Aims: To study the parameters of iron metabolism in beta-thalassemia minor. Material and methods: Fifty-eight subjects (30 males and 28 females) from 18 to 72 years diagnosed as having beta-thalassemia minor were studied. Thirty males and 28 females with the same age range were studied as controls. The hematological study was carried out using a Coulter Counter. The biochemical study was done with Hitachi. Hemoglobin A2 was analyzed through cellogel electrophoresis. Iron was measured with 1,10-phenanthroline (ß), transferrin through nephelometry, and ferritin through immunoassay. Results: Mean corpuscular volume and mean corpuscular hemoglobin in males and femal...
