About The Research...

Sickle cell disease (SCD) or Sickle cell anaemia (SCA) is a genetic blood disorder that occurs when someone has abnormal haemoglobin on their red blood cell called Haemoglobin S (normal haemoglobin type is A). Sickle cell disease changes the shape of a person’s red blood cells. They are normally round and concave but SCD changes them to become long and stiff, forming the shape of a sickle. These sickle-shaped blood cells don’t flow through veins and arteries easily which leads to them clumping up and clogging the blood vessels. In turn, blood and oxygen can’t get through, and parts of the body (like the heart, lungs, and kidneys) can’t work the way they should. The blockage also causes pain or crises.

The purpose of this study is to learn more about how a potential new drug for treating SCD symptoms affects the body and how the body processes it.

This trial will run at our Manchester EPU clinic and will last approximately 54 days in total with 9 outpatient visits and a single 2-night residential stay.

Reimbursement: Up to £2,800 plus travel expenses
