The synthesis of Hb F was studied in the BFUe-derived colonies of 20 SS patients after incubation with 35S methionine for 24 hours, 13 days after the start of the experiments. Similar analyses were made for isolated reticulocytes from 28 SS patients; these cells were incubated for 2 hours and occasionally for 24 hours. The G gamma and A gamma percentages(More)
This study examines the effect of different levels of fetal hemoglobin (Hb F) and the presence or absence of genes for alpha-thalassemia on the red cell indices and degree of anemia among 102 patients with homozygous sickle cell disease (S/S) between the ages of 15 and 62 years.
