Logo_CSHG_ENThe Cyprus Society of Human Genetics (CSHG) was founded on 3rd February 2004 with the main aim of promoting and developing the science of human genetics in Cyprus.

Human genetics is the science of human diversity. Its research scope includes the explanation of genetic phenomena and mechanisms that occur in humans at the molecular or cellular level. Understanding these mechanisms will promote better diagnosis, treatment and prevention of human genetic diseases.The CSHG wants to be a catalyst for this process in Cyprus, bringing national and international biomedical professionals together, organising the professional framework of geneticists in Cyprus and facilitating education, research and harmonisation and improvement in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of inherited disorders. The details of the society’s scope and aims are detailed in its Statute.

Author information: Abstract Five Cypriots homozygous for beta +-thalassaemia have inherited deletion or non-deletion forms of alpha-thalassaemia that seem to have modified the usually severe clinical picture to that of mild thalassaemia intermedia. These observations have important implications for the antenatal diagnosis of beta-thalassaemia.
