We describe the hematological and DNA characterization of Hb D-Punjab [beta121(GH4)Glu-->Gln] in Thailand. Nine patients from five unrelated families were studied; four patients were simple carriers of Hb D-Punjab, two were compound heterozygotes for Hb D-Punjab/beta+-thalassemia; another two patients were double heterozygotes for Hb D-Punjab and alpha-thalassemia-2, and one patient was a compound heterozygote for Hb D-Punjab and Hb E [beta26(B8)Glu-->Lys]. Typical thalassemic indices with… CONTINUE READING
