Know The Latest IN SICKLE Cell Research

Currently, the only cure for sickle cell disease (SCD) is a bone marrow or stem cell transplant, as shown in this segment from 60 Minutes. However, these treatment options are not viable for everyone. Clinical trials related to a sickle cell disease cure that will work for all patients are being conducted as part of the National Institutes of Health’s Cure Sickle Cell Initiative.
