A cure for sickle cell disease from our own bodies…

We are very proud to announce major progress in the search for a cure for sickle cell disease (SCD), the first genetic disease to be understood and a major disease that kills an estimated half-million people world-wide each year. As high as one in every four black persons in certain parts of Africa carries the […]

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 […]

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 […]

Facts About SICKLE CELL DISEASE (SCD)

In the United States, SCD affects primarily people of African descent. But this pattern of prevalence is changing, with increasing numbers with SCD being found among Hispanics, Native Americans and Caucasians.
