Sickle cell disease (SCD) is a heterogeneous disorder characterized by several phenotypes, which are defined by shared clinical, laboratory, imaging, and healthcare utilization features. Identifying these phenotypes has the potential to provide insights into disease prognosis and individualized management approaches. Adding to future management approaches are several novel therapies that are currently available or in the late stages of clinical development that will provide additional treatment options. During this recorded educational symposium, experts in the field evaluate the latest advances in treatment options and their benefits to patients, examine the latest understanding of SCD phenotypes and the implications these have for treatment selection, and discuss how emerging treatments may impact the current standards of care.
