The aim of this study was to determine the frequency of alpha-globin gene mutations in three groups of Mexican unrelated individuals. The first two groups were normal and sickle cell trait individuals from the Costa Chica region, a place with a 12.8% frequency of HbS carriers, and the third group comprised of Mexican mestizo patients with beta-thalassemia.(More)

Alpha-Thalassemia is one of the most prevalent hemoglobin disorders in the world, in South-East Asians, the --SEA allele is widely found in the HbH disease patients. The purpose of this work is to describe the molecular characteristics of Hemoglobin H disease in three patients from two Mexican families, as well to analyze the DNA sequence of the --SEA(More)
