No.. It's not true...The thalassemias are inherited disorders of Hb synthesis that result from an alteration in the rate of globin chain production nothing related to blood groups of parents. A decrease in the rate of production of a certain globin chain or chains (α, β, γ, δ) impedes Hb synthesis and creates an imbalance with the other, normally produced globin chains.
