Sickle Cell Disease

At Nemours, we promise to do whatever it takes to treat children as we would our own. When your child comes to Nemours, we know you’re placing your trust in us. This trust and our dedication to improving the health of your child is what inspires us to provide exceptional care and the most satisfying experience possible.

See What We're Doing for Sickle Cell Disease Research

Nemours takes great pride in research — so that we can better serve children with sickle cell disease today and in the future.

Nemours often offers clinical trials related to sickle cell disease. A clinical trial is a study that evaluates new medicines, new devices, new treatments, or new applications for old treatments.

Clinical trials are safe and supervised by a qualified physician, under strict guidance of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Patient safety is extremely important to the FDA, to those conducting the studies, and to everyone at Nemours. In a clinical trial, children participating in the study are monitored closely — and families may refuse any aspect of the study treatment or completely discontinue their child’s participation in the clinical trial at any time.
