In two out of every 100 new-born children an anomaly is discovered for any reason, in consanguineous couples this risk is doubled.
Healthy children may also be born from consanguineous marriages. The baby is born by deriving fathers and mother's genes. Thanks chromosomes, to mother and father's genes are transmitted to the child in the womb. These genes are transmitted in double structure. These genes carry and transmit the inheritance.
Axar.az reports that a number of genetic diseases can be found in children born of consanguineous marriages. Thalassemia is a disease accompanied by the disintegration of blood. There are many types of this disease. If two thalassemia carriers marry, the couple's children there is 25% possibility that they will suffer from thalassemia.
In fact, thalessemia carriers are considered to be healthy. They do not need treatment. However, in such patients some mild anemia can be found. Therefore, many do not even imagine that they are carriers of thalassemia. They learn it only if they have a child with thalassemia or after some special examination of hematologic treatment.
However, during the consanguineous marriage the risk of transmission of thalassemia from their ancestors to their child increases. The risk of having the same defective genes in close relatives is 12.5%. Therefore, when the final decision of two close relatives is made, the appointment with doctor to determine whether they have defective genes must be made.
To do this, you do not need to turn to foreign countries. Under the guidance of Izmir's Ege University professor, our compatriot Afig Bardaly the exact diagnosis with the help of the new model of technology can be put in the Afgen genetic laboratory in Azerbaijan.
It should be noted that this center has been in operation since 2012 in Bioloji Tebabet Clinic.
