A leader in treating sickle cell
In the 1980s, a patient who already had sickle cell was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). She came to St. Jude and received a bone marrow transplant to cure the AML. To their surprise, the doctors discovered that the transplant cured her sickle cell disease as well.
Today, St. Jude has one of the largest sickle cell programs in the country and continues to make groundbreaking discoveries related to sickle cell disease. During the past 25 years, St. Jude researchers have published several hundred journal articles about sickle cell, and St. Jude is one of the largest publishers of educational literature about the disease.
Thanks to the generous support of caring donors, St. Jude is able to continue to focus on the research that saves the lives of children with cancer, as well as other catastrophic illnesses such as sickle cell.
