Pharmacological agents such as hydroxyurea (HU) have been known to cause induction of fetal hemoglobin and possibly may alleviate the symptoms in thalassemia intermedia patients. Thirty-sevenExpand
Spectrum of haemoglobinopathies diagnosed by cation exchange-HPLC & modulating effects of nutritional deficiency anaemias from north India
Background & objectives: The usefulness of cation exchange high performance liquid chromatography (CE-HPLC) as a tool for detection of thalassaemia/haemoglobin variants was evaluated in a prospectiveExpand
SCA12 is a rare locus for autosomal dominant cerebellar ataxia: A study of an Indian family
Spinocerebellar ataxia 12 (SCA12) is an autosomal dominant cerebellar ataxia (ADCA) described in a single family with a CAG repeat expansion in the PPP2R2B gene. We screened 247 index cases,Expand
Inherited platelet function disorders versus other inherited bleeding disorders: an Indian overview.
Inherited deficiencies of plasma proteins involved in blood coagulation generally lead to lifelong bleeding disorders, whose severity is directly proportional to the degree of factor deficiency.Expand
Regional distribution of beta-thalassemia mutations in India.
We have characterized the mutations in 1050 carriers of the beta-thalassemia gene and analyzed their regional distribution in India. The majority of beta-thalassemia carriers were migrants fromExpand
