Sickle Cell Anemia

What is Sickle Cell Anemia?

Sickle cell anemia is when red blood cells are crescent shaped resulting in less oxygen being carried throughout the body. They do not move around as easily as normal red blood cells. Symptoms include fatigue, jaundice, shortness of breath, and pale skin.

Treatment for sickle cell anemia includes pain medications, blood transfusions, and antibiotics for infection. A common drug class used to treat sickle cell anemia is the antimetabolites drug class.
