How many patients are on disease modifying treatments for #SCD - data from 2014-2021 presented by Dr. Terri Newman. @ash22 1/n
We're talking about #Hydroxyurea and in 2017, expanded use of #HU as well as L-glutamine and then in 2019 #voxelotor and #crizanlizumab. #ASH22 2/n
They looked at 5022 patients with Rx of DMTs. Those on DMTs were surprisingly mostly in the 18-45 group (the box is wrong on the screenshot) and mostly male and had more VOCs. #ASH22 3/n Image

Management of pregnant women with #SCD in high income countries with Dr. Eugene Oteng-Ntim (with the cutest intro from Dr. Eugenia Asare). Writing down the #pearls here so I can share with my patients for their future and so I can advocate for them. #ASH22 1/n
As we know, more low/not detectable AMH levels in women with #SCD. Know that preimplantation diagnosis and successful transfer is possible with data to support that. And many want #NIPT secondary to fear of amnio or CVS, which can be done. (w/ @Nonacus) #ASH22 2/n
What risks are we talking about in sickle cell disease and pregnancy? 1/4 of the patients in their cohort required transfusion during pregnancy and RR of preeclampsia is 2.43 and 3x risk of SGA, 4x risk of stillbirth. #ASH22 3/n

#Voxelotor #SCD real world outcomes Q&A -- Q: what about concurrent HU vs not? A: we have thatdata, will get to it! 1/n Image
Q: what about stroke? A: it's mostly in pediatrics, and dataset is limited so REALLY important, but not from this data just yet. Here are his conclusions. 2/n Image
Q: improved outcomes here especially with VOC.. can we normalize against # of visits since pandemic may impact this? A: great point! Q: What about decreased ACS? A: No we haven't analyzed ACS but we have to have a # of rates to analyze it. 3/n

Will be jumping around this afternoon -- but starting off with "Hormonal Contraceptive Use and Association with Thromboembolism in Women with Sickle Cell Disease" with Dr. Natasha Bala. I feel like this is gonna be a good one! Tune in below. #ASH22 1/n
Combined OCPs is a category 2 -- meaning the benefit outweighs the risks. Their hypothesis was that risk of thrombosis was higher with combined OCPs versus progesterone only. #ASH22 2/n
They excluded patients without Rx 6 months prior to include new hormonal agent patients only (and excluded ones that had a hx of VTE prior). Their definitions here. #ASH22 3/n

Dr. Alan Anderson here to present #crizanluzumab (which is approved for age >16 to prevent VOE) and its effect on #priapism. Long prescreening to capture these occ events. Needed 4 in prescreening 14 weeks. 1/n #ASH22 Image
24 patients met the eligibility criteria. Received 5 mg/kg and then q4 weeks and checked outcome at week 26 and treated for 52 weeks. Also reported #PRO. #ASH22 2/n
This is the baseline data -- first reported at age 13-17 years, often daily or every other day. If this is surprising to you, think about how you are asking your #SCD pts about #priapism? It has a significant impact on their life! #ASH22 3/n Image

$SGMO status going into C22
Two synthetic gene transfer programs:
- HemA now run by $PFE P3. Hold for protocol amendment. Expect timing update for full analysis in next couple months.
- #Fabry owned program good data potential first/best in class
No further programs.
$SGMO development focus leveraging ZF technology shows evolution from old four platforms to new integrated tech message. ZF tech facilitates both ex vivo and in vivo genomic medicines. Examples are CAR Tregs cell therapy and ZFP-TF CNS regulation.

Cell therapy pipeline:
-Sickle cell collab with $SNY lead indication (see next)
-$GILD collab programs on hold. No update for a while but likely tied to durability issues seen at $ALLO $CRSP $DTIL
-Steadfast study is #POC for CAR Tregs with significant pipeline to follow

Gross incompetence on behalf of BBC?

Bad legal advice?

Surely it wasn't impossible to make full vaccination a condition of employment eg on H&S grounds?

"Strictly chaos as 'third professional dancer refuses vaccine'"… via @MetroUK
@MetroUK who are the three vaccine refuseniks?

If the BBC won't replace them now, the public should know, so we can vote them off ASAP.
@MetroUK is there anything that would prevent it being a condition of employment that Strictly Come Dancing #SCD competitors are fully vaccinated?

