Active Clinical Trials at Children's Hospital
Sickle Cell Disease Study
The Clinical Trials Center at Children’s Hospital is participating in The Hibiscus Study™. This trial is evaluating the safety and effectiveness of an investigational medication compared with placebo (inactive drug) in people 12 to 65 years of age with sickle cell disease. The study is evaluating if the investigational medication, etavopivat, can improve anemia and reduce the number of pain crises per year.
