Corona study: Severity of Covid-19-the course - a blood group meets, it is especially violent | health

A study suggests that people with a certain blood group are more likely to be affected by severe Covid-19-gradients. What you should know about blood groups.

According to a study, people with a particular blood group, rather heavy Covid-19-gradients* affected. Many often do not know what blood group you have, or how you can find out. What you should know about blood groups .

There are only one or two letters and a Plus or Minus: Really easy to understand - and yet many people do not know their blood group. But do they have to?

Coronavirus: What is the role of the blood group plays at Covid-19?

The blood group of a person could be on the Severity of a Covid-19-disease* influence , as an international team of researchers in the "New England Journal of Medicine" reported Therefore, people with in Germany most common blood group A have . a nearly 50 percent higher risk for a severe course of Infection than those with other blood groups People with blood group 0 according to the study, approximately a 50 percent lower risk for a serious Covid-19-disease.

so Far, the study of the team was the molecular Andre Franke from Kiel University hospital biologists only as a Preprint available. That is, it has not yet been reviewed by independent scientists. Now it is published in a renowned journal. The researchers have taken blood samples from 1.610 Covid patients in seven hospitals in Spain and Italy, which are treated with oxygen or artificial respiration had to be. As a control group blood served samples of 2.205 randomly selected men and women from the same countries. In the focus, unlike in similar studies of scientists in the United States and China the genome of the human : "These two groups have studied human serologically, we came from the genetic side," explains Franke, according to the German press Agency. " This brings additional evidence ."

In Detail, the researchers identified a gene variant on chromosome 9 , which went hand in hand with a heavy Covid-19-history. The AB0 is a Gene - of him the blood depends to a group of people. Patients with blood group A had to suffer to these findings, a higher risk, in the context of the Covid-19-disease of respiratory problems. Patients with blood group 0 were less affected. In addition, the researchers discovered a more a genetic variant on chromosome 3 , whose carrier had compared to other people, a double risk for a severe course. Here, too, there was a striking number of people with blood group A. The findings could be a basis for the development of drugs, so Franke.

Due to these new research results many people, what you know about your blood group and blood groups of the General questions now. You know, for example, your blood group? Who still has his mother's passport, or to donate blood, should affirm the question. However, many do not know, whether it A positive, 0 negative, or perhaps so that you would be a small minority - AB-negative is . But: you have to know his blood group at all? And if so, why? the Important questions and answers about the topic :

Coronavirus-study: What are the blood groups are there?

AB, A, B and 0 are the most well-known . These are specified in combination with the rhesus factor can be positive or negative.

the Bottom line is there is so configurations . Most people in Germany are, according to the blood donation services of the German Red cross (DRK) A positive (approximately 37 percent) 0 positive (around 35 percent), most rarest of the combination of AB negative (of around 1 percent is represented).

ABO and Rhesus only 2 among many blood group systems. Another, which is, for example, the German red cross blood donor cards, is the Kell System (Kell-positive or Kell-negative).

Where are the information on the blood group?

Next to the blood donation card , you get a couple of weeks after his first donation sent to you, you find yourself in T . From these two Statements apart, there are no papers that documented the blood group, explains the professional Association of laboratory physicians. Physicians can. when needed in the vaccination card, blood group* enter It is not found there, by default.

blood group to determine: what is a blood test at the family doctor?

the majority of the laboratory tests, the blood group is irrelevant , is the trade Association declared. Therefore, you will not given on the Findings in the rule. In the case of studies designed specifically to blood group that looks different, of course.

Basically, by the way: The blood group must confirm a doctor's hand with a signature. This is, for example, in the case of automated Print out for the patient is not possible, in which the main values of the laboratory analysis are summarized.

it Is the emergency of advantage to know his blood group?

no. Because you will prior to surgery or in cases of emergency, in principle, once determined . The lasts according to the laboratory doctors around 45 minutes.

interesting : AB0, Rhesus, Kell: know your own blood group.

What if someone needs immediately blood?

gets the person to the blood group is determined, canned food with blood group 0 negative - this is a Universal-donation of blood can be provided.

What is the use, therefore, the Knowledge of the blood group?

Sought-after, but with only around six percent share in the German population is quite rarely represented, according to the donor with the blood group 0 negative , to explain the DRC-blood donor services.

in addition, they are the only ones, the only your own blood group to tolerate>

blood the group was, however, in the case of Plasma donations sought , because there could be any recipient transfused.

And else?

It can also be as a Gimmick quite interesting. Expectant mothers and fathers provides the DRC online, for example, a Tool, with the possible blood groups of offspring can be determined.
