Abstract

Introduction: The saliva was first analyzed for the presence of anti-A and anti-B hemagglutinins in 1928. However, it was not been utilized as evidence in criminal investigations because of insufficient techniques available at that time. Hence, the present study was designed to evaluate feasibility of ABO group in medicolegal cases by determining the efficacy and accuracy of ABO blood group determination from saliva.

Methodology: Total 100 random cases we were included in this study.The duration of study was over a period of one year.This study conducted in Department of Forensic medicine in Raipur Institute of Medical Sciences.

Result: In this study we were included total 100 cases. This study also found that total 21 female & 57 male are secretors and 11 male & 11 female were non secretors.this result revealed that 78% were secretors and 22% were non secretors.

Conclusion: This study may be useful in resolving the claims of parentage in estate or immigration or kidnapped children, disputed paternity and for identification of mass disasters.
