Sickle cell disease (SCD) is a haematological disease that affects multiple organs, thus eliciting episodes of chronic pain, acute anaemia and infection, due to a single nucleotide mutation in the β-globin gene, which results in the substitution of a glutamic acid residue in place of valine on the β-globin chain of the resultant haemoglobin protein molecule, the sickle haemoglobin (HbS).
