Sickle Cell Disease is a common hereditary form of anaemia. The disease leads to chronic anaemia and pain caused by the occlusion of small blood vessels due to sickle shaped red blood cells. This leads to severe complications and organ damage, resulting in reduced life expectancy. Charlotte van Tuin evaluates the frequency of pain and looks at the best way to combat this through hospitalisation. She also researches the prevalence and progression levels of various forms of organ damage.
