Abstract

Foetal haemoglobin plays a dominant role in ameliorating morbidity and mortality of sickle cell disease. Individual’s variation in foetal haemoglobin (HbF) expression is a known and potentially heritable modifier of sickle cell disease severity. We evaluated the distribution pattern of foetal haemoglobin in SCD (n=146), 75 were homozygous SS as test… (More)
