Patients with SCD have an autosomal-recessive hemolytic disorder that occurs predominantly in persons of African descent but is also found among Italian, Arabian, Greek, and Indian people.

The mission of the NC Sickle Cell Syndrome Program is to promote the health and well-being of persons with sickle cell disease through the reduction of morbidity Sickle cell anemia is a disease in which the body produces abnormally shaped red blood cells that have a crescent or sickle shape. These cells do not last as long as normal, round, red blood cells, which leads to anemia (low number of red blood cells).

The sickle cells also get stuck in blood vessels, blocking blood flow. Signs and symptoms of sickle cell disease usually begin in early Sickle cell disease (a hemoglobinopathy) causes a chronic hemolytic anemia occurring almost exclusively in is caused by homozygous inheritance of genes for hemoglobin (Hb) S.
