Proceedings of the First International Conference on Sickle Cell Disease: A world Health Problem. Washington, D.C.: Howard University Centre for Sickle Cell Disease; pp. – Sickle cell anemia is a disease in which the body produces abnormally shaped red blood cells that have a crescent or sickle shape. These cells do not last as long as normal, round, red blood cells, which leads to anemia (low number of red blood cells). The sickle cells also get stuck in blood vessels, blocking blood flow. Signs and symptoms of sickle cell disease usually begin .

The management of end-organ damage represents a major challenge facing individuals living with sickle cell disease (SCD), the majority of whom now survive into adulthood. 1 The prevention and treatment of SCD-related complications linked to cardiopulmonary and kidney disease are especially challenging for .

Sickle cell disease (SCD) is a group of blood disorders typically inherited from a person's parents. The most common type is known as sickle cell anaemia (SCA).

It results in an abnormality in the oxygen-carrying protein haemoglobin found in red blood cells. This leads to a rigid, sickle-like shape under certain circumstances.

Problems in sickle cell disease typically. General Discussion Summary Sickle cell disease (SCD) is a rare blood disorder that is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner.

It is characterized by the presence of sickle, or crescent-shaped, red blood cells (erythrocytes) in the bloodstream.

Representatives of health care and research organizations concerned with sickle cell disease discussed ways to enhance cooperation and collaboration. CDC, together with the American Society of Hematology (ASH) external icon and the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America (SCDAA) external icon, created the Sickle Cell Trait toolkit is a collection of resources to increase understanding of sickle cell trait.
