    some people may consider bambay bl gr to be a subtype of O-...........they are right in their logic as the abo system is based on A & B antigens only and not the h antigen
    The important distinction comes in blood transfusion

    O- pts do not have anti h antibodies in their blood while bombay bl gr does

    so bombay pts can be transfused only with bombay blood..........but they can donate blood to O- pts


    (during transfusion cross matching between donors cells and recipients plasma)
