Abstract

Hemoglobin electrophoresis realised as a routine screening test on 1 500 gabonese individuals revealed the existence of a sickle cell abnormality n 24.40% cases (22.27% were AS heterozygotous and 2.1% were SS homozygotous). Bapounov and Fang ethnies appeared to be the most involved. The importance of such disturbance (I gabonese individual out of 4 is concerned) could justify the creation of Prenatal Counseling Centers mainly dealing with this genetic problem.
