Blood transfusions from one person to another, which were attempted increasingly after the turn of the 19th century, often led to inexplicable fatal intolerance reactions. In the year 1901, Karl Landsteiner (1868-1943) uncovered in Vienna the cause by his brilliant discovery of the human O-A-B system, for which he was not awarded the Nobel prize until 1930. The present paper examines the immense importance of this Austrian scientist of Jewish descent, especially in the field of basic immunological research, who worked at the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research in New York from 1922 until his death.
