The results of a large screening for the transferrin polymorphism in five different areas of Italy (3099 cases) are given. Frequencies of common types were similar to those of already known Caucasian populations. Among rare types Tf(B) were more frequently observed than Tf(D). Evidence is given for the existence of the Tf(C)6 allele in Caucasians. A family group analysis of some rare types was done.
