    The Significance of the Human Genome Project for Blood Transfusion Therapy
    Author(s): Alireza Ranjbar*

    The Human Genome Project (HGP) has had significant implications for transfusion medicine, particularly in the areas of blood group typing and transfusion reactions. Blood group typing is an essential component of transfusion medicine, and the HGP has helped to identify new blood groups and refine the characterization of existing ones. The identification of new blood groups has facilitated the development of new reagents and improved blood typing methods. For example, the discovery of the Vel blood group, which is now recognized as one of the most clinically significant blood groups, was made possible through the HGP. The HGP has also improved our understanding of transfusion reactions. By identifying genes that are associated with the immune response, researchers have been able to investigate the mechanisms underlying transfusion reactions, such as hemolytic transfusion reactions.
