Abstract

Lipid profile was estimated in sera of patients in major thalassemia (Tmajor),minor
thalassemia (Tminor) compared with control group. 95 individual (26minor),(29major) was
admitted to thalassemic center in Amara city .S.Iraq ,and 40 healthy as control group. Lipid
profile which include Cholesterol (Ch),Triglyceride(TG),Phospholipid (Ph.L),Total lipid
(T.L),High density lipoprotein -Cholesterol (HDL-C),Low density lipoprotein-Cholesterol
(LDL-C),Very low density lipoprotein-Cholesterol (VLDL-C) .In our study there were found
increase levels of Ch,TG,HDL-C,VLDL-C and total lipid in sera of both patient groups
compared with control,while alower of LDL-C and Ph.L levels was found in sera of minor and
major thalassemia patients.
