Just two decades ago, there were virtually no therapeutic treatments for patients with sickle cell anemia, a severe condition in which blood cells form rigid sickle shapes, damaging several organs in the body. Today, there’s not only a medication, but thanks to new research from Vivien Sheehan and data interpretation from QIAGEN’s Ingenuity Variant Analysis, scientists also have a promising new lead for another treatment option.
