Sickle cell disease is a life-threatening genetic disorder that can be effectively treated following early diagnosis via newborn screening. However, sickle cell disease is most prevalent i...
This is a study for parents of infants with Sickle Cell Trait (SCT) identified by newborn screening who are referred and present for in person SCT education at the Institution. The study ...
DISPLACE is a three part, multi-center U.S. based study to evaluate the barriers to stroke screening and prevention in children with sickle cell anemia (SCA). In the United States, TCD (Tr...
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...
To continue to follow the newborn cohort and the over-35 years of age cohort from the Cooperative Study of Sickle Cell Disease (CSSCD), a study of the natural history of sickle cell diseas...
Sickle cell disease and sickle cell trait are identified through universal newborn screening, which has been implemented in all hospitals across the United States since the 1970s. Yet, studies report ...
Sickle cell disease is a major public health problem in Senegal. It is an inherited disease that affects about 300,000 births worldwide each year. There are 70 million people affected worldwide, 80% o...
Children with sickle cell hemoglobinopathy (SCH) can develop proliferative retinopathy with vision loss, but lack of consensus exists regarding screening regimens. We sought to determine the prevalenc...
Sickle cell anaemia is one of the most common hemoglobinopathies worldwide and an important public health problem in Brazil. This study evaluated the prevalence of sickle cell anaemia and its traits i...
Severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) refers to a group of genetic disorders characterized by greatly compromised cellular and humoral immunity. Children with SCID are asymptomatic at birth, but the...
The identification of selected parameters in newborn infants by various tests, examinations, or other procedures. Screening may be performed by clinical or laboratory measures. A screening test is designed to sort out healthy neonates (INFANT, NEWBORN) from those not well, but the screening test is not intended as a diagnostic device, rather instead as epidemiologic.
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.
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 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)
The condition of being heterozygous for hemoglobin S.
