Academic Multicenter Prospective Observational Study of the Factors Responsible for Nephropathy in Patients With Sickle Cell Disease Followed by Belgium and the Nord-Pas -De- Calais Region and Creating a Biobank of Blood and Urine

About the study

The objective of the study is to refine our knowledge on the physiopathology of the symptoms and the complications for the patients affected by a drepanocytic syndrome.

The establishment of risk factors and indicators of severity will allow to target better the patients requiring an adequate strategy in order to prevent the installation of some complications or to limit their worsening.
