Hundreds of clinical trials are rolled out around the world monthly, and many of them are designed to specifically uncover and manage the medical needs of people with sickle cell disease and trait. We keep an updated list of these global studies here, so you don’t have to go searching for them. There might be active study recruitment and enrollment happening at a site near you. Explore the list below to see the different types of studies, and use the navigation options on the left to get as specific as you would like.
The trial of IV arginine therapy in children with Vaso-occlusive painful episodes (VOE) in sickle cell disease (SCD) is designed to further knowledge on efficacy and safety of the therapy.
3 Years - 21 Years
In this prospective, single-arm, open-label, imaging and treatment study, the investigator will test the hypothesis that crizanlizumab will prevent the progression of silent cerebral infarcts in patients with sickle cell disease.
> 16 Years
This clinical trial is a Phase 2/3 study that will evaluate the efficacy and safety of etavopivat and test how well etavopivat works compared to placebo to improve the amount of hemoglobin in the blood and to reduce the number of vaso-occlusive crises (times when the blood vessels become blocked and cause pain).
12 Years - 65 Years
Phase 2/Phase 3
This study measures the effect of exercise on a variety of biomarkers in blood and urine selected to evaluate the physiological pathways of hemolysis, myolysis, thrombosis, inflammation, and renal function in subjects with sickle cell trait.
18 Years - 70 Years
The purpose of this research study is to better understand how blood flow and metabolism change can influence brain development in the early decades of life.
4 Years - 21 Years
The SCD-CARRE trial is a Phase 3, prospective, randomized, multicenter, controlled, parallel two-arm study aimed to determine if automated exchange blood transfusion and standard of care administered to high mortality risk adult SCD patients reduces the total number of episodes of clinical worsening of SCD requiring acute health care encounters (non-elective infusion center/ER/hospital visits) or resulting in death over 12 months as compared with standard of care.
> 18 Years
The goal of the study is to understand how best to help parents of young children with sickle cell disease and their clinicians have a shared discussion about hydroxyurea (one that takes into account medical evidence and parent values and preferences).
1 Month - 5 Years
The goal of this study is to specify the interventions, implementation strategies and control conditions from the Sickle Cell Disease Implementation Consortium (SCDIC) using a mixed-methods approach to study site materials and conduct semi-structured qualitative interviews with site representatives (N=3 per site).
> 18 Years
This study is designed to estimate the efficacy and toxicity of familial HLA mismatched bone marrow transplants in patients with non-malignant disease who are less than 21 years of age and could benefit from the procedure.
1 Day - 21 Years
Phase 1/Phase 2
