Abstract Paper

We all know that thalassemia disease is a genetically disorder disease. It is in herited from parent, who has thalassemia trait in their blood. If both ‘ gene’ of the parents are thalassemia than the baby shall born with thalassemia major, but fone ‘gene’ of the parent are thalasemia and other gene is healthy then child shall be suffered from thalassemia minor or trait, in third option if both gene of the parent are healthy than child shall be also healthy and free from thalassemia.

Thalassemia major is fatal, and need regular blood transfusion. Splenomegaly, hepatomegaly and iron overload is gross. In manor these are less. Thalassemia intermediate is also less fatal and a patient can need occasional blood transfusion. The mean hemoglobin should be maintained 8 %-10 %

Regular transfusion or bone marrow transplantation is the only answer. Till today. As because the iron overload in the blood or laemosiderosis extensive, so iron chelation therapy is also have some relation.

In Malaysia thalasemia is a common inherited disease. The gene frequency of thalassemia is estimated to be about 5 %.
For homeopathic medicine we can think of: Ars Alb., syhilpis., Calc C., Chelidonium, Silicea, Vanad., Rghus Tox., China Off..
