In ATNC, XMN1 presence was causing a significant reduction in transfusion frequency (p-value 0.004) (Table 5).
The percentage of un-transfused patients in ATC group was significantly higher 38% compared to the ATNC group 18.7%.
However, among patients with [beta]+ thalassaemia, even a single [alpha] gene deletion is an important contributing factor in shifting the clinical spectrum of the disease.12 The commonest beta mutations found in our cohort was IVS1-5, both in homozygous and heterozygous forms and in both ATC and ATNC cohorts.
