WHAT IS KENT BRANTLY'S BLOOD TYPE?????
Dr. Kent Brantly has already donated his plasma to multiple people to aid in fighting the Ebola virus. He says he offered to do a donation for Thomas Eric Duncan, but that their blood types did not match. That leads me to wonder what his blood type is? It seems the only way to survive thus far is to get the donation from a survivor and he is the only one they are using. So if your blood is not compatible with his, your S.O.L.

He might be an AB and he can donate to anyone. Strike that, might not be since he couldn't donate to Duncan.

When you find a piece of shit along side the road and you poke it with a stick, what do you expect to find inside of it, gold?
No, it's just going to stink more.

I think he must be 0- I am rusty but he must be one of the universal types which is why they keep using his. Maybe he is a match with all but one or two other types. Or maybe he felt he didn't deserve it for knowingly bringing it here but I doubt that is the case

No need to match blood type.

Plasma is serum without platelets..

They aren't telling us why he didn't get it.
He may have had another issue and they didn't waste it on him? Afterall, how often can Dr. Brantley get bled to save the Ebola world?

Re: WHAT IS KENT BRANTLY'S BLOOD TYPE?????
I was wondering the same thing because after reading he has somehow matched every victim (other than Duncan) I was wondering if that particular blood type was more susceptible to getting Ebola.

Blood typing is very interesting. Your blood type referes to the specific presence of absence of an antigenic. There are two kinds ABO and RhD. ABO contitbutes to weither or not you have type A,B, AB, or O. the Possitive or negative refers to the presnce of RhD.
You can give to a person who has any of the antigens even if you don't have it, but you can't recieve from a person who has an antagen you don't. Type O- has does not have any antigens that is why they are a universal donor.
While I don't know Dr. Brantly's blood type I would guess that he has at least one of the Antigens Duncan does not have. He could therefore not recieve Brantly's blood.
Given what we know about how common certain blood types are it is likly that Brantly is either O+ or possibly even A+. This would allow him to give to most people but not everyone. Duncan most likely lacked either the RhB antigen or if Brantly is A+ Duncan could have lacked the A antigen. It is also possible that Brantly is something like B+ or AB+, but the B antigen is less common among westerners. He could also be A- and be able to donate to a lot of people. It all comes down to the fact that Dr. Brantly had some antigen that Duncan did not. No Tricks, no coverups, just plain biology. We also know that Brantly did want to give his blood to Duncan, but was unable.
