+ - Possibly convert all transfusion blood Type O

Submitted by UnanimousCoward
UnanimousCoward writes: The BBC has an article that talks about a submission to Nature Biotechnology (not the current issue) in which scientists claim to have discovered a technique to convert all blood into Type O with the discovery of an enzyme that can strip the A and B antigens. This has implications to transform the stored blood supply into transfusable blood for all. It does not address the RH negative issue, though.

Practical people would be more practical if they would take a little more time for dreaming. -- J. P. McEvoy
