Low frequencies of rh negatives among HIV/AIDS patients
Mike Dammann August 4, 20180
In the past few years, I have written several articles related to the correlation between the rh negative blood factor and HIV/AIDS. The main objective was to dispute the claim that O negatives cannot get HIV/AIDS. This has been easily disproven by several studies out there listing the presence of patients by blood type. And O negative was there. I also had people from our fanpage reach out to me who are O negative and have HIV. In other words, the irresponsibility of such a claim needed to be addressed and as heavily attacked as possible.
Even when there is protection, it doesn’t equal immunity.
Yes: O negative people CAN contract the HIV virus. And rh negatives in general are not immune to HIV!
But are we protected in some manner? Are we less likely to get AIDS?
The answer: It seems so!
At least according to a few studies I have referenced.
Once again, here are some of the highlights previously presented:
HIV infection has been reported to occur in select blood groups in some regions of the world. A study by Sayal et al. in India reported a preponderance for infection in group O Rh(D)-positive men and least among groups B positive and D-negative ones.
An Ivory Coast study shows higher percentages of rh positives than rh negatives infected with HIV. However: The difference was not significant enough to determine protective function.

Similarly, prevalence of HIV-serotypes is significantly higher (97.8%) among Rhesus D positive subjects than their Rhesus D negative counterparts in which 2.2% was recorded (P<0.05). This finding was in consonance with the results of Omoriegie et al. which reported that Rhesus D positive subjects were more susceptible to infections.
Rh negative blood does not make you immune to HIV/AIDS
