According to data presented tonight at the American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting and Exposition by Corinna Schultz, MD, Department of Pediatrics, Sidney Kimmel Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University, Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, Nemours Children's Health, Primary Care Physicians (PCPs) recognized the importance of discussing the presence of sickle cell trait (SCT) with patient caregivers. However, their overall confidence to speak about this varied and the likelihood that they would do so declined with the age of their patients. Schultz explained that this study followed up on a previous one done on the information that's gathered from newborn screening, a test done of every baby born in the US which includes detecting sickle cell disease (SCD), as well as sickle cell trait.
