Sickle cell disease: Thousands to benefit from new life-changing drug treatment

Sky News says a life-changing drug treatment is to be released to thousands of people in England in what has been described as a historic moment for people with sickle cell disease.

The condition – which is particularly common in people with an African or Caribbean background – causes severe pain and organ failure, often requiring hospital admissions.

The new drug, known as crizanlizumab, will be delivered by a transfusion drip and works by binding to a protein in the blood cells to prevent the restriction of blood and oxygen supply.
