World Sickle Cell Awareness Day

On the 19th of June we celebrate World Sickle Cell Awareness Day. This day we raise the public awareness about the sickle cell disease, sickle cell patients and treatment methods for the disease. Sickle cell disease (SCD) is an inherited genetic abnormality of hemoglobin (the oxygen-carrying protein) in red blood cells. Sickle Cell Disease The […]

Today, 8 May, is International Thalassaemia Day

In time-honoured tradition, the Thalassaemia International Federation (TIF) is organising many diverse activities for the International Thalassaemia Day. Celebrated on the 8th May every year, these activities aim to sensitise the decision and policy makers and the health and patient committees at large on thalassaemia: How to prevent, treat and cure in a patient-centred manner. […]

Presentation of new article at the ILSH Conference, Vancouver 8-11 May 2019

Presentation of new article at the 13th Annual Sickle Cell Symposium

Conclusion of the article: The Lorrca with Oxygenscan can fully characterize RBC deformability under a range of oxygen concentrations. Key measurements – PoS, EImin, and EImax – were different between genotypes, and changed significantly with standard of care SCD treatments. We therefore conclude that these are useful biomarkers of clinical severity and treatment response, and […]
