All You Need To Know Eating raw or undercooked shellfish, Linus Pauling and colleagues were the first, in 1949, to demonstrate that sickle-cell diseaseoccurs as a result of an abnormality in the hemoglobin molecule. Cause & EffectBiggest risk groups Complications include anemia, jaundice, and gallstones. Blood flow problems can cause lung damage, pain in the arms, legs, chest, and abdomen, and stroke. Organs can bedamaged by poor blood flow as well, and include the spleen, kidneys, and liver leavingyoung children highly vulnerable to bacterial infections. The discovery of Sickle Cell was the first time agenetic disease was linked to a mutation of aspecific protein, a milestone in the history ofmolecular biology. All persons.Persons with underlyingmedical conditions, especially liver disease, may be at increased risk of infection and serious complications. More than 200 patients with sickle cell diseasehave undergone stem cell transplants from amatched sibling donor. Stem cell transplanthas a 5%-10% risk of death, but patients withsuccessful transplants were completely curedof sickle cell disease, with no further episodesof pain. In 1973, the average life span was 14, but people with sickle cell disease nowlive into their 40s and 50s, and in somecases, beyond the age of 60. What is this bacteria? It normally lives in warm seawater and is part of a group of vibrios that are called "halophilic" because they require salt.
