Do you or your child have sickle cell disease or sickle cell trait? This study is interested in understanding pain crises and lung complications that occur in sickle cell disease patients and patients who have other red blood cell disorders. To participate in this study, you must be at least 2 years old with known or suspected sickle cell disease, sickle cell trait, or other red blood cell disorders. Participants will have a physical exam and receive standard medical care for sickle cell disease, including routine follow-up tests and procedures. This study is located in Washington, D.C., and Bethesda, Maryland.

Do you or your child have sickle cell disease and also have an interest in contributing to long-term data collection? This study is monitoring patients and collecting biological samples from patients who have sickle cell disease to better understand long-term outcomes. Participants can be any age and must have sickle cell disease. This study is located in six sites in Illinois, Louisiana, North Carolina, and Tennessee.

Are you an adult with severe inherited hemolytic anemia who has a well-matched sibling bone marrow donor? This study aims to improve bone marrow transplant (BMT) procedures for older patients by using a low dose of radiation and two immunosuppressive drugs instead of chemotherapy. This type of BMT procedure is described as nonmyeloablative because it does not destroy bone marrow. Participants in this study must be between 2 and 65 years old; have a severe congenital anemia, such as sickle cell disease or beta thalassemia; and have a sibling who is a well-matched stem cell donor. This study is located in Bethesda, Maryland.

Do you have sickle cell disease or thalassemia, or are you a healthy volunteer who is willing to undergo a brain MRI? This study aims to understand whether sickle cell disease or thalassemia affects the processes that naturally increase blood flow in the brain when people experience stress. Researchers will measure blood flow using brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Participants in this study must be at least 7 years old and have sickle cell disease or thalassemia. Healthy volunteers can also participate. This study is located in Los Angeles, California.

Do you or a relative have sickle cell disease and are interested in a new stem cell transplant procedure? This study aims to see if a new procedure is effective, safe, and well tolerated in people with sickle cell disease. To participate in this study, you must be at least 18 years old with sickle cell disease and have a relative who is a haploidentical match, which is a half-matched donor (e.g., mother, father, or child). This study is located at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

Do you or your child have sickle cell disease and a relative willing to donate stem cells? This study is giving a second blood stem cell transplant to people with sickle cell disease who have had their disease return after one stem cell transplant. To participate in this study, you must be 4 years old or older, have sickle cell disease, and have had your disease return after receiving a blood stem cell transplant. You must also have a relative who is older than 2 years and can donate stem cells via a blood draw. This study takes place in Bethesda, Maryland.

Does your child have sickle cell disease or β0-thalassemia? This study is using surveys and interviews to assess various attributes in parents of children with sickle cell disease. Specifically, the researchers are looking at their knowledge of genetics and genomics, their trust in healthcare providers and researchers, and their attitudes toward and expectations of clinical research. To participate, your child must be at least a year old. This study takes place in Memphis, Tennessee.
