Abstract:

Aim: This study aimed to study the relationship between hemodialysis patients and ABO blood grouping as well as screening for aerobic bacterial infection. Samples of urine and blood were collected from sixty patients who were submitted to Medical City and Al-kahdemiya hospitals in Baghdad in the period between December 2011 and February 2012. The specimens (urine and blood) were cultured on BHI broth and blood culture media (respectively) and bacterial cultures which were obtained were diagnosed to genus and species using biochemical tests and APi system. Eighty percent of urine samples were positive to culturing while (50%) from the blood samples were positive to culturing. The most isolated bacteria from urine were: Staphylococcus aureus (23%) and Escherichia coli (19.8%) while from blood were S. epidermidis (32.6%) and E. coli (32.6 %). The percentage of the seroprevelence of Helicobacter pylorl was 53% of the total number of HD patients and that 60% of these patients who carried H. pylori antibodies belonged to O blood group. The results also revealed that (55, 25, 10, 10%) of the HD patients were belonging to (O, B, A and AB) respectively.
