Scientists have learned a great deal about sickle cell anaemia during the past 30 years - what causes it, how it affects the patient, and how to treat some of its complications. They also have begun to have success in developing drugs that will prevent the symptoms of sickle cell anaemia and procedures that should ultimately provide a possible cure.
Some researchers are focusing on identifying drugs that will increase the level of fetal hemoglobin in the blood. studies have shown that these people have less severe cases of the disease. Fetal hemoglobin seems to prevent
sickling of red cells, and cells containing fetal hemoglobin tend to survive longer in the bloodstream.
Hydroxyurea appears to work primarily by stimulating production of fetal hemoglobin. There is some evidence that administering hydroxyurea with erythropoietin, a genetically engineered hormone that stimulates red cell
production, may make hydroxyurea work more better. This combination approach offers the possibility that lower doses of hydroxyurea can be used to achieve the needed level of fetal haemoglobin to reduce side effects of both toxic drugs to search for safer agents that are just as effective.'Butyrate,- a simple fatty acid tha is widely used as a food additive, is
also being investigated as an agent that may increase fetal hemoglobin production. Clotrimazole, an over-the-counter medication commonly used to treat fungal infections, is under investigation as a treatment to prevent the loss of
