Amos Igwe freed from SCD by sister’s bone marrow

Before getting a bone-marrow transplant from his sister in 2006 through an NSCF-supported clinical trial, Amos Igwe was often so sick that he had difficulty breathing and could barely leave the living room couch. Amos was treated as part of a study that aims to make bone-marrow transplants safe enough to be used widely and possible beyond the small portion of patients with perfectly matched donors.

To date, Amos is effectively cured of SCD.
