No electrophoretically separable haemoglobin variants were detected in any of the haemolysates. The Hb-A$_2$ levels were elevated above the upper normal limit (3.5% of total haemoglobin) in 9.2% of the Yemenite Jews and 24.5% of the Kurdish Jews. These findings suggest that the approximate frequencies of the gene for $\beta$-thalassaemia may be of the order of 0.05 and 0.1 respectively in these previously expatriate Jewish communities. The high incidence of the $\beta$-thalassaemia trait in the Kurdish Jewish subjects is in agreement with previous studies on Jewish communities of Kurdish origin. No... previous reports of $\beta$-thalassaemia in Yemenite Jews appear to have been recorded.
