As you already must know Sickle Cell disease is genetic, but the GOOD NEWS is there is no known risk that babies may develop sickle cell disease.
It's a good idea to first check with a genetic specialist and make your decision from there.
A single sickle-cell gene protects against malaria. Two sickle-cell genes produce sickle-cell disease.
sickle cell disease is genetic disease i.e caused by certain modification of genetic material. so a baby born with this disease.
Sickle Cell Anemia is also referred to as Sickle Cell Disease. The official abbreviation for Sickle Cell Disease is "SCD" or "SCA" if one is referring to it as Sickle Cell Anemia.
No, sickle cell disease is not cancerous.
No. Sickle Cell is not an infectious disease, but is genetic.
Unlike sickle cell disease, sickle cell trait does not cause health problems
it is a genetic disease , both parents have to have sickle cell trait .
Sickle cell trait can not lead to sickle cell disease. This is because the gene for Red blood cells are dominate over the gene for sickle cell. There for if you have sickle cell you can have some minor symptoms but usually you don't even know you have sickle cell trait. Sickle cell trait is rarely harmful and can almost never turn into sickle cell disease.
Both males and females can get sickle cell disease.
Sickle cell anemia is an inherited disease. People who have the disease inherit two copies of the sickle cell gene-one from each parent.
in sickle cell trait you don't actually have the disease. you are only able to pass the disease to your kids if you marry a person with sickle cell or that also has the trait. sickle cell disease is when you actually have the disease. you can pass it to your kids if you marry someone with the trait or the disease. if you marry someone without a trait or disease then your kids will most likely have the trait.
Mutations in the HBB gene cause sickle cell disease.
Sickle cell disease is caused when someone inherits sickle shaped hemoglobin. It is a disease that can be managed, but not cured.
Sickle cell anemia is a blood disorder characterized primarily episodes of pain. Sickle-cell anaemia is a form of sickle-cell disease in which there is homozygosity for the mutation that causes HbS.
Sickle cell trait occurs when a person inherits a sickle cell disease gene but does not develop symptoms. Sickle cell disease is a blood disorder in which the body produces an abnormal type of the oxygen-carrying substance hemoglobin in the red blood cells. Normal hemoglobin is called hemoglobin A, but people with sickle cell disease have only hemoglobin S, which turns normal, round red blood cells into abnormally curved (sickle) shapes. Normally, a person inherits two genes (one from each parent) that produce beta-globin, a protein needed to produce normal hemoglobin (hemoglobin A). A person with sickle cell trait inherits one normal beta-globin gene (hemoglobin A) and one defective gene (hemoglobin S). People with sickle cell trait rarely have symptoms due to the condition because they also have some normal hemoglobin. But they can pass the sickle cell gene to their children. A person in whom both beta-globin genes are abnormal (they produce hemoglobin S) has sickle cell disease, which can cause serious problems. Both parents must have either the sickle cell trait or the disease itself for a child to have sickle cell disease.
Sickle Cell Anemia is an inherited disease.
Yes, Hispanics do get sickle cell anemia!
Sickle cell disease is a recessive trait. And it's pretty rare.
bone marrow transplant is the only known cure of sickle cell disease.
Sickle cell disease is an autosomal recessive mutation.
A proposal for a project investigating sickle cell disease.
well no cancer can not be cured by sickle celled anemia because sickle cell is the abnormalty of the shape of the cell.
An example of point-mutation is sickle-cell anemia. Sickle-cell disease is hereditary.
If you have sickle cell trait, you would have a few disformed red blood cells in your body. If you have sickle cell disease, almost all of your red blood cells are disformed. :(
Sickle cell disease is when the red blood cells are shaped like a disc. This disease is passed down through the family.
