α-and β-thalassemia are severe forms of anemia caused by specific mutations in the globin genes of the haemoglobin molecule. Globin StripAssays®, optimized for regional prevalences, identify the most relevant mutations.

Thalassemias

  • Thalassemias belong to the most frequent hereditary diseases posing a major public health problem.
  • They are especially frequent in Mediterranean countries, Africa, the Middle East, South-East Asia, and the Indian subcontinent.
  • Due to demographic changes during the last decades their incidence has increased worldwide.
  • Up-to-date, no ultimate cure apart from bone marrow transplantation is available.
  • Therefore, Health Authorities focus on screening programs.
