In the structured interview, the parents were asked: (i) if they had informed their families (sibs, first and second cousins), friends, and co-workers that they were carriers of thalassaemia gene and, therefore, had a thalassaemic child; (ii) if there was increased risk of their family members being carriers and of having a thalassaemic child; (iii) if they had informed their relatives about the availability of antenatal diagnosis for carrier couples; and (iv) if parents had any reservation in our approaching their relatives directly to counsel them on increased risk of their being thalasseamia carriers and availability of carrier detection
This would allow for a CF carrier detection
rate of 85%-90%, Dr.
Thus far, identification of BTK has led to carrier detection
and prenatal counselling; additional characterization of a mouse model with great similarity to the human condition could advance our understanding of the fundamental processes underlying B-lymphocyte development and function.
is possible for conditions in which the genetic abnormality has been discovered.
