|Abstract||Background & objectives: Antibodies with haemolytic properties are common within the ABO system. These lytic antibodies are immunoglobulin G (IgG) and in high titres cause haemolysis during blood transfusion. Information on Immunoglobulin types and concentration of ABO haemolysins in Indian population is lacking. The present study was undertaken to know the usefulness of haemolysin test for characterization of immunoglobulin class of ABO antibodies.Methods: Serum samples from 187 0 group blood donors were screened for A and B haemolysins. Thirty five samples were treated with dithiothretiol (DTT) for characterization of Ig class. Antibody titre was compared with grade of haemolysis.Results: Of the 51 strongly haemolytic serum samples, 32 (62.8%) had IgG titres of greater than or equal to64 after treatment with DTT. There was significant association (P<0.05) between grade of haemolysin and anti B IgG titre.Interpretation & conclusion: Haemolysin test was found to be a useful screening test to identify group 0 donors with high levels of IgG anti A and/or anti B for blood transfusion purposes.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
