Latest Hemoglobin C Stories
Unraveled the molecular mechanism whereby sickle cell hemoglobin confers a survival advantage against malaria The latest issue of the journal Cell carries an article that is likely to help solve one of the long-standing mysteries of biomedicine. In a study that challenges currently held views, researchers at the Instituto Gulbenkian de CiÃªncia (IGC), in Portugal, unravel the molecular mechanism whereby sickle cell hemoglobin confers a survival advantage against malaria, the...
Abstract 185 Audio and video interviews available at ISC 2011 Multimedia Study Highlights: - Symptomless strokes occur in about 20 percent of children with sickle cell disease when their red blood cell levels severely drop. These silent strokes also occur in about 7 percent of hospitalized children without sickle cell who have severe drops in hemoglobin. - Acute anemic events could help account for the high prevalence of silent strokes in children with sickle cell disease.
