Beta-thalassemia/hemoglobin (Hb) E is a hereditary hemolytic anemia with varying degrees of severity. Severely affected patients are treated with blood transfusion and/or splenectomy in order to maintain an optimum level of hemoglobin for normal growth and physical activities. As thrombosis has been observed among splenectomized patients, we have(More)
OBJECTIVE Hepcidin is a key regulator of body iron homeostasis. The inflammatory cytokine interleukin (IL)-6 has been reported to upregulate expression of the hepcidin (HAMP) gene in monocytes. The purpose of this work was to determine HAMP expression at steady state in monocytes of splenectomized and non-splenectomized patients with HbE-β-thalassemia(More)
Introduction. In iron overload status, excess iron deposits in reticuloendothelial cells and tissues and can be detected using Prussian blue staining. The aim of this paper was to investigate the relationship between siderocyte numbers and plasma ferritin levels (a practically standard marker of iron overload) in the blood of the splenectomized and(More)
OBJECTIVES A previous report revealed that thalassaemic patients with transfusional iron overload developed oxidative stress. The aims of this study were to investigate the FXN mRNA levels in the reticulocytes of patients with HbE-beta-thalassaemia who were treated with regular transfusions, to compare the results with those from normal controls and to(More)
