Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

Impact of each VOC Crisis in patients with sickle cell disease

While the long term cumulative effects of frequency, duration and severity of VOC on mortality is known in SCD, there is little known about the impact of each individual crisis or the amount of damage during crisis versus background smoldering ischemia from the disease. Any effort in quantifying this for SCD in the absence of interventional agents initially, and then as a potential measurement of the benefit of drug therapy, may help science inform additional drug development and treatment selection.