When we chartered @theNASEM to provide a #SCD Strategic Plan & Blueprint for Action I hoped for a transformational doc for the next decade–and that is exactly what they provided. Good news– we have already started the journey but we still have a ways to go
Today, @theNASEM released a new report: Addressing Sickle Cell Disease – A strategic Plan and Blueprint for Action.

This report outlines actionable strategies for addressing the care and treatment of people with #SCD.

Read now: Image
This @theNASEM report, charted by OASH & @MinorityHealth, makes recommendations on transitions from pediatric to adult #SCD care, research innovations, particularly gene-editing approaches, & the role of patient groups & community-based orgs.

Our goal at @HHSGov is to lead Americans to healthier lives and to provide a road map to a healthier nation. As such, we are focused on health innovation, transformation, and addressing emerging diseases like #Coronavirus. #AllHealthLive Image
@HHSGov @cspan There is no silver bullet when it comes to addressing the #OpioidEpidemic. All programs and offices must continue to work together across the country, especially as we work to combat the 4th wave of America’s overdose epidemic—methamphetamines. #AllHealthLive Image
@HHSGov @cspan At @HHSGov, we are also committed to extending the lives of Americans with sickle cell disease by at least 10 years, within 10 years. We are dedicated to improving the quality of life of those living with #SCD. Visit @MinorityHealth to learn more:

With @NIH leadership this morning discussing the importance of charting a course to stop the spread of viral #hepatitis and save lives. Image
I made the commitment to settle for no less than a plan that aims to eliminate viral hepatitis in our nation. We have the diagnostic tests, several effective therapies, and vaccines. Let’s make viral #hepatitis something only to read about in history books!
Also discussed a topic very dear to me, Sickle Cell Disease in Sub-Saharan Africa. So much progress has been made but more work needs to be done. We need to partnerships and collaboration to ensure the needs are reflected and adapted at the continent level. #SCD Image

Today I’m in Orlando with @ASH_hematology meeting with Ghana, Uganda and Tanzania on #SickleCell disease. #SCD Image
@ASH_hematology 300,000 children are born with #SCD each year in Africa; most will die unnecessarily before age 5 years. Today, we continue our work to save this children with our partners @ASH_hematology and several African delegations.
@ASH_hematology As we work to improve the care of children with #SCD in Africa, we must re-double our efforts to improve care for SCD patients in our nation. Far too few patients receive standard of care, or appropriate pain prevention and management.

A 32-year-old man with HbS/βThalassemia presented to the ED with weakness in his left arm and slurred speech. His HbS is 71%. Take a look at his peripheral smear below, notice the drepanocytes, or sickle-shaped cells.
Since you are the #BloodBank resident on-call, Heme/Onc requests urgent erythrocytaphereisis, otherwise known as #RedCellExchange. 🗣️You reply?
⚠️Yes! You immediately confirm that the line is placed. According to the ASFA Guidelines, RBC exchange is a Category I Recommendation, first-line therapy, for the acute treatment of a stroke and should be started within 6 hours of admission.

⚡️ #YesCCT Coronary Plaque Assessment #Tweetorial ⚡️

By @CoronaryDoc + @AChoiHeart

✅ Why Plaque Assessment?
✅ High Risk Plaque Features
✅ Plaque Characterization/Quantification
✅ Supporting Clinical Data

#CardioTwitter #ACCImaging #SCCT2019 @heart_scct @journalCCT
As #SCD or #MI is 1st symptom of #atherosclerosis in 2/3 of pts, early ID of #CAD is of paramount importance

#YesCCT allows for
✅ ID of plaque
✅ Quant. of plaque
✅ Characterization of plaque
✅ Arterial remodeling

Lin, @LubbDup & @lesleejshaw:
Serial angiographic studies have demonstrated an accelerated & rapid plaque progression before most cases of ACS

Rapid plaque growth ➡️ plaque rupture ➡️ thrombus formation ➡️ MI

So although I’m watching the #scd final I find my mind wandering and worrying about #Brexit. That’s emblematic of how consuming and perinicious British politics is at the moment. I thought I would blurt out a quick thread on what happens after 29 March. 1/n
First, the one thing we can probably all agree on is that Remainers have spent a lot of time ‘fighting the last war’ so-to-peak. The passionate defence of the EU that should have come in 2016 (and in the decades before, for that matter) only manifested itself after #EUref 2/n
(Aside, one thing I bang on about a lot is that we need to be pre-emptively campaigning to save the UK sign up to the ECHR, before Theresa May or similarly minded PM takes us out of that too) 3/n
