El extenso estudio realizado en Espana de la [alfa] talasemia (8-10), pone de manifiesto la relativa frecuencia de esta patologia en este pais, fundamentalmente de la determinante [[alfa].sup.+] talasemia por la perdida de 3.7 kilobase (kb) de ADN conocida con el nombre de [[alfa].sup.+] talasemia rightward, que se origina por la desalineacion y recombinacion reciproca de homologos entre los cromosomas, lo cual afecta ambos genes [alfa] en cis y se forma un gen hibrido ([[alfa].sub.2] [[alfa].sub.1]), dejando un solo gen [alfa] funcional en un cromosoma (-[[alfa].sup.3.7]/[alfa][alfa]).
