Hemoglobinopathies comprise a very large number of genetic biochemical/ physiological entities, most of which are academic curiosities whose major effect on medicine is to add to the surfeit of useless scientific information. However, several of these conditions (e.g., sickle cell anemia, hemoglobin SC disease, and some thalassemias) are common major life-threatening diseases. In the present special issue of Thalassemia andHaemoglobinopatheies, some topics are being discussed by experts in different subjects of the field. It is hoped that it will open up new fields of research in human genetics.
