Medical question - PGM

Recommended Posts

Spenser novel. From semen left at the crime, "he's blood type C and secretes PGM".

 

Now as far as I know, there is no blood type C. There is A, B, AB and O. Apparently Mr. Parker made up blood type C. He may therefore have invented PGM.

 

But on the off-chance this is actually a medical thing that is found in semen, what is it?

 

 

Efit: Sorry. Not PGM. PGM I (pee gee em space eye) (I dislike sans-serif fonts)

No C.  There are people who have totally unique blood types. I know a woman who donates blood every 6 (8) weeks in case she needs it herself and there were 5 others on the planet known to have the same type, not even her own children.

 

redcross asked her if they could send her blood to Europe as there was a pair of twins about to be born with her type.

And that gives another example of why I dislike sans-serif fonts.

 

Apparently it is not pee gee em space eye, it is pee gee em space one.
