Sickle cell anemia is an inherited blood disorder occurring in approximately 1 out of every 400 African-American infants born in the US each year. Individuals of Mediterranean, Arabian, Caribbean, South and Central American, and East Indian ancestry can also be affected. This book collects recent research on sickle cell anemia from Africa, Australia, Israel, the US, and Greece. Chapters examine malaria resistance in red cell disorders, resonant Raman studies on functional erythrocytes, psychobiological reactivity in children with sickle cell disease, and acute chest syndrome in sickle cell disease. Other subjects include the heart in sickle cell disease, oral health status, and anthropometric findings in sickle cell disease. A few color images are included.
