Are you or your child at least 13 years old and have sickle cell disease? In this stidy, researchers are trying to find out if a new medication improves the success of a blood stem cell transplant. People 13 years old or older who are eligible for a blood stem cell transplant to treat sickle cell disease may be able to participate. Healthy family members over age 13 who are matched to transplant recipients are also needed to donate blood for the study. This study is taking place at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

Are you at least 18 years old and have sickle cell disease? People with sickle cell disease often have problems with their heart, brain, kidneys, liver, and lungs as they age. These problems may improve after transplant. Researchers in this study are trying to learn how and why this happens. To participate in this study, you must be at least 18 years old and have sickle cell disease. You must also have a history of problems with your heart, lungs, or other criteria that the study doctor will discuss with you. This study is taking place at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

The primary goal of this study is to determine whether curative therapies for individuals with SCD will result in improved or worsening heart, lung, and kidney damage when compared to individuals with SCD receiving standard therapy. The investigators will also explore whether certain genes are associated with a good or bad outcome after curative therapy for SCD.

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.

Are you pregnant and willing to donate umbilical cord blood to support future sickle cell disease therapies? This study seeks to determine the best way to collect, store, and handle blood from newborns to help researchers improve future sickle cell disease therapies. To participate in this study, you must be pregnant, 45 years old or younger, and willing to donate umbilical cord blood from your newborn. Newborns may be healthy or at risk for sickle cell disease or sickle cell trait. This study is located in Bethesda, Maryland.

Do you have sickle cell disease and have not had a blood transfusion in the previous 8 weeks? This study will look at whether a particular gene in people who have sickle cell disease increases the risk for more severe symptoms and complications. To participate in this study, you must be between 18 and 80. This study is located in Bethesda, Maryland.

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.

Are you an adult with sickle cell disease or would like to help research? Some people who have sickle cell disease are at greater risk for developing abnormal blood clots (venous thromboembolism). This could be a blood clot in the leg (called deep vein thrombosis) or a clot that can break off and travel to the lung (called a pulmonary embolism). This study will look at the blood of people who have sickle cell disease and venous thromboembolism, as well as healthy volunteers, to help researchers develop better treatments to prevent blood clots. Participants in this study must be between 18 and 80 years old and be either a healthy volunteer or have sickle cell disease or trait. This study is located in Bethesda, Maryland.
