Comments: SNP associated with a significant change in HbF levels after 2 years of hydroxyurea (HU) treatment in African Americans with sickle cell disease (SCD) acquired from the Sickle Cell Pulmonary Hypertension Screening Study (n=32). SNP did not associate with baseline HbF in SCD patients from Cameroon, without any HU treatment (n=484).
