Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We describe the use of a polymerase chain reaction-based method followed by a DNA enzyme immunoassay for the simultaneous detection of the eight most common β-thalassemia mutations in the Mediterranean population. The method is specific, sensitive, and easily applicable in routine clinical laboratories for the molecular diagnosis of β-thalassemia patients and at risk couples.
