What Is Sickle Cell Disease?
Sickle cell disease comprises a collection of hereditary disorders transmitted within families. Individuals with this condition possess abnormal hemoglobin in their red blood cells, known as hemoglobin S or sickle hemoglobin.
In the United States, around 100,000 people are impacted by sickle cell disease (SCD), with a higher prevalence among individuals of African descent, occurring in approximately 1 out of every 365 African-American births.
Sickle cell anemia occurs when a person inherits two hemoglobin S genes, designated as hemoglobin SS. This type of sickle cell disease, known as hemoglobin SS, is the most common and often the most severe form.
