Abstract
2D:4D FINGER RATIO AMONG THE E BETA THALASSEMIA MALES OF BENGALEE HINDU CASTE POPULATION, WEST BENGAL, INDIA

Piyali Das* and Arup Ratan Bandyopadhyay,

ABSTRACT

Since nearly all biological functions are in some way related to one or other aspect of the physical dimensions, thus bio metric measurements have attracted interest of all sections including anthropology. Well documented prenatal relationship between epidermal ridge formation and bone dimension indicated by the finger lengths might be influenced due to the pleiotropic effect of thalassemia. In order to understand the association between the 2nd and 4th finger digit ratio of the hands and thalassemia, 75 clinically diagnosed E-β thalassemia male patients were compared with 75 apparently healthy male individuals without any family history of thalassemia as control from Bengalee Hindu caste population of West Bengal. The study revealed significantly (p<0.05) lower 2D:4D ratio in thalassemia male patients than the ratio in control males for both hands. Results achieved in the present work might be valuable bio metric measurements and as well as stimulates further research related to bone dimensions in β thalassemia.

Keywords: Digit ratio, E- ?-Thalassemia, Bengalee populations.
