Abstract: The LH-specificity refers to weak (LH-negative) or strong (LH-positive) agglutination of erythrocytes obtained with the lectin from Erythrine lithosperma. The LH status of patients with diabetes mellitus has been estimated by this anti- LH lectin. Blood samples from confirmed cases of diabetes mellitus (n=146) were typed both for the ABO blood groups and the LH specificity and compared with an appropriate control. The results indicate that as against normal individuals the Brahmin patients with this disease are significantly LH-negative (P < 0.05) and the implications of these results have been discussed.

Key words: LH specificity, ABO bloodgroups, Lectin, diabetes mellitus, Brahmin.
