Philadelphia: Saunders, (OCoLC)   Hemoglobinopathies are the most common single gene disorders worldwide with a considerable frequency in certain area particularly Mediterranean and Middle Eastern countries. Hemoglobinopathies include structural variants of hemoglobin (Hb S, Hb C, HbE,) and thalassaemias which are inherited defects in the globin chains synthesis.

The hemoglobinopathies are a diverse group of inherited recessive disorders consisting of the structural hemoglobin variants and the thalassemias. They can occur at very high carrier frequencies in the malarious regions of the world and are regionally specific, with each population having a unique combination of structural variants and. 4 ASSOCIATION OF PUBLIC HEALTH LABORATORIES Hemoglobinopathies: Current Practices for Screening, Confirmation and Follow-up 5 III. Introduction to Hemoglobinopathies Hemoglobin is a tetramer composed of two α-globin and two non- α -globin chains working in conjunction with heme to transport oxygen in the blood.2,3 Normal adult hemoglobin (HbA) is. – Many hemoglobinopathies can be diagnosed using electrophoretic or high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) techniques, but some may be missed – Genetic testing. Importance of CBC • Thalassemias – Red cell indices are critical to diagnosis – Hypochromic microcytic anemia. Hemoglobinopathies (Hemoglobin Disorders) Hemoglobin is produced by genes that control the expression of the hemoglobin s in these genes can produce abnormal hemoglobins and anemia, which are conditions termed "hemoglobinopathies".

The book deals with both laboratory and genetic diagnostic protocols on a wide range of subjects in the area of immunohematology ranging from hemoglobinopathies, hemostasis and thrombosis, cytogenetics, transfusion medicine and transfusion transmitted disorders, autoimmune disorders, and primary unique feature of the book. Hemoglobinopathy is the medical term for a group of blood disorders and diseases that affect red blood cells.. It can be a kind of genetic defect that results in abnormal structure of one of the globin chains of the hemoglobin molecule. Hemoglobinopathies are inherited single-gene disorders; in most cases, they are inherited as autosomal co-dominant traits.
