Dr. Gauravi A Dhruva is an Associate Professor in the Department of Pathology, P.D.U. Medical College, Rajkot. In this exclusive interview with SpeakBindas, she talks about disease of Thalassaemia, new development in the field of pathology and her appeal for blood donation.
Thalassemia is an inherited autosomal recessive blood disease. In thalassemia the genetic defect, which could be either mutation or deletion, results in reduced rate of synthesis or no synthesis of one of the globin chains that make up hemoglobin. This can cause the formation of abnormal hemoglobin molecules, thus causing anemia, the characteristic presenting symptom of the thalassemias.

Blood can not be generated artificially in factories. It is naturally created in our body. Its quantity doesn’t decrease if we donate it. But if we donate it, it can be really helpful to those who need it badly. Watch this video where Dr. Dhruva appeals, especially to youth to donate blood and save lives.
