Abstract

The demand for blood and blood products has increased due to advances in medical science, Population growth and increased life expectancy. Due to this the aim of present study to determine the ABO blood group system of various community of Biraul block. Blood samples were collected by door to door survey. The frequencies of ABO blood group distribution indicated blood group B was predominant in three Castes i.e. Dusadh, Chamar and Pasi followed by O, A and AB respectively. While in Brahman and Mallah, blood group O was predominant followed B,A and AB respectively. This study helps us to know the exact distribution of blood group in various castes of Biraul block of Darbhanga.

Keywords: ABO blood group, biraul block, dusadh, chamar, pasi, Mallah
