THALASSAEMIA/ HAEMOGLOBINOPATHY ANTENATAL SCREENING 

Host: Dr Russell Shute – GP Advisor to the SA Palliative Shared Care Program

Guest Speaker: Dr David Ross

DR DAVID ROSS – MBBS, PhD, FRACP, FRCPA – Consultant Haematologist

Dr David Ross trained in clinical and laboratory haematology at the Royal Adelaide Hospital and the IMVS, spending one year at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge.

In 2009, he was awarded a PhD for his thesis on the subject of minimal residual disease in chronic myeloid leukaemia.

In 2009, he joined the Haematology Department at Flinders Medical Centre, where he is responsible for diagnostic haematology services.

He is also an investigator in several clinical trials, and an active member of the Australasian Leukaemia and Lymphoma Group.

His involvement in thalassaemia stems from his interest in molecular diagnostics in haematology.

Thalassaemia is an inherited disorder associated with impaired synthesis of one or more globin chains with alpha thalassaemia and beta thalassaemia being the most common forms.

Haemoglobinopathies are a group of inherited disorders characterised by structural variations of the haemoglobin molecule, such as HbS (sickle), HbE etc

All women at their first antenatal visit are encouraged to complete the ‘Family of Origin Questionnaire’ – Thalassaemia / Haemoglobinopathy (Ref. Statewide Anaemia Guideline).

If the woman has not had a recent CBE and iron studies performed at SA PATHOLOGY samples to perform these tests should be collected and forwarded with the questionnaire and a copy of any available pathology results.

It is important to link information with both partners being tested and to identify at risk couples.
