DETECTION OF β-THALASSAEMIA TRAIT: ASTI DY OF FIFTY FEMALES
AbstractBackground: his study was carried out to detect beta-thalassaemia frail in the siblings of beta thalassaemia majorchildren by Hemoglobin (Hb) electrophoresis Methods: Subjects were divided into two groups Group I Mas thepatterns group comprising 100-subjects siblings of beta- thalassaemia major children and Group 2 was the controlgroup with 25-subjects Results: It was observed that 58% of the siblings of beta-thalassaemia major children had betathalassaemia trail Even in the control group 2 subjects had beta thalassaemia trait which shows that thalassaemia geneis very common in Hazara division of Pakistan.
