Airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR) affects 55%-77% of children with sickle cell disease (SCD) and occurs even in the absence of asthma. While asthma increases SCD morbidity and mortality, the mechanisms underlying the high AHR prevalence in a hemoglobinopathy remain unknown. We hypothesized that placenta growth factor (PlGF), an erythroblast-secreted factor(More)
Pulmonary hypertension (PHT) is associated with high mortality in sickle cell anemia (SCA). Previously, we showed that elevated levels of placenta growth factor (PlGF) in SCA patients correlate with increased levels of the potent vasoconstrictor endothelin-1 (ET-1) and PHT. Moreover, PlGF induced the expression of ET-1 via hypoxia-inducible factor 1α. Here,(More)
