About Sickle Cell Disease and Sickle Cell Crisis

Sickle cell disease (SCD) or sickle cell anemia (SCA) is a genetic, autosomal, recessive blood disorder characterized by red blood cells that assume an abnormal, rigid, sickle shape. This sickling is caused by an abnormality in the hemoglobin molecule found in red blood cells which carry oxygen throughout the body. Sickled red blood cells cannot pass through capillaries and may occlude capillaries and small blood vessels. This blockage can cause a wide range of serious and life-threatening conditions, including chronic hemolytic anemia, chronic pain and acute painful crisis, stroke, acute chest syndrome, as well as cumulative damage to tissues and organs.

Patients with SCD experience an average life expectancy of approximately 40 years. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America (SCDAA), it is estimated that over 70,000 people have sickle cell disease and about 1,000 babies are born with the disease each year in the United States.

Vaso-occlusive crisis is caused by sickle-shaped red blood cells that obstruct capillaries and restrict blood flow to an organ, resulting in ischemia (restriction of blood supply), pain, necrosis, and often organ damage. The frequency, severity, and duration of these crises can vary considerably.

Conference Call Information

ADVENTRX will hold a conference call today at 8:30 am ET to discuss the potential acquisition. Interested parties may access the conference call by dialing (800) 860-2442 from the U.S. and (412) 858-4600 from outside the U.S. and requesting the ADVENTRX Pharmaceuticals Corporat
