A Review of Human Blood Groups
Human Blood and Serum Groups, coauthored by Profs. Prokop and Uhlenbruek, was a remarkable collaboration of two German scientists, one from East Berlin and the other from Cologne, which became a benchmark text throughout Europe. The second German edition, translated and published in English in 1969 by Doctor Raven of Guy's Hospital, London, became a widely cited reference work in Western immunohematology. Although no further English translations of other major publications or editions by Prokop and his associates have appeared in 18 years, their work has continued to capture the attention and imagination of both expert and student in English speaking countries. Other more current publications are considered authoritative by workers in immunohematology and forensic laboratory sciences.
