|Title:||Clinical and pathological status of haemoglobinopathies among pregnant women in southern Orissa|
Bisht, Satpal Singh
|Abstract:||Sixty-two pregnant women were categorized into four age groups and investigated to know the prevalence of haemoglobinopathies among them in and around Berhampur using sickling test, naked eye single tube red cell osmotic fragility test (NESTROFT), and haemoglobin electrophoresis. Out of the 62 pregnant women four cases of sickle cell trait and one of <img src='/image/spc_char/beta.gif'>-thalassaemia trait was found. There was no significant difference recorded in the blood cell indices between normal and sickle cell trait in pregnant women. Sickle cell haemoglobinopathy is prevalent among the general, scheduled caste followed by other backward class groups of southern Orissa and less HbS% was observed among the pregnant women which indicate the probable interaction of sickle hemoglobin with <img src='/image/spc_char/alpha.gif'>- thalassemia|
