"For the blood is the life . . . . "(Deut. 12 :23) " . . . because the blood, in its value as life, makes atonement" (Lev. 17: 11) HemoPhilia is a rare disease, severe hemophilia rarer still, yet the written history of hemophilia extends back over a millennium and a half. In the ancient Middle East, blood and life were coupled. Blood was the primary substance necessary for life, given to God in sacrifice and forbidden as a food to mortals by Levitical law. Blood was essential for rites of purification and consecration. But the flow of blood during menstruation or parturition rendered a woman unclean. The circumcision of a male child required 33 days of "blood purification" by the mother. ' Circumcision, the visible reminder of the covenant of Abraham lijith Yahweh, was required of newborn Jewish males. It "connote(d) suitability for participation in what God is doing. "2 Hence, free and uncontrolled bleeding of the male child during circumcision, during the ratification of God's covenant, would be noted with awe and concern by those of the Jewish faith. It should not be surprising that the first genetic counseling offered to families with hemophilia is found in the Babylonian Talmud (compilation of Jewish law dated to about the third century AD) and concerns the necessity for circumcision in families with what we would now call hemophilia

Sickledex Test for S Hemoglobin: A Critique by Robert M Nalbandian( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

When the reagents, reactions, and principles of the Sickledex test are understood in terms of modern molecular biology, it is believed that the Sickledex test can be an invaluable and productive tool in the discovery not only of hemoglobin S but other hemoglobinopathies as well, provided: (1) certain pitfalls of false positive and false negative reactions are recognized; (2) urea is used to modify the test; and (3) all positive Sickledex specimens are subsequently studied by hemoglobin electrophoresis technique.

The Detection of Sickle Cell Disease in Large Human Populations by an Automated Technique by Robert M Nalbandian( Book )

2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A total of 2,939 specimens was tested in this mixed population of both military and civilian individuals. Complete agreement among the results of all tests was obtained. An automated test for the determination of S hemoglobin can be performed at the rate of 60 per hour per AutoAnalyzer unit on 0.5 ml of whole blood with accuracy and reliability on large human populations. The successful field trials we have conducted may be regarded as a prototype model for the survey of metropolitan and military populations leading to case-finding of sickle cell disease. These cases may then be directed to medical genetic counseling and for possible treatment with urea. This is the first large-scale human population survey by specific automated techniques diagnostic for the molecular lesion of S hemoglobin. The automated mass survey technique is proven and awaits immediate application to appropriate segments of our national population. This diagnostic technique appropriately fielded can yield substantial contributions to the development of accurate statistics and to the control and eventual elimination of this lethal genetic affliction, sickle cell disease. The impediment to the widespread use of this proven technique is the high cost per test due to the use of the proprietary Sickledex solution. (Author)

Dithionite Tube Test - A Rapid, Inexpensive Technique for the Detection of Hemoglobin S and Non-S Sickling Hemoglobin by Robert M Nalbandian( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An extensive field trial of the dithionite and the urea-dithionite tube tests indicates that the molecular theories of this method are supported by actual clinical tests. It is demonstrated that blood specimens appropriately collected at one site can be mailed at ambient temperatures for subsequent processing at a geographically remote laboratory without adverse effect on the accuracy or reliability of the test. The test, performed in 5 minutes, has a reagent cost of about 2 cents per determination. It is of considerable interest that these testing techniques will detect not only hemoglobins S and C (Harlem), a structural variant of S, but other non-S sickling hemoglobins such as Bart's, C (Georgetown), and perhaps Alexandra and rare hemoglobinopathies of low solubility such as Kings County and Stanleyville II. The dithionite and urea-dithionite tests, however, will provide rapid, accurate, reliable, and inexpensive screening for hemoglobin S. (Author)
