NEW  CP100  Practical Integration of Clinical, Electrophoretic, and Molecular Features of Hemoglobin Disorders

Sunday, October 13
9:30–11:30 AM

Medical Knowledge Practice-Based Learning and Improvement

Hemoglobin disorders are common and can be associated with a wide variety of clinical phenotypes and severity. These disorders are an excellent model to understand the molecular mechanisms of diseases. Because of the simplified nature of the human red blood cell, it is very easy to see how an alteration in the globin DNA can affect the resultant protein and its effect on the function of the red blood cell. There are many different methodologies to evaluate these disorders. This session is a case-based discussion of clinically significant hemoglobin and thalassemia disorders, integrating clinical and laboratory data into the presentation. A major emphasis will focus on the practical and appropriate use of ancillary studies, particularly molecular studies.
