The New Jersey Legislature is considering creating a confidential registry of newborns diagnosed with sickle cell trait. Assemblyman Herb Conaway said many people with sickle cell disease are not getting standard treatments for that condition.
Conaway said individuals with sickle cell trait could pass the gene onto their children and put them at risk for sickle cell disease that causes severe anemia, chronic pain, and other health complications. He said the registry would help with family planning decisions.
Assemblyman Benjie Wimberly said increasing the number of people who know whether they are carriers of that trait can potentially decrease the prevalence of sickle cell disease.
