Abstract

Hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) is curative therapy for sickle cell anemia (SCA). However, its widespread use is constrained by donor availability and by concerns about its short-term and long-term toxicities. Current efforts to identify suitable candidates for HCT to decrease the toxicity of HCT, and to broaden its availability are discussed.
