SICKLE CELL ANEMIA

Those who know me know how passionate I am about sickle cell anemia. I’m extremely bothered about the incidence and prevalence of sickle cell anemia worldwide and in Nigeria especially. I feel helpless and I want to play a part in combating this issue. I just put up a video on my youtube channel https://youtu.be/hF3FT5btybU

For more information please check the description box below the youtube video

Below is a short information about compatibility between partners. (I only included the more common genotypes)

AA + AA = YES

AA + AS = YES

AS + AS = NO

AS + SS = NO

SS + AA = YES

SS + SS = NO

Thank you for reading.

  1. The equations are incomplete. Sickle Cell Aneamia is not as simple as you’ve described with AA, AS & SS…and that’s part of the problem.

    There’s also SC, CC and AC genotypes.
