Plan to cure Sickle Cell Disease (updated 2010/12/30)

Plan to Cure or Ameliorate Sickle Cell Disease (SCD), Parkinson’s Disease (PD), and other diseases by Gene Regulation Therapy and Iron Management

Living with Sickle Cell Disease (SCD)

For thousands of Americans, living with sickle cell disease means a lifetime of painful episodes, blood transfusions and frequent trips to the hospital. These treatments can often cause complications that are just as bad or worse than the effects of the disease itself. Sickle cell disease (SCD) is an inherited genetic disorder that affects red […]

J.R. Perry III and his son Jameel

Jameel was born in 1999, and within 2 hours of his birth his father J.R. knew that his son would suffer from sickle cell disease. J.R. has devoted the rest of his life to raising awareness of SCD and the need for a cure. A musician, song-writer, promoter, and talk show host, J.R. Perry has […]

National Sickle Cell Month

The Sickle Cell Cure Foundation, Inc. (SCCF) has made significant progress in recent months, including a U.S. patent issued 14 April 2009, and further laboratory discoveries showing that less DREPAC is needed than previously believed to reverse sickle cell! To keep this progress going, we need your help! It is our goal to have clinical […]

About sickle cell disease…

“Everything we know about genes we learned first about the beta globin gene. Everything we know about molecular disease we first learned about sickle cell disease” Francis Collins, NIH, former Director of the Human Genome Project

Alicia and Dominick Bibbs

Alicia Bibbs, an SCCF founder & research student, is pictured with her brother Dominick who suffers from sickle cell disease and recently recovered from surgery to have his spleen and gall bladder removed.

Our Research

We have named our approach to curing sickle cell disease Gene Regulation Therapy, and the result is called a phenotypic cure. That is to say, no genes are permanently altered; instead, we use normal bodily signals to turn off the sickle cell gene and activate another gene with the same function in its place. We […]
