Abstract : The monograph, which was originally published in German in 1941, deals with the important problem of the occurrence of blood group specific antigens in the tissues of man. A careful quantitative study with a mathematical analysis was carried out using two basic methods--the inhibition of isoagglutination for the presence of water-soluble group specific antigens and the complement fixation method for the demonstration of both alcohol-soluble and water-soluble group specific substances. The treatise presents further experimental proof that the antigens representing the A and B substances are not limited to the red blood cells but occur in most organs of the body with the possible exception of the brain.
