Study ID Alternative Stable ID Type
phs001972 Cohort

Study Description

The Recipient Epidemiology and Donor Evaluation Study (REDS)-III program established a Brazilian Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) Cohort to identify molecular determinants of response to transfusions, alloimmunization and risk factors associated with HIV infection. The Brazil population presents a complex admixture of African, European, Asian and Indigenous heritage and will provide insights into genetic, demographic, social, and healthcare system determinates of SCD outcomes. The REDS-III Brazil SCD cohort began in the Fall of 2013 and aimed to:

  1. Establish a cohort of SCD patients with a comprehensive centralized electronic database of detailed clinical, laboratory and transfusion information, as well as establish a repository of blood samples to support biological studies relevant to SCD pathogenesis and transfusion complications;
  2. Characterize changes in markers of inflammation in response to transfusion by analyzing chemokine/cytokine panels in serial post transfusion specimens;
  3. Identify single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that contribute to the risk of ... (Show More)
