Lecture on Hemoglobinopathies with Emphasis on Thalassemias


Hemoglobinopathies include synthesis of an abnormal hemoglobin (sickle cell anemia, unstable hemoglobins) or reduced rate of synthesis of normal α or β-globin chains (α or β thalassaemia).

Thalassaemias are a heterogeneous group of genetic disorders of hemoglobin synthesis, all of which result from reduced rate of production of one or more of the globin chains of haemoglobin. View the presentation below:
