Thalassemias

Thalassemia is an inherited disorder that affects the production of normal hemoglobin (a type of protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen to the tissues in the body). Thalassemia includes a number of different forms of anemia. The severity and type of anemia depends upon the number of genes that are affected.

Listed in the directory left, you will find additional information regarding two different types of thalassemia, for which we have provided a brief overview.

If you cannot find the information in which you are interested, please visit the Hematology & Blood Disorders Online Resources page in this website for an Internet address that may contain additional information on that topic.
