Brief description Hereditary haemochromatosis is one of the most common genetic disorders in humans, affecting 1 in 200 Australians. We have identified a change in a peroxisomal gene which may affect iron levels in humans. The prevalence of this gene change in Australian haemochromatosis patients will be examined followed by a systematic analysis of how this protein controls iron levels in the body. Our goal is to identify and diagnose genetic changes which influence iron loading in haemochromatosis patients.
