Now Blood groups can be converted with new technique.
Scientists have developed a way of converting one blood group into another. So what is the use of this technique?
The technique potentially enables blood from groups A, B and AB to be converted into group O, which can be safely transplanted into any patient.
The method, which makes use of newly discovered enzymes, may help relieve shortages of blood for transfusions.
The new technique works by using bacterial enzymes to cut sugar molecules from the surface of red blood cells.
