Sickle Cell Study Recruits

Sickle cell disease is an inherited blood disorder that interferes with delivering oxygen to the tissues. A blood stem cell transplant is the only potential cure. NIH investigators want to determine whether a study drug (MGTA-145) combined with another drug (plerixafor) can increase the number of blood stem cells collected in one session from people with SCD. Compensation is provided. Contact the Office of Patient Recruitment at (866) 444-2214 (TTY users dial 711) or ccopr@nih.gov. Refer to study #000766-H. Online https://bit.ly/3EoRoOt.
