Spectralis HRA+OCT Imaging of the Retina With Autofluorescence in Sickle Cell Disease

To determine the retinal and choroidal thickness in patients with sickle cell disease compared to age, race matched population without sickle cell disease to allow a better understanding o...

Dose-Escalation Study of SCD-101 in Sickle Cell Disease

The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and clinical effects of SCD-101 when given to adults with sickle cell disease. SCD-101 inhibits sickling of red blood cells containing ...

Cerebrovascular Involvement in Sickle Cell Disease - Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center

To continue studies on the two major neurological complications of sickle cell disease (SCD): namely, stroke and chronic encephalopathy.

A Study of Oral L-citrulline in Sickle Cell Disease

Sickle cell disease is a genetic red blood cell disorder that can result in blocking of the small blood vessels from sickle shaped red blood cells. This causes pain, the main feature of si...

Sickle-cell Disease Registry of the GPOH

Sickle cell disease is one of the most common hereditary diseases. Most severe complications can be avoided if the disease is detected early and treated appropriately. The sickle cell dis...

A Phase 3 Trial of l-Glutamine in Sickle Cell Disease.

Oxidative stress contributes to the complex pathophysiology of sickle cell disease. Oral therapy with pharmaceutical-grade l-glutamine (USAN, glutamine) has been shown to increase the proportion of th...

Differences in heme and hemopexin content in lipoproteins from patients with sickle cell disease.

High blood cholesterol is associated with atherogenesis and endothelial dysfunction. The latter is present in hemolytic diseases, such as sickle cell anemia, whose carriers have hypocholesterolemia an...

Sickle cell disease is associated with higher mortality among patients hospitalized with ischemic bowel disease.

Sickle cell disease (SCD) is the most common inheritable hematologic disorder in the USA and is associated with ischemic organ diseases. SCD-associated ischemic bowel disease is increasing being recog...

Biomarker signatures of sickle cell disease severity.

Identifying sickle cell disease patients at high risk of complications could lead to personalized treatment and better prognosis but despite many advances prediction of the clinical course of these pa...

Total hip arthroplasty in osteonecrosis secondary to sickle cell disease.

Sickle cell disease (SCD) is a multisystem disease, and the predominant articular manifestation is osteonecrosis (ON). Total hip arthroplasty (THA) is technically challenging, and the complication rat...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

One of the sickle cell disorders characterized by the presence of both hemoglobin S and hemoglobin C. It is similar to, but less severe than sickle cell anemia.

An abnormal hemoglobin resulting from the substitution of valine for glutamic acid at position 6 of the beta chain of the globin moiety. The heterozygous state results in sickle cell trait, the homozygous in sickle cell anemia.

An acute purulent infection of the meninges and subarachnoid space caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae, most prevalent in children and adults over the age of 60. This illness may be associated with OTITIS MEDIA; MASTOIDITIS; SINUSITIS; RESPIRATORY TRACT INFECTIONS; sickle cell disease (ANEMIA, SICKLE CELL); skull fractures; and other disorders. Clinical manifestations include FEVER; HEADACHE; neck stiffness; and somnolence followed by SEIZURES; focal neurologic deficits (notably DEAFNESS); and COMA. (From Miller et al., Merritt's Textbook of Neurology, 9th ed, p111)

A disease characterized by chronic hemolytic anemia, episodic painful crises, and pathologic involvement of many organs. It is the clinical expression of homozygosity for hemoglobin S.

The condition of being heterozygous for hemoglobin S.
