National Radio Discussion on Thalassaemia with the Minister of Health. A one hour discussion on Thalassaemia and its permanent cure by the emerging Bone Marrow Transplant Centre at the Teaching Hospital Kandy, Sri Lanka, was held and broadcasted island wide by the Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation on 19 August , with the participation of the Minister of Health, Dr. Rajitha Senaratne. Teaching Hospital Kurunegala || Sri Lanka. Since the establishment of National Thalassaemia Center of Teaching Hospital Kurunegala in the year wh ich caters large no of thalassaemia patient in the country. More than patient already registered in the revealed that most of the patient are from Kurunegala district while others are from Puttlam district.

Inherited haemoglobin disorders, including thalassaemia and sickle-cell disease, are the most common monogenic diseases worldwide. Several clinical forms of α-thalassaemia and β-thalassaemia, including the co-inheritance of β-thalassaemia with haemoglobin E resulting in haemoglobin E/β-thalassaemia, have been described. The disease hallmarks include imbalance in the α/β-globin chain.   Thalassemia is an inherited blood disorder that reduces the production of functional hemoglobin (the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen). This causes a shortage of red blood cells and low levels of oxygen in the bloodstream, leading to a variety of health problems. There are two main types of thalassemia, alpha thalassemia and beta thalassemia.

Old JM, Khan SN, Verma I, et al. A multi-center study in order to further define the molecular basis of beta-thalassemia in Thailand, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Mauritius, Syria, and India, and to develop a simple molecular diagnostic strategy by amplification refractory mutation system-polymerase chain reaction. Hemoglobin. ;25(4)– Objective. To determine the molecular characterization and disease-associated complications of beta-thalassemia intermedia (β -TI) patients in Sulaymaniyah province, northeastern Iraq. Methods. A total of β -TI patients from families were enrolled. Detection of β -thalassemia mutations was done by reverse hybridization technique and direct gene sequencing.

The β‐globin gene mutations and the α‐globin genes of patients with the phenotype of severe to moderate thalassaemia from seven centres in Sri Lanka were analysed. Twenty‐four β‐globin gene mutations were identified, three accounting for 845% of the alleles studied: IVSI‐5 (G→C) 562%; IVSI‐1 (G→A) 152%; and Cited by: In previous studies we reported the approximate gene frequency and a preliminary assessment of the molecular pathology for the α and β thalassaemias in Sri Lanka and found that transfusion‐dependent β thalassaemia major and HbE/β thalassaemia are the main clinically important forms of the disease (de Silva et al, ; Old et al, ).Cited by: The mutation is the commonest alpha thalassaemia mutation in Sri Lanka 1,2 as well as worldwide 1 and it occurs due to unequal cross-over between homologous sequences of.

The molecular basis of thalassaemia in Sri Lanka Abstract With the present popUlation estimate at million, it is predicted that approximately patients with l3-thalassaemia major and with HbE/I3-thalassaemia should consume >5% of the current health budget for treatment of these : Christopher A.

Fisher. Thalassaemia is the most commonly inherited disorder in Sri Lanka. Statistically, there are roughly about 60 new patients with Thalassaemia major also known as Transfusion Dependent Thalassaemia. Haemoglobin E β thalassaemia is the commonest form of severe thalassaemia in many Asian countries.1, 2 To assess its natural history, the reasons for its clinical diversity, and how it should be managed, we studied patients at the Thalassaemia Centre, Kurunegala General Hospital, Sri Lanka, between and ; 31 patients aged 13 years or younger who presented during the.

In Southeast Asia α-thalassaemia, β-thalassaemia, haemoglobin (Hb) E and Hb Constant Spring (CS) are prevalent. The abnormal genes in different combinations lead to over 60 different thalassaemia syndromes, making Southeast Asia the locality with the most complex thalassaemia genotypes.

The haemoglobinopathies remain a valuable tool for the study of gene action in Man but in the last few years the emphasis in this field has changed from population genetics to the study of abnormal haemoglobin synthesis at a molecular level.

This trend is particularly noticeable in recent work on thalassaemia. The molecular basis of the thalassaemias in Sri Lanka. and the alpha-globin genes of patients with the phenotype of severe to moderate thalassaemia from seven centres in Sri Lanka were.

As well as the previously identified deletion forms of α + thalassaemia, − α and − α, two deletional forms of α 0 thalassaemia, one of which has not been described previously, were encountered. The pedigrees of families with the novel form of α 0 thalassaemia, all of whom were from the Muslim population, are shown in Fig.

1 and the associated haematological findings in Table 1. Beta (β) thalassaemia is heterogeneous, both in terms of its genetic basis and clinical phenotype. Individuals who inherit a single mutated β globin allele are classified as “Thalassaemia Trait”.

During a study of the molecular basis for severe forms of beta thalassemia in Sri Lanka, 2 patients were found to be heterozygous for beta thalassemia mutations. Further analysis revealed that one of them has a previously unreported molecular basis for severe thalassemia intermedia, homozygosity for.

To date, efforts to create a regional profile of β-thalassaemia mutations have largely concentrated on the populations of India.

Hemoglobin. ; – doi: /HEMThalassemia is a disorder of hemoglobin characterized by reduced or absent production of one of the globin chains in human red blood cells with relative excess of the other. Impaired synthesis of β-globin results in β-thalassemia, whereas defective synthesis of α-globin leads to α-thalassemia.This article outlines the molecular mechanisms underlying the quantitative reduction in β-globin production.

Mutations that completely inactivate the β gene resulting in no β-globin production cause β mutations allow the production of some β globin, and depending on the degree of quantitative reduction in the output of the β chains, are classified as β + - or β.
