THALASSEMIA AND HAEMOGLOBINOPATHIES

The discovery of Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) and its involvement in graft rejection, immune response and the genetic basis of disease associations lead to the birth of this new field of science called Immunogenetics. This field is important not only in basic biomedical research but also in clinical medicine. The growth of this field was further substantiated by the various International Histocompatibility Workshops. Solutions to idiopathic syndromes and autoimmune diseases come from the field of Immunology,Immunogenetics and Molecular biology. This field of HLA system has been evolving very fast and therefore an attempt has been made to provide a Special Issue HLA system.
