We are looking for current or former football players (high school, college, and professional) who are sickle cell trait (SCT). While some athlete SC trait carriers have no health problems, others experience crises (and a few have died). In our project we are going to determine if people who have crises have a different gene modifier from those who do not have crises. Our study is being funded by the NCAA and it has been approved by the University of South Florida IRB. We have placed supporting information about the need for this study in a facebook page. Here you will find links to articles written about the study, a memorandum written by the NCAA in support of our project etc: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sickle-cell-trait-carriers/542105535851253. If you are ready to enroll, please visit the study website at: https://www.facebook.com/sicklecell.carriers. The easiest way to reach both sites is by clicking directly on these links (this assumes that you already have a facebook page!).
