Did you know sickle cell anemia is an inherited group of disorders, red blood cells contort into a sickle shape.
That's interesting. I know that some treatmnets include medications, blood transfusions, and rarely a bone-marrow transplant.
Sickle cell anemia is is inherited as an autosomal recessive trait. Patients who inherit hemoglobin S in a homozygous autosomal recessive fashion (Hb SS) have sickle cell anemia, while those who are heterozygous have sickle trait (Hb AS).
This is a normal red blood cell
People who carry the sickle cell, carry one of the genes that cause sickle cell disease, but do not have the condition.
Wow! Did you know that If two copies of the Hb S gene mutation are detected, then the person has sickle cell disease.
Sickle cell anemia is a genetic condition that has an autosomal recessive inheritance pattern. The condition isn't linked to the sex chromosomes. Someone must receive two copies of a recessive allele in order to have the condition.
Sickle cell disease is a hereditary disease seen most often among people of African ancestry. The inheritance pattern is autosomal recessive.
This is a sickle cell
Sickle cell anemia is not an X-linked disease. However data shows that males are predominance of sickle cell
Sickle cell trait is an inherited blood disorder that affects 1 million to 3 million Americans and 8 to 10 percent of African Americans. Also affects Hispanics, Asians, Caucasians, and Middle Eastern countries.
The national median life expectancy is 42–47 years. People with sickle cell face many challenges, including severe pain episodes, stroke, and organ damage.
