Sickle cell anemia 

Sickle cell disease,is a genetic disorder, wherein heme production is largely affected. Hemoglobin S results from a point mutation in HBB, changing the sixth amino acid in the β-hemoglobin chain from glutamic acid to valine (Glu6Val) causing the red blood cells to sickle (form cresent moon shape). Due to this the life span of sickled RBCs is reduced to 20 days. Our group is utilizing traditional Indian ayurvedic literature and including new technologies available to formulate "nanophytomedicine"  which will help improve the life span of sickled RBCs.
