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.
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.
