(7) found that, radiological thymic enlargement were correlated with SS disease duration and thymic enlargement more common in patients with short disease duration ([less than or equal to]5 years or >5 years; p=0.007).
It is more likely that elderly patients have more SS disease duration and risk of infectious lung diseases than younger ones.
The characteristics of Hb SS disease observed in this study did not differ significantly from those of other series studied elsewhere, the haematological indices and clinical manifestations of sickle cell disease (SCD) patients in Nigeria were detected by Nduka et al, [11] whom they were investigated in a combined group of male and female Nigerians, and the results were matched against those from non-SCD individuals.
In hemoglobin SS disease, increased albuminuria occurred in 68% of adult patients, and macroalbuminuria occurred in 26%.
The complexities of the miRNA network pathways, as well as the multiple targets of each miRNA, hinder the delineation of their role in SS disease phenomena.
We report cases of five adult patients with sickle cell SS disease who have chronic bone damage and require chronic opiate therapy for pain management.
Hb SC disease is the least severe of the hemoglobinopathies, and patients generally have less morbidity and mortality than do patients with homozygous Hb SS disease (sickle cell anemia).
Many of the effects of Hb SC disease are similar to those of Hb SS disease. Sickled red blood cells develop as a consequence of low oxygen tension, which leads to vaso-occlusion and subsequent ischemic tissue damage in almost all organs of the body.
