Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency is one of the most common inherited enzymopathies in endemic areas of malaria including Southeast Asia. The molecular features of G6PD deficiency are similar among Southeast Asian population, with differences in the type of the prominent variants in each region. This study determined the prevalence and(More)
Alpha-thalassemia-1 Southeast Asian (SEA) type is the most common genetic disorder in the Asian population. Couples who are both carriers have a 25% chance of conceiving Bart's hydrops fetalis. Therefore, results from carrier screening and prenatal diagnosis frequently need to be available rapidly. A rapid technique for diagnosis of alpha-thalassemia-1 SEA(More)
Without gel electrophoresis and specific probes, the two tubes real-time SYBR-polymerase chain reaction (SYBR-PCR) was setup by using different primer sets: P1/P2 for the detection of wild type alpha-globin gene alleles and P1/P3 for detection of the allele bearing the Southeast Asian (SEA) type (--SEA) deletion. Analyses of the cycle threshold (CT) values(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the effect of haematological alterations resulting from antiretroviral therapy (ART) on the diagnosis of thalassaemia carriers in HIV-1-infected Thai patients. METHODS Complete blood cell counts, osmotic fragility (OF) test and haemoglobin (Hb)-A(2) values were measured in blood samples of 52 antiretroviral-treated and 14 untreated(More)
High-resolution melting (HRM) analysis is a rapid mutation analysis which assesses the pattern of reduction of fluorescence signal after subjecting the amplified PCR product with saturated fluorescence dye to an increasing temperature. We used HRM analysis for prenatal diagnosis of beta-thalassemia disease in northern Thailand. Five PCR-HRM protocols were(More)
