Press Release

A drastic reduction in the total red blood cells or RBC count or hemoglobin is known as anemia. It can be defined as the inability to carry optimum amount of oxygen by the blood. Sickle-cell diseases (SCD) are types of blood disorders which are usually inherited genetically. One of the common types of SCDs is the sickle-cell anemia or SCA. It essentially gives rise to an irregularity in hemoglobin, the protein that carries oxygen in the blood. Hemoglobin is found typically in the red blood cells of the body. As a result a sickle-like shaped cell is formed under certain conditions.

Tribulations in sickle cell disease usually start to take shape at a very early age (within the first year of birth). This might lead to various health problems including pain attacks also known as the sickle-cell crisis, swelling in the limbs, microbial infections, and in certain cases, stroke. Chronic pain may develop with age. Sickle-cell diseases arise when an individual inherits abnormal copies of hemoglobin gene from each parent.

According to Center for Disease Control and Prevention, as of 2016, around 100,000 people in the U.S. are affected by sickle cell diseases or SCDs. Sickle cell diseases are very common among black or African Americans. Around 1 in 13 babies belonging to the race are born with sickle cell diseases. Growing prevalence of the disease will give rise to an increased demand for sickle cell disease prevention and cure, thereby augmenting the growth of the overall sickle cell anemia therapeutics market.

There is a growing need of early detection and prevention of curable diseases especially among the adults. This is going to be a key opportunity in the market as the percentage of adult population is increasing on a daily basis owing to the rise in life expectancy among the global population. Additionally, the demand for safe and efficacious treatments is gaining prevalence in the market. This factor coupled with unmet medical needs among the patients will fuel the growth of the global sickle cell anemia therapeutics industry.
