    Special Issue on Biochemical Aspects of

    Hemoglobin Abnormalities

    Hemoglobin Abnormalities, the most frequent genetic disease, affect approximately 7 percent of the world population. It is a kind of genetic defect that results in structure abnormalities or underproduction of globins in hemoglobin molecules. Some well-known hemoglobin variants such as sickle-cell anemia and congenital dyserythropoietic anemia may cause heart or digestive system diseases. Several biochemical methods are now available for detection and analysis of hemoglobin abnormalities. As one of the most serious diseases related to human health, hemoglobin abnormalities is of great attractions to researchers.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on exploring biochemical aspects of hemoglobin abnormalities. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:


    • Hemoglobinopathy
    • Sickle-cell anemia
    • Thalassaemia
    • Pathology of hemoglobin abnormalities
    • Clinical symptoms
    • Biochemical method for diagnose
    • Precaution and treatment
    • Limitation and problems linked to detection


    Authors should read over the journal’s Authors’ Guidelines carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue - Biochemical Aspects of Hemoglobin Abnormalities” should be chosen during your submission.


    According to the following timetable:
