VOL 11 NO 8 • NOV/DEC 2020

This issue’s cover illustration depicts hemoglobin S polymerization. A genetic mutation causes the production of hemoglobin S. When deoxygenated, hemoglobin S has the ability to polymerize into rigid rods that reshape the erythrocyte. The sickle-shaped erythrocyte is much less flexibile, which leads to hemolysis, increased viscosity, and acute vaso-occlusive episodes.
