Question: What is sickle cell disease? Answer: It's a hereditary blood disease in which the red blood cells sometimes assume a strange shape — like a sickle. These sickle shaped cells can't float through the body easily, carrying oxygen to all the different organs which in turn cannot function properly. Question: Who is likely to have sickle cell disease? Answer: People whose ancestors came from Africa are more likely to have sickle cell disease. The mild form, sickle cell trait, is likely to be found in one out of every 400. Some Caucasians whose ancestors came from the Mediterranean area, the Middle East, and parts of India may also have either form of the disease. , Question: What does sickle cell trait mean?
