This experiment was carried out at animal field that belonging to College of Agriculture and Forestry/Mosul University in order to find out the best source of energy in fattening rations and to study their effects on some blood parameters and carcass sensory test of Awassi lambs. Fifteen local male lambs after weaning age were used in this experiment and were assigned randomly to three experimental groups.These experimental groups were fed add libitum on three rations containing barley, molasses and rice polishings as a source of energy for 105 day period .The results of this experiment showed that there were significant differences (P≤0.05) on red blood cells count (RBC), hemoglobin level (Hb), packed cell volume (PCV), total protein and high significantly differences (P≤0.01) on white blood cells count (WBC) and albumin among the three treatments. As about the carcass sensory evaluation the statistical analysis showed that there were significant differences (P≤0.05) on tenderness and juiciness traits and also high significantly differences (P≤0.01) on texture, aroma and acceptability between experimental groups as compared to control group. Concluded of this study that the rice polishing diet was used in the third treatment was appeared significant improved on some blood parameters and meat quality when compared with other energy sources in the first and second treatments

β-Thalassemia is more an inherted anemia publicity that common in the world and especially in Mediterranean region,and the most important cause of mortality in patients with β –thalassemia . The present study carried out on ( 75 ) children of males and females thier age from (1-12 ) years with B- thalassemia in Al- Najaf ,there were (60%)child of them infected with B- thalassemia major , who consult the thalassemia center for teaching Al- Zahra Hospital for birth and children in Najaf governorate, while ( 15 ) healthy child used as a control group.The results presnt study showed that a significant decrease ( p < 0.05 ) in number of red blood cells and the concentration of heamoglobin and packed cell volume ( PCV ) and the values of the mean corpuscular volume ( MCV ) and the number of blood platelets in the blood of infected children with β- thalassemia major compared with healthy children, while the results showed a significant increase ( P < 0.05 ) in the total number of white blood cells in children infected with the disease compared with the control group, as the current research distincted that the ratio of males infected with β- thalassemia higher than the ratio of females ( % 68. 33 , % 31.67 respectively ) , also children had blood group ( A ) were the most susceptible to the infection with β-thalassemia ( 38.33 % ) compared with the other blood groups , as the infected children who carry the factor rhesus positive ( Rh+ ) were ( % 65 ) higher than the patients with rhesus factor negative ( Rh- ) (35 %).
