|Title:||Hematological Phenotype And The Type Of β Thalassemia Mutation In Brazil|
|Abstract:||The type of β thalassemia mutation found in heterozygous individuals is believed to influence hematological symptoms. Our data demonstrated that patients with the mild mutation (β IVSI-nt 6) have a higher mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH) than those with the severe forms (β(o)39 or β IVSI-nt 1), and the hemoglobin A2 levels were lower in β(o) mutations than in the β IVSI-nt 6 mutation. However, in contrast to previous studies, we were not able to indicate MCH as a clear discriminator between the β(o) and β+ mutations.|
