The present study compiles the results of our own research and of a prior study on beta-thalassemia (thal) in Morocco, comprising a total of 187 beta-thalassemic chromosomes. Six major mutations: (beta0) codon 39 (C --> T), (beta+) IVS-I-6 (T --> C), (beta0) frameshift codon (FSC) 6 (-A), (beta0) FSC 8 (-AA), (beta0) IVS-I-1 (G --> A) and (beta+) -29 (A -->(More)
A comprehensive hematological and molecular analysis of 57 beta thalassemic heterozygotes, 28 homozygotes, 18 double heterozygotes, 3 compound heterozygotes beta thal/beta S and one compound heterozygote beta thal/Hb Newcastle, in 46 Moroccan families with at least one beta thalassemia patient is reported. Six major mutations: beta(0)39 (C-->T),(More)
