GlycoMimetics Honors the Sickle Cell Community

This month, and every month, GlycoMimetics honors those affected by sickle cell disease, their families, and their caregivers. As the discoverers of rivipansel (GMI-1070), an investigational drug which is currently being studied in partnership with Pfizer to treat vaso-occlusive crisis (VOC)—or pain crisis—of sickle cell disease, we recognize the critical need for more treatment options. We thank the sickle cell community for its ongoing commitment to educate and advocate on behalf of those impacted by the disease.
