Clinical Trial Finder

Hundreds of clinical trials are rolled out around the world monthly, and many of them are designed to specifically uncover and manage the medical needs of people with sickle cell disease and trait. We keep an updated list of these global studies here, so you don’t have to go searching for them. There might be active study recruitment and enrollment happening at a site near you. Explore the list below to see the different types of studies, and use the navigation options on the left to get as specific as you would like.

An Adaptive, Randomized, Placebo-controlled, Double-blind, Multi-center Study of Oral Etavopivat, a Pyruvate Kinase Activator in Patients With Sickle Cell Disease (HIBISCUS)

This clinical trial is a Phase 2/3 study that will evaluate the efficacy and safety of etavopivat and test how well etavopivat works compared to placebo to improve the amount of hemoglobin in the blood and to reduce the number of vaso-occlusive crises (times when the blood vessels become blocked and cause pain).

Sickle Cell Disease and CardiovAscular Risk – Red Cell Exchange Trial (SCD-CARRE)

The SCD-CARRE trial is a Phase 3, prospective, randomized, multicenter, controlled, parallel two-arm study aimed to determine if automated exchange blood transfusion and standard of care administered to high mortality risk adult SCD patients reduces the total number of episodes of clinical worsening of SCD requiring acute health care encounters (non-elective infusion center/ER/hospital visits) or resulting in death over 12 months as compared with standard of care.
