LIVING WITH SICKLE CELL
Living with Sickle Cell or knowing someone with SC can be tremendously challenging, so you need accurate information from some of the best doctors in the country. From new, innovative therapies like crizanlizumab to guidelines for adults and children we have all the knowledge you need.
Patients with SC are extremely vulnerable and may need to get transfusions for a variety of reasons. There's a pressing need in the Black community for more donors. Register to give blood today.
"Criz" is a monoclonal antibody medication given intravenously to patients with SC aged 16+. It reduces hospital admissions for sickle cell crises and is usually used alongside Hydroxyurea/hydroxycarbamide.
