Author information: Abstract A study, which was intended to find out the main causes of defective vision among Kuwaiti students, yielded the following results: The percentage of defective vision among 139,769 Kuwaiti students is 0.099%. Hereditary and genetic causes are responsible for 75.5% of the cases. Recessive inheritance account for 36.2% Autosomal dominant account for […]

Author information: Abstract This study concerned the gamma chain composition of Hb F and the haplotypes of 44 patients with beta-thalassemia major or intermedia and many of their relatives. Seventeen patients came from Northern (Turkish) Cyprus, 12 from the Istanbul area, and 15 from Macedonia and Bulgaria. Analysis of the A gamma T-G gamma-A gamma […]

Author information: Abstract A feasibility study in two Mediterranean populations showed that prenatal diagnosis of beta-thalassaemia with a limited number of synthetic oligonucleotide probes would have been possible in about 70% of cases. To provide a comprehensive programme of prenatal diagnosis for the thalassaemias it would be necessary, in most populations, to combine fetal DNA […]

Author information: Abstract A form of alpha zero-thalassemia found in subjects of Mediterranean origin has been analyzed by gene mapping and DNA sequencing. Homozygotes have the hemoglobin Bart’s hydrops fetalis syndrome, while compound heterozygotes for this defect and alpha+-thalassemia have hemoglobin H disease. It results from a deletion that removes 20.5 kilobases of DNA from […]

Author information: Abstract The prevalence of a new polymorphism for the restriction enzyme Ava II in the psi beta-gene of the beta-globin gene cluster was determined in Mediterranean families with at least one beta-thalassaemia homozygote. The polymorphic site was absent in 54/115 beta-thalassaemic chromosomes but only in 4/120 normal chromosomes. The difference in frequencies of […]

Author information: Abstract The feasibility of using restriction fragment length polymorphisms ( RFLPs ) for the antenatal diagnosis of beta thalassaemia in the U.K.-resident Cypriot and Asian Indian populations has been determined. Seven polymorphic restriction endonuclease sites in the beta globin gene cluster were analysed in 20 Cypriot and 42 Asian patients and their parents […]

Author information: Abstract A new polymorphic BgI II restriction endonuclease site in the alpha-globin gene complex has been found in Cypriot, Sardinian, and Greek populations. In all cases, this polymorphism is linked to a particular hypervariable region between the zeta 2 and zeta 1 genes. This suggests that these hypervariable regions are stable and will […]

Author information: Abstract The genetic factors responsible for the relatively mild clinical phenotypes of some cases of homozygous beta zero thalassaemia (thalassaemia intermedia) in Sardinia have been evaluated. The frequency of deletion forms of alpha thalassaemia was higher in patients with thalassaemia intermedia (6/8) than in those with thalassaemia major (6/17). The beta globin gene […]
