Are there any treatments for sickle cell disease?

Currently, Hydroxyurea is the only medication available to persons with sickle cell disease that can improve overall outcomes and prolong life. The only available cure for sickle cell disease is bone marrow transplant. However, not all persons with sickle cell disease are able to undergo bone marrow transplant. You should contact your physician to see if you are eligible for this procedure.
