142. New Hope For People With Sickle Cell Anemia (FDA Consumer Reprint)
A recent clinical trial found that the drug Hydrea (hydroxyurea) significantlyreduced painful episodes in adults with a severe form of sickle cell anemia.
This article originally appeared in the May 1996 FDA Consumer and contains revisions made in December 1997 and February 1999. The article is no longer being updated.
New Hope for People with Sickle Cell Anemia
by Eleanor Mayfield In tropical regions of the world where the parasite-borne disease malaria is prevalent, people with a single copy of a particular genetic mutation have a survival advantage. Over time, people from these regions have migrated, had children, and in some cases married each other. Some of their children inherit two copies of the mutation. While inheriting one copy of the mutation confers a benefit, inheriting two copies is a tragedy. Children born with two copies of the genetic mutation have sickle cell anemia, a painful disease that affects the red blood cells and is curable only in rare instances. In February 1998, the Food and Drug Administration approved the drug Droxia (hydroxyurea) for reducing painful episodes in adults with a severe form of sickle cell anemia. The drug doesn't cure the disease. Hydroxyurea also is approved under the name Hydrea for treating certain cancers. Genetic Defect Changes Cell Shape The genetic defect that causes sickle cell anemia affects hemoglobin, a component of red blood cells. Hemoglobin's job is to carry oxygen to all the cells and tissues of the body. Red blood cells that contain normal hemoglobin (such as the one pictured top right) are soft and round. Their soft texture enables them to squeeze through the body's small blood vessels.

Anemia in the Cat
What does it mean to be anemic? Anemia is a reduced number of red blood cells or hemoglobin or both. It is not a specific disease but the result of some disease process. How is anemia diagnosed? The most easily observed sign of anemia is a loss of the normal pink color of the gingiva (gums). Anemic cats also have little stamina so they seem very listless or tired. Pale gingiva and lethargy make us want to perform some tests on blood to document anemia. There are several tests that are performed on the red blood cells. The most common test for anemia is the

Devastation of sickle cell disease chronicled
Film documentary scheduled February 28
February 22, 2001 Web posted at: 10:11 a.m. EST (1511 GMT) In this story: Asking questions Treatments studied RELATED STORIES, SITES By Michele Dula Baum Health Writer ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) - Although research continues, sickle cell anemia remains an "orphan disease" attracting little notice despite its harvest of pain and early death. But a new film documentary may help to educate viewers about the disease, which affects about 80,000 people in the United States and millions worldwide. Called "Sickle Cell: The Forgotten Disease," the film will air at 10 p.m. EST on the Discovery Health Channel. It is being co-produced by the Dr. Spock Company. "It's hard to get funding or people interested in trials," said Dr. James Eckman, director of the Georgia Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center at Grady Health System. "But because this is a lifelong, chronic problem, it has a greater impact." CONDITION CLINIC Sickle Cell disease A genetic disorder, sickle cell disease attacks red blood cells, making them rigid and distorting their normally round shape into crescents and points. These misshapen cells can easily clog tiny blood vessels and deprive organs and tissues of vital oxygen, causing intractable pain crises. In addition, children with sickle cell are more prone to stroke, pneumonia, infection and other long-term complications.

Home l Services l Support Search ...

Anemia Anemia is defined as lowering of red blood cells and disruption of their most important function carrying oxygen. In cancer patients, it may be mild to severe and may be attributable to a variety of causes. Severity of anemia may increase as the disease progresses. Causes: Reduced production of blood from bone marrow, which is normally due to suppression of bone marrow by the cancer. Some cancers produce substances with a direct negative impact on the bone marrow; other cancers can spread and occupy the bone marrow space and interfere with blood production. In most instances, treatment of cancer also harms the bone marrow. Chemotherapy and Radiation therapy may both cause anemia. Bleeding may occur in cancer patients and result in anemia. Blood loss could be directly from the cancer site, as in colon cancer where bleeding occurs inside the large bowel. It may also be due to other causes. Cancer treatment can cause lowering of platelets which can make patients prone to bleeding. Most common sites for this kind of bleeding are the stomach and bowels, under the skin, gums, in the urine, etc.

