We have analyzed the hemoglobin abnormalities in nearly 50 Albanian patients with a significant hemoglobinopathy and included 37 relatives in this study. Sickle cell anemia (SS) is a common disorder; all 15 sickle cell anemia patients had the complications expected for this disease. The beta S haplotype was type 19 (Benin); alpha-thalassemia-2 was rare.(More)
We have identified seven different beta-thalassemia mutations and one delta beta-thalassemia determinant (the Sicilian type) in 32 members of 17 Hungarian families. The most common mutation is the IVS-I-1 (G-->A) change; its high frequency is comparable to that observed in neighboring Czechoslovakia. Additional mutations are of Mediterranean origin. One(More)
Screening and analysis of immunotoxic and immunomodulatory activity has become an integral component in preclinical studies of pharmaceuticals and xenobiotics. In an attempt to replace laborious and expensive batteries of assays used at present we developed a multiple immunoassay (MIA) enabling the determination, in a single mouse, of: the weight of the(More)
Quantitative description of hepatic microvascular bed could contribute to understanding perfusion CT imaging. Micro-CT is a useful method for the visualization and quantification of capillary-passable vascular corrosion casts. Our aim was to develop and validate open-source software for the statistical description of the vascular networks in micro-CT scans.(More)
In four unrelated families of Czech and Slovak origin two nonsense dominant beta-thalassaemic alleles (CD 121 (G-T); CD 112 (T-A)) and in one family simple substitution in codon 115 (GCC-GAC) or alpha 2 beta 2 115 (G17) Ala-Asp HB-Hradec Králové were identified. Mutations in codons 112 and 115 were described for the first time. Phenotypic manifestation of(More)
