindred ourselves: for information about those members whom we did not test we thank Dr. B. P. L. Moore, Miss Charmaine Brice, Dr. J. Darnborough, Miss Betty Francis (Mrs. Hatcher) and Miss Arden Stanbury.
