Abstract:
Aim: The aim of the present study was to investigate the relationship between the ABO blood group description and the cases of dengue hemorrhagic fever.
Methods: Using a case-control design, this research used observational analytics. Only one method of data collection was used. Patients experiencing a certain impact or condition are called cases in a case-control study, whereas a control group does not experience any effects. The goal is to find out whether a certain risk factor really affects the illness. To do this, we compare the case group's and control group's exposure frequencies to the risk factor.
Results: Both experimental and control groups included 42% under-21 individuals. Men outnumbered women in this survey. Most participants had finished elementary school, with 30 (61% of the total) and 27 (54% of the total) in the control group. Thirteen control group participants and twenty-one case group participants had blood type O, showing that this was the most common blood type. With 13 and 15 B-type responders, the case group had 13% and the control group 30% blood type B. Nineteen percent of case study participants had AB blood type, compared to eleven percent in the control group. Seven case participants (14% of the total) had A blood type, whereas fourteen control participants (28% of the total) did. Comparison to DHF showed no significant variation in percentage between blood types O and A (p=0.142).
Conclusion: Dengue illness is quite prevalent in India. The majority of cases exhibit no symptoms or rather minor symptoms, while severe cases have a significant mortality rate. Therefore, it is essential to comprehend studies that aid in anticipating the progression to a more severe state. There was no discernible link between blood types and the occurrence of dengue hemorrhagic fever.
