Infectious disease, Klebsiella pneumoniae


Description:Blood group B is associated with a higher overall risk of bacterial infections, especially Klebsiella, while blood group AB has been shown to encounter greater virulence when infected with Klebsiella. Since infection with this strain is associated with diabetes and alcoholism, blood group A and non-secretors should be cautious as well.
