    If one parent has sickle-cell anaemia and the other has sickle-cell trait, then the child has a 50% chance of having sickle-cell disease and a 50% chance of having sickle-cell trait.[1]
    Scientists are seeking more targeted and tailored therapies for sickle cell disease, which results from a mutation that gives hemoglobin molecules a propensity to link together and cause red blood cells to develop a sickle shape.
