Alpha thalassaemia is a major genetic disorder that affects the production of aglobin chain of the haemoglobin commonly found in Southeast Asia. As a result of defective a-globin chain synthesis, individuals with this disorder show varying degree of anaemia due to ineffective erythropoiesis and haemolysis.
