Homozygous Beta thalassaemia is a lifelong condition requiring regular blood transfusions from infancy.  The resulting iron overload damages the heart, liver and endocrines organs in particular, but can...
Unlike Hepatitis B, there is no vaccine available for protection against Hepatitis C virus (HCV).  Multi transfused patients eg patients with sickle cell disease and thalassaemia were at particular risk...
Patients with thalassemia major require regular blood transfusions from 6-12 months of age to stay alive. This eventually results in massive iron overload; the body has no mechanism for ridding itself...
Β-thalassemia is classified into three phenotypes, depending on the severity of symptoms: 1) thalassemia major (TM); 2) thalassemia Intermedia (TI); 3) β trait or thalassemia minor (Tm). Recent data...
Patients with homozygous beta thalassemia have complex clinical complications due to the need for blood transfusions and iron overload. Liver pathology due to the latter and a high prevalence of hepatitis...
