Diagnostic Techniques in Genetics offers an overview of how DNA or RNA technology may be applied to a large set of genetic diagnoses. The first part of the book focuses on DNA/RNA applications and includes many of the latest developments in the field combined with routine procedures of genetic diagnoses, for example cloning and sequencing DNA. The DNA applications presented in the first chapter are then each applied to a specific kind of genetic diagnosis and the text concludes with a chapter devoted to population genetics.

This illustrated diagnostic manual of paediatric blood disease concentrates on the laboratory manifestations of disease (ie, unusual cells in blood films), rather than on clinical features. The book offers a collection of pictures of both common and rare conditions.

"...a most interesting, eye-opening and often challenging book...it should be read by anyone involved in dealing with haemoglobinopathies, in the health or social care setting. Many others who are interested in the broader issues around chronic and particularly genetic disease will also find it stimulating reading." - Dr Anne Yardumian, Consultant Haematologist, North Middlesex Hospital, London "Overall this book acts as an invaluable introduction, acting as a template for considering chronic and genetic disease, and with its comprehensive bibliography should be a natural springboard for any practitioner wanting to develop their knowledge in this subject area." - Journal of Biosocial Science Sickle cell disorders and thalassaemia are inherited blood disorders. Sickle cell disorder alters the shape of the red blood cells from their usual round appearance to something which resembles a sickle, or half moon. Those born with thalassaemia major are unable to make a sufficient amount of haemoglobin. They will develop a fatal anaemia in early childhood if not treated with blood transfusion every four to six weeks, for life. Sickle cell disorders and thalassaemia are found mainly in families that come from Africa, South Asia, the Caribbean, the Eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East. There are estimated to be over 10,000 people with a sickle cell disorder (SCD) and around 600 cases of thalassaemia in the UK. Despite this high incidence, it is still an under researched topic, and a subject about which health professionals and policy makers know very little. After years of neglect, it is now attracting policy interest and there are new moves to improve existing provision. This timely book examines the politics of sickle cell and thalassaemia and offers a detailed evaluation of the services available. It is unusual in placing patients and their families at the centre of the study, allowing their views to be heard, and relating them to the delivery and organization of services. The problems that emerge range from inadequate language support, inappropriate generalizations, poor quality care, as well as institutional and individual racism. The book also identifies models of good practice and suggests ways in which we can learn from these. General policy and practice issues are highlighted throughout, and the need for a more systematic approach to planning and providing culturally sensitive services is addressed.

This book considers screening policies for sickle cell and thalassemia. It asks what types of ethnicity information are relevant for health professionals to ask as part of this screening and why. Through extensive use of interview material, the book draws upon the experiences of sickle cell and thalassemia counsellors who have been at the forefront of understanding in this area. The book: · Demonstrates how screening in a multi-ethnic society benefits from a better understanding of 'race', the meanings of concepts such as ethnicity and racialization, and the relation of race to cultural competency. · Shows how learning from best practice for screening could be a model for developing cultural competency across all types of health care provision. · Clarifies, through the use of the biologically-grounded exemplar of sickle cell and thalassemia, debates of 'race' and ethnicity for those working in social sciences. · Listens to the voices of experience and validates the hitherto unacknowledged achievements of professional women from minority ethnic groups. Extensive direct quotations from experienced sickle cell and thalassemia counsellors Explanations of key concepts, such as 'race', ethnicity and racism Explanation of the political, social and historical factors underlying tensions in asking an ethnicity questions Further resources and website information
