Distribution of the AB0 and Rh Blood Group Antigen System in the Population of Long Livers in the Carpathian Region
The features of distribution of the AB0 and Rh blood group antigen system in the population of the long livers in the Carpathian region have been analysed. Associated analysis of the duration of life of the AB0 and Rh blood group antigen system determined that long livers of Carpathian region had the highest percentage of owners of phenotype A (II) (39.09%). As for the frequency of phenotypes of the AB0 antigen system among long livers the following proportion was done: male long livers - A (II) > B(III) > 0(I) > AB(IV) and female long livers - 0(I)> A(II)> B(III)> AB(IV). In 86.97% of long livers, the Rh (Rh +) trait was shown but in the control group the same trait was in 85.95% of the people. The findings allow to create complex prognostic models of human longevity.
