Study Population

The type of severe β-Thalassemia:Hb <60g/L, microcytic hypochromic anemia; more than 10% target erythrocyte and erythrocyte fragments; increased number of reticulocyte; more erythroblast in peripheral blood; extremely proliferative in marrow; HbF>30%~90%.

The type of intermedia β-Thalassemia:Hb 60g/L~100g/L; the shape of mature erythrocyte is similar to severe type; more reticulocyte; erythroblast may be found; HbF>3.5%.

The type of intermedia α-Thalassemia: The patients have mild or moderate anemia (Hemoglobin in a few patients is less than 60g/L or more than 100g/L),probably have hepatosplenomegaly, jaundice, and Mediterranean anemia features.
