In 1954 a new Rh antigen, designated as V, was reported by DeNatale and others, who, after extensive studies, concluded that the antigen is common in Negroes and rare in white persons. "Of 150 West Africans, 40% had V, of New York Negroes 27% had V; of 407 London whites 0.5% had V, and of 444 New York whites 0.5% had V.
