Today’s Faces of Sickle Cell Disease: John Tisdale, MD
For many years, John Tisdale has been working on strategies to cure sickle cell disease by replacing the bone marrow cells that give rise to sickled red blood cells with bone marrow cells from a donor who does not have the disease. That transplantation strategy has shown remarkable results in children with the disease. Tisdale developed a modified transplant technique that is chemotherapy free to make it safer and more effective for adults and the technique is beginning to show great promise in patients undergoing this modified procedure.
In August 2017, his research on bone marrow transplantation was featured in “First in Human,” a three-part television documentary produced by the Discovery Channel. It includes a compelling segment about a patient with sickle cell disease who underwent a bone marrow transplant procedure. Tisdale is currently leading a multi-center nationwide study to test the effects of an experimental gene therapy protocol for sickle cell disease.
