[Osmotic resistance of erythrocytes as a screening method in detecting heterozygotes in beta-thalassemia].

Osmotic fragility of red blood cells in three different buffered solutions, i.e. 0,32%, 0,36% saline and 0,40% Tyrode solution was studied as a screening test for the detection of beta-thalassemia trait. 90 genetically designated beta-thalassemia heterozygotes were studied for the screening tests. In addition 514 school children and 161 patients suffering… CONTINUE READING
