[Rare hemoglobins in Guadeloupe and in the Lesser Antilles (author's transl)].


Screening of abnormal hemoglobins on 25 136 samples allowed us to detect from 1974-1979 rare or uncommon hemoglobins as N Baltimore, Korle Bu, Lepore, K Woolwich, J Broussais and J Baltimore. Hemoglobins N Baltimore, J Broussais, and J Baltimore are detected for the first time in Guadedoupe. The identification of these asymptomatic hemoglobins in this part of the Carribbean region provides information concerning the exact origin of the black population of these islands; e.g., hemoglobin K Woolwich and N Baltimore are found only in specific regions of West Africa.
