The data indicate that Swiss-HPFH, characterized by slightly elevated Hb F and G gamma levels and no recognizable hematological abnormality, is associated with a chromosome whose restriction enzyme haplotype is identical to the no. 3 (Senegal) haplotype found in black sickle cell (SS) patients. Many adults with this chromosome have high G gamma but normal Hb F levels. It is suggested that the Swiss-HPFH phenotype results from the action of more than one factor; one is linked to the beta-globin gene cluster and causes high G gamma values, while others result in an increased Hb F production and are perhaps of different origins.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/49920||ISSN:||0340-6717||DOI:||10.1007/BF00272379||Source:||Human Genetics[ISSN 0340-6717],v. 77, p. 132-136|
