Written by some of the world’s leading authorities on haemoglobin disorders, this second revised edition of Guidelines for the Clinical Management of Thalassaemia provides medical professionals with a clear, comprehensive guide to the optimal treatment of thalassaemia, based on scientific evidence, clinical studies and observations. The information provided here has been meticulously compiled by experts fully aware of the many different circumstances in which medical personnel strive to treat patients with thalassaemia. As such, it sets out to provide a full guide to the treatment to which every patient everywhere is entitled, including access to sufficient quantities of safe blood and iron chelation therapy, as well as offering a comprehensive assessment of groundbreaking advances in chelation therapy, other treatment options and the long-awaited final cure, including stem cell transplantation and gene therapy.

Dedication

The authors dedicate this book to George, Ahmad, Giovanna, Nicos, Meigui, Sumitra, Christine, Minh-Quan, Hamid, Pranee, Eduard, Karim, and all other patients with thalassaemia, who are not with us any more but whose will and determination to live have inspired researchers and health professionals across the world to promote scientific knowledge and quality care.

It is our fervent hope that this book will serve not only as a manual for promoting clinical management, but also as a tool for improving communication and collaboration amongst all of those, patients, parents, health professionals and others who are striving towards the same goal, the establishment of effective control of thalassaemia and the promotion of equal access to quality health care for every patient with Thalassaemia.
