Database Generation for SCD Patients.
Individual variations exist in the genotype and manifestation of sickle cell disease. These variations also account for the level and pattern of morbidity experienced by each individual. In the light of this, we are currently analyzing some modifying factors such as the Haemoglobin levels; the Foetal (HbF) levels and the thalassemic status of patients. Each patient will also be genetically characterized. The information gathered will serve as baseline data for further studies and will also help to easily identify those at greatest risks of poor prognosis and pave the way for improved management of the disease.
Since knowing these parameters will help your doctor better care for you, please ask your doctor to contact SCHAF @ www.schafgng.org OR
