Dear Sickle Cell Warriors and Allies,

Whether you are a Sickle Cell Warrior, caregiver, community outreach member, or healthcare provider—Agios Pharmaceuticals hopes you were empowered and energized by this year’s Foundation for Sickle Cell Disease Research (FSCDR) conference.

As a reminder, Agios has recently launched the RISE UP clinical trial.

This phase 2/3, double-blind, placebo-controlled study is open to patients with sickle cell disease, ages 16 and older. Please consider learning more about this trial and sharing information about RISE UP with others in the #SickleCellWarrior community.

The initial 3-month study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of mitapivat in challenging sickle cell pain crises and anemia.
