Heme Curation v0.0.1-dev

Mechanistic knowledge surrounding heme



Multiple haemolytic disorders and therapeutic interventions produce substantial intravascular haemolysis. Examples include PNH, SCD, thalassaemias, glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency, hereditary spherocytosis and stomatocytosis, pyruvate kinase deficiency, autoimmune haemolytic anaemia, microangiopathies, acute haemolytic transfusion reactions, mechanical circulatory support [e.g., left ventricular assist device (LVAD)/extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO)], RBC transfusions and infusions of RBC substitutes. These disorders, therapies and procedures are also associated with an increased risk of thrombosis.
