Author information: Abstract Haemoglobin Bart’s was detected and quantitated in 42 babies during a survey of cord blood from neonates of Mediterranean origin. The distribution of Hb Bart’s levels for the group appeared to be bi-modal, with modes at 2.0% and 5.5%. Haematological data obtained from 21 babies during the first week of life showed […]

Author information: Abstract The frequency of alpha-thalassaemia in Cyprus was determined with studies of haemoglobin Bart’s in 1200 Greek Cypriot and 132 Turkish Cypriot newborn babies. Of the Greek newborns, 12.4%, and of the Turkish newborns, 6.8% had raised Hb Bart’s (from 0.6% to 12.9% of the total haemoglobin) suggesting that they were carriers of […]

Author information: Abstract Structural analysis documented the presence of haemoglobin LeporeWashington (=LeporeBoston) in a Greek Cypriot family and provided further evidence that, of the various types of Lepore mutants, only one is common in the Mediterranean area. Two individuals in this family were heterozygous for both Hb Lepore and beta thalassaemia, but they exhibited striking […]

Frequencies of the thalassaemias in Cyprus were examined by a survey of hospital inpatients and haematological investigations of adult and newborn population samples. The data indicate that 15% of the Greek and Turkish Cypriots are carriers of beta-thalassaemia genes, while 10% of the population carry alpha-thalassaemia genes. These are the highest frequencies of thalassaemia genes […]

Author information: Abstract The incidence of beta-thalassaemia trait among Cypriots in London is about 14%, and the birth rate of children with thalassaemia major is 0.6%. The high incidence of the beta-thalassaemia gene among Cypriots suggests the desirability of screening Cypriot school-leavers for thalassaemia trait and following up any incidentally discovered cases with family studies […]

Author information: Abstract We used restriction endonuclease analysis to determine the incidence of alpha-thalassemia in two Mediterranean islands. In a random population sample, the gene frequency of deletion-type alpha-thalassemia-2 (-alpha) was 0.18 in Sardinians and 0.07 in Greek Cypriots. All cases were the rightward crossover type. From these frequencies and the known incidence of hemoglobin-H […]

Author information: Abstract A case-finding survey yielded 58 persons with transfusion-dependent homozygous beta-thalassaemia who lived either in New South Wales or in the Australian Capital Territory. Of those born between 1961 and 1976 in New South Wales, nearly 70% were of Greek or Greek-Cypriot origin and 18% of Italian origin. The New South Wales incidence […]

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 […]
