Oct 7 - New hope for sickle cell disease as first new drug in 20 years is approved
 

 
Crizanlizumab is the first new therapy for 20 years for serious and lifelong health condition

Thousands of patients in England are to benefit from the first treatment for sickle cell disease in two decades, the NHS has announced.

Crizanlizumab, a “revolutionary” life-changing drug treatment, is delivered by a transfusion drip and works by binding to a protein in the blood cells to prevent the restriction of blood and oxygen supply.

The therapy, the first to become available for the disease in 20 years, will help at least 5,000 people over the next three years, officials said.

Sickle cell disease – particularly common in people with an African or Caribbean background – is a serious and lifelong health condition. It can cause severe pain and organ failure, often requiring hospital admissions.

Current treatments to prevent sickle cell crises include a tablet called hydroxycarbamide and regular blood transfusions, but these are not always effective for people with severe forms of the disease.

“This is a historic moment for people with sickle cell disease who will be given their first new treatment in over two decades,” said Amanda Pritchard, chief executive of NHS England. “This revolutionary treatment will help to save lives, allow patients to have a better quality of life and reduce trips to A&E by almost half.”

People aged over 16 who suffer from multiple sickle cell crises every year will be eligible for the treatment. The disease is characterised by the production of unusually shaped red blood cells, which can cause serious health issues across the body, sending organs into crisis and causing extreme pain.

Sickle shaped cells can stick to blood vessel walls blocking the flow of oxygen to organs, causing excruciating pain episodes

Toks Odesanmi, a sickle cell patient at Cambridge University hospitals trust, welcomed the arrival of the treatment and said it gave her new hope.

“Sickle cell disease has defined me, defined my body and made a big dent to my dreams,” said Odesanmi, 47, a finance specialist from Colchester. “No matter how hard I f*ght, it continues to defeat me. A new treatment brings hope and might make dreaming possible again.”

Sickle Cell Society chair Kye Gbangbola said: “A new treatment brings new hope for people living with sickle cell disorder, the world’s most common genetic blood condition. SCD is a medical emergency, it causes excruciating pain. This new treatment will reduce the number of agonising pain episodes we have to endure.

“The hope is improved quality of life for many living with the condition and their families.”

And secondly is it going to be mandated / forced on all people or by choice for those knowingly with the sickle cell trait?

There's been several different attempts at dealing with sickle cell lately. I think it was the first recognized genetic disease. But several others have been identified later and have greater treatments in less time because those diseases were effecting those of European descent.

It's why it's important people get blood tests before having kids and check to see of they carry the recessive gene. If you do, and the person you decide to have a child with does as well, just know you have a chance of having a child with sickle cell.

This transfusion therapy does sound promising. I'm wondering if they created this using CRISPR

I have never @ you. Just pointing out the obvious hypocrisy. Taking a vaccine in the middle of a pandemic is not pro big pharma, that's just how they control you sheep. Now you big uppin big pharma and don't see the hypocrisy.

You the clown reaching needing to believe anything that was typed stated it was infectious.


Alright should all people who knowingly have sickle cell traits be mandated to take that drug?

And no hospital care for sickle cell complications if they don’t?
