In The Thalassemia Syndromes. Authors and Contributors.

There are many different forms of thalassaemia, all resulting from mutations of the genes which are responsible for regulating the structure and synthesis of haemoglobin. These diseases are all transmitted in a Mendelian fashion; parents, who are symptomless carriers, each pass on a defective gene to a severely affected offspring. In The Thalassemia Syndromes.

The thalassaemia syndromes. by. Weatherall, D. J; Clegg, J. Publication date.

In many countries they constitute a major public health problem and are a severe drain on medical resources. Thalassaemias were among the first diseases to be studied at the molecular level and much is now known about the genetic basis for their remarkable clinical variability. Hence their study has provided a model for understanding the clinical diversity of monogenic diseases in general.

The Thalassaemia Syndromes book.

In the new edition of this successful and authoritative book, the thalassaemias are reviewed in detail with respect to their clinical features, cellular pathology, molecular genetics, prevention and treatment. It is aimed at specialists in haematology in the laboratory or clinical setting, particularly in areas where thalassaemia is common either in the native population or in immigrant communities.

The fourth edition has been both updated and re-organized. Three new chapters have been added on the link between alpha-thalassaemia and mental retardation, on avoidance and population control and on global epidemiology. Considerable emphasis is placed on molecular pathology reflecting the huge burst of information to have come out of this field in the last few years.

I originally ordered this book to understand the various types of thalassemia. My daughter had been at that time, diagnosed with alpha thalassemia. Thankfully, that turned out not to be true. However, in the meantime after reading this book, I gained a thorough understanding of thalassemia and the diagnosis procedure. Being unfamiliar with many medical and scientific terms, it definitively made the reading slower for me. The book is long, and it's fascinating. It covers the history of discovery of the thalassemia syndromes, the type of lab work that is used in the diagnosis procedures. (I.e., CBC's, blood smears, hemoglobin electrophoresis, DNA analysis, etc.) The authors go into great detail about how the lab work is completed for those tests. Additionally, the authors provide great research sources to illustrate the genetic patterns of thalassemia and the way the blood disorder will affect the body.

This is not a light read, and it's very focused on only thalassemia disorders. It's not about other blood diseases. This book is not for someone who isn't looking for a deep and encompassing understanding of thalassemia. Also, the reason I gave it only four stars is because the book was written in the early 1980's, so some of the book is moot. Surprisingly, most of the book is still relevant and it does provide a rich history of thalassemia.
