Cells Deformed by Sickle Cell Anemia

(Original Caption) Berkeley, CA- Both normal red blood cells (center foreground and upper right) and deformed cells can be seen in this sample of blood taken from a person with sickle cell anemia. Scientists at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory at the University of California have found in test tube experiments that treatment of the cells with a chemical compound called an imidoester can inhibit the sickling process.