Welcome to the: "Fanconi Anemia Web" WEB SITE
Fanconi Anemia is a rare and terminal genetic childhood disease that results in death due to Bone marrow failure. See Tucker's "Tucker Time!" photo page My baby boy Tucker's fatal Fanconi Anemia diagnosis totally devastated and encompassed my life with despair...Never have I experienced such a profound weeping of my soul... The only way I Knew that I was going to be able to break the paralyzing depression I was in, was to try to turn my despair into Hope . By devoting myself to "Taking Action" And doing all I can to offer help and resources to others dealing with this heartbreaking disease, and to provide up to date access to medical documentation for Doctors, researchers, medical students and anyone seeking knowlege on this very rare genetic childhood disease. I pray there is a "Miracle" behind the tragedy of this disease...for it is well documented that researchers world wide are learning more and more that equal to the extreme rareness of Fanconi Anemia is counter matched by concentrated properties and similarities that with continued research could unveil a cure for cancer and Leukemia as well. That truly would be a breakthrough for all mankind not just the rare several thousand Fanconi Anemia cases reported globally. The urgency of continued research is also why I created this Web Site to generate a comradery of Fundraising efforts, volunteers and contributions to The Fanconi Anemia Research Fund. I also donate 20% of my web site design fee to the Research Fund as well at my other site:

about Henry!

Publish Date June 30, 2001
Read Allen's Letters to Henry
Henry Strongin Goldberg was born on October 25, 1995. Henry knows all there is to know about Pokémon, believes that Disney World is the best place on earth, plays soccer, worships superheroes and wrestles with his younger brother Jack way past bedtime. Everything he does makes his parents smile. In these and so many other ways, Henry is a lot like other boys his age. But this lover of life and everything Batman is different from other kids because Henry has a horrible disease that threatens his life. After a scary and difficult five years of endless waiting rooms, doctor's visits, blood tests, EKG's, bone marrow aspirations, IV's, surgeries, transfusions, drugs, scars and a bone marrow transplant in July 2000 that met with innumerable complications, Henry faces a very uncertain future. This web site is dedicated to helping people learn more about what a special and brave young man Henry is and to educate everyone about the disease he is fighting, Fanconi anemia (FA). Through raising awareness and money for research and encouraging people to register to be a bone marrow donor, our family strives to give Hope for Henry and other children suffering from this killer. We welcome you to the site and encourage you to tell others about it and to bookmark this page so you can keep abreast of Henry's progress.

Diamond-Blackfan Anemia (DBA)
DBA patients have only low red cell counts ( anemia ). The rest of their blood cells (the platelets and the white cells ) are normal. ~25% of DBA patients have physical abnormalities, often involving malformations of the thumbs. Most patients are diagnosed within the first year of life. Detecting a mutation in the one known DBA gene confirms the diagnosis. However, failure to find a mutation in this DBA gene does not eliminate the diagnosis of DBA. This is because the one gene which has been identified so far explains only ~25% of the disease occurrences. A second gene has been located but not yet identified, and there appears to be at least a third gene, not yet discovered, which can cause DBA. Currently, DBA is diagnosed by clinical findings after exclusion of other known causes of pure red cell anemia . Males and females are affected equally.

    What is Fanconi Anaemia ?
    Fanconi Anaemia is a rare disorder found in children that involves the blood and bone marrow. The symptoms include severe aplastic anemia , hypoplasia of the bone marrow, and patchy discoloration of the skin. This is an autosomal recessive condition, affected children usually develop severe aplastic anemia by age 8 to 9 years. Treatment usually consists of bone marrow transplant. Fanconi Anaemia is not a cancer, though recent research has shown an association between Fanconi Anaemia and leukaemia. There are 8 types of Fanconi Anaemia; known as complementation groups A through to H. Some definitions:
    below normal levels of erythrocytes (red blood cells)
    Aplastic anemia
    anemia that is resistant to treatment; often accompanied by deficiencies of other blood cells.
    incomplete / under development of a part of the body.
    deficiency of all types of blood cells.
    (genetics) if the required allele (a type of gene) is not present in both members of a pair of chromosomes then that allele is not expressed.

      Coping with another chronic disease, such as arthritis, kidney disease, liver disease or chronic infections
      Infiltration of bone marrow with cancer
    complete blood count hematocrit , and the hemoglobin count. A major reduction in any of these measures will indicate anemia is present.
