The purpose of this research registry is to collect information about patients with sickle cell disease and their treatments. The registry will allow researchers to review and study medical information about many individuals with sickle cell disease, which may help them to answer questions about the disease, its treatment, and best ways to optimize the delivery of care. It will also help researchers identify and recruit patients who are eligible for participation in future studies directed at evaluating the safety and effectiveness of drugs, devices, or procedures.
This study is enrolling participants of both genders, who are older than a month of age and who are being treated in the Sickle Cell Program of Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC.
