Abstract

Prevalence of alpha gene triplication or deletion in β-thalassemia carriers was studied in 109 unrelated individuals in Rosario, Argentina. In different populations -α3.7 allele presents a higher prevalence than αααanti3.7; thus, α-thalassemia associated with β-thalassemia is more frequently observed. Nevertheless, this event was detected in only one case (0.9%), while the association with alpha triplication was present in two subjects (1.8%).
