Although blood type AB seems to be the least frequent among humans, there are eight potential combinations that may be generated using A, B, O, and D+ or D-.
According to Stanford Medicine School, 0.6 percent of the population possesses that kind of blood in their veins, and although rates fluctuate, it never surpasses one percent.
However, there is an outlier: the so-called golden blood, which only accounts for roughly 50 persons worldwide.
Thomas, whose case was highlighted in the 2014 edition of the journal Mosaic, was the one who discovered this sort of blood.
One of the typical features of this blood is the lack of an antigen. Rhnull is the scientific term for this kind of blood, which was first found in 1961 and has since been documented in over 40 instances. Although it is dangerous for people who have this feature, it has the potential to save a lot of lives.
Because its red blood cells contain antigen receptors, the “golden blood” may be detected. Your immune system will only absorb antigens that match your blood type if you have a transfusion. If you don’t, your body will assault your blood cells, perhaps killing you.
If you have “golden blood,” however, your body will mend the blood if you get any kind of blood that has the Rh antigen.
People with this blood type are encouraged to donate because of this. “Universal donors” are the folks who fall under this category.
