Blood type switch

O-type blood can be transfused safely into humans of any blood-type without medical risk - the problem is that it's not always readily available for those who desperately need blood. Now an international team of scientists believe they have found a way to convert A, B and AB blood types into O-type, making it safe to use in transfusions. Professor Martin Olsson of Lund University Hospital in Sweden is one of the report's authors.

PROFESSOR OLSSON: That's what we're looking at - to get a unified blood supply that is not fragmented due to the different groups. The dream scenario as I see it is that all those blood units drawn from blood donors would be converted if they're not group-O from the start, so to speak. That is approximately half of all blood units.

Professor Olssen says the conversion technique would be cost-effective and would take about an hour at room temperatures. The process promises not only to increase the stock of blood available for transfusions but could also prevent the accidental transfusion of the wrong blood group into patients. Early-stage clinical trials are now underway.


另外,第一段可以幫我找出keywords 跟main point....

    O 類型血液可能是安全地transfused 入任一種血液類型的人沒有醫療風險- 問題是它總不是欣然可利用的為那些絕望地需要血液。現在科學家的一個國際隊相信他們發現了一個方式對改變信仰者A 、B 和AB 血型入O 類型, 使它安全使用在滲流。馬丁・Olsson 教授隆德大學醫院在瑞典是報告的作者的當中一個。

    OLSSON 教授: 那是什麼我們看- 得到不被分割的歸結於不同的小組的統一的供血。夢想情節因為我看它是, 所有那些血液單位得出從供血者會被轉換如果他們不是小組O 從一開始, 亦所謂。那是近似一半所有血液單位。

    Olssen 教授說轉換技術會是有效的, 會需要一個小時在室溫。處理諾言不僅增加血液股票可利用為滲流但能並且防止錯誤血型的偶然滲流入患者。及早階段臨床試驗現在是進行中
