About Sickle Cell Disease

Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) and Sickle Cell Anemia (SCA) are a group of genetic disorders that result in dysfunctional hemoglobin and a depletion of certain fatty acids in the membrane of red and white blood cells. These abnormalities increase the red and white blood cells tendency to adhere to each other, which results in episodic occlusions of blood vessels, reperfusion damage, and excruciating pain. Ultimately, many children develop end organ damage and strokes. There are approximately 100,000 cases of SCD in the United States and millions outside of the United States.  Treatment options are limited.
