Abstract

Blood groups were determined among 118 sputum positive pulmonary tuberculosis cases. 17,104 blood donors and non-tubercular patients were taken as representatives of general population of Northern part of Rajasthan, as regards frequency distribution of A, B, O group is concerned. Rate of inactivation of isoniazid was assessed in above mentioned patients. It was observed that there was preponderance of blood group B, closely followed by group O among general population. Group O was found to occur significantly in higher proportion of sputum positive general population. This study also .revealed that there was no association or correlation between rate of inactivation of isoniazid and frequency distribution of blood groups. Since the number of tubercular patients studied is small the above results therefore need confirmation in large series of patients.
