Thalassemia is the name of a group of inherited genetic blood disorder, characterized by absent or decreased synthesis of normal hemoglobin, which is a component of red blood cells and it consists of two different proteins: alfa and beta. The two main types of Thalassemia are called “Alpha” and “Beta” depending on which part of hemoglobin in the red blood cell is lacking.
