Growing evidence suggests that physiological responses during exercise in sickle cell trait (SCT) carriers might differ from persons with normal haemoglobin. Epidemiological and experimental results support the view that SCT carriers could be advantaged in certain anaerobic activities, but the underlying physiological and bio-cellular mechanisms remain unknown. Maximal aerobic physical fitness (i.e. maximal oxygen consumption and maximal aerobic power) is not affected by SCT; however, recent… Expand
Lactate Removal Ability and VO 2 . Recovery Kinetics in Sickle Cell Trait Carriers Compared with Normal Haemoglobin Subjects: Preliminary Data
TLDR
The ability to recover or to remove lactate after a short supramaximal exercise does appear unaltered by sickle cell trait, and the presence of clinical sign should justify to prolong recovery or to stop exercise in AS. Expand
Exercise limitation, exercise testing and exercise recommendations in sickle cell anemia.
TLDR
Patients with sickle cell anemia are advised to start exercise slowly and progressively, to maintain adequate hydration during and after exercise, to avoid cold exposure or sudden change in temperature, and to avoid sports associated with mechanical trauma. Expand
Skeletal muscle structural and energetic characteristics in subjects with sickle cell trait, alpha-thalassemia, or dual hemoglobinopathy.
TLDR
These findings support most of the previous observations in SCT, such as similar maximal power output and associated maximal oxygen consumption (VO2max) values and 2) lower exercise performances during prolonged submaximal exercise. Expand
Moderate endurance exercise is not a risk for rhabdomyolysis or renal failure in sickle cell trait carriers.
TLDR
The results of the present study suggest that moderate submaximal exercise is not unsafe from a biochemical point of view for sportsmen carrying SCT. Expand
Stiffening of sickle cell trait red blood cells under simulated strenuous exercise conditions
TLDR
It is confirmed that the stiffening of SCT RBCs occurs at a low pH and implies that S CT RBC stiffening could be responsible for vaso-occlusion in SCT athletes during strenuous exercise. Expand
Effects of hydration and dehydration on blood rheology in sickle cell trait carriers during exercise.
TLDR
This study compared the hemorheological responses of a group of sickle cell trait (SCT) carriers with those of a control group in response to 40 min of submaximal exercise performed in two conditions: one with water offered ad libitum, and one without water, i.e., the dehydration (Dehyd) condition.

TLDR
The epidemiology, genetics, and clinical studies of sicklecell trait are discussed; the implications of current policies regarding sickle cell trait screening and interventions for the student athlete are reviewed; and additional areas where more information is needed are examined. Expand
A medical consideration for sickle cell trait carriers in sports: example of Guadeloupe
TLDR
Although numerous studies have demonstrated that SCTc can safely perform athletic activities and even reach very high levels in sports requiring anaerobic metabolism, they may have lower aerobic physical fitness than similar subjects with normal hemoglobin, thus causing the dramatic scenario of exercise-related sudden death. Expand
Role of Exercise-Induced Oxidative Stress in Sickle Cell Trait and Disease
TLDR
The purpose of this review is to summarize the role of oxidative stress in sickle cell disease and the effects of acute and chronic exercise on the pro-oxidant/antioxidant balance in Sickle cell trait and sicklecell disease. Expand
Effects of regular physical activity on skeletal muscle structural, energetic, and microvascular properties in carriers of sickle cell trait.
TLDR
Carriers of SCT adapted almost similarly to CON to regular physical activity for most of the studied muscle characteristics, oxidative potential remains altered in physically active carriers of S CT compared with HbAA counterparts, and the specific remodeling of muscle microvascular network persists in the trained state.

Lactate exchange and removal abilities in sickle cell trait carriers during and after incremental exercise.
TLDR
The present results do not warrant drawing a definite conclusion on impairment of the ability to exchange lactate in the presence of SCT, however, SCT carriers are likely to produce more lactate than control subjects reaching exhaustion at similar mean absolute work rate during exhaustive incremental bicycle exercise. Expand
Anaerobic exercise components during the force-velocity test in sickle cell trait.
TLDR
The present study indicated that sedentary subjects with SCT and controls with normal Hb had similar anaerobic exercise performance and similar an aerobic exercise metabolism, but did not confirm the hypothetical higher anaerilic metabolism suggested in subjects withSCT. Expand
Lactate distribution in the blood compartments of sickle cell trait carriers during incremental exercise and recovery.
TLDR
Lactate distribution in the blood compartments did not differ between the two groups and this finding suggests that lactate production and/or clearance is quite similar during exercise in AS and AA. Expand
Lactic Response in Sickle Cell Trait Carriers in Comparison With Subjects With Normal Hemoglobin
TLDR
It is concluded that the lower lactic response exhibited by subjects with sickle cell trait during incremental exercise was the result of an adaptive process in red blood cells in relation to either lower lactate production or greater lactate uptake capability than in individuals with normal hemoglobin. Expand
Oxygen uptake kinetics during heavy submaximal exercise: Effect of sickle cell trait with or without alpha-thalassemia.
TLDR
It is suggested that SCT and SCTAT subjects are not limited during the first exercise minutes, but are prone to exercise intolerance and to lower aerobic capacity thereafter, due to a higher VO2 slow component, and that alpha-thalassemia does not improve exercise response. Expand
Nocturnal autonomic nervous system activity impairment in sickle cell trait carriers
TLDR
An additional global decrease and imbalance of autonomic nervous system activity to biological disorders of SCT carriers, that may constitute further risk factors for cardiac complications in this population of subjects are suggested. Expand
Faster lactate transport across red blood cell membrane in sickle cell trait carriers
The physical and physiological behavior of sickle cell trait carriers (AS) is somewhat equivocal under strenuous conditions, although this genetic abnormality is generally considered to be a benignExpand
Does Repeated and Heavy Exercise Impair Blood Rheology in Carriers of Sickle Cell Trait?
TLDR
The hemorheologic changes induced by exercise in the SCT carriers could trigger microcirculatory disorders during the recovery of sickle cell trait carriers. Expand
Effect of different modalities of exercise and recovery on exercise performance in subjects with sickle cell trait.
The sickle cell trait (HbAS) does not seem to affect exercise performance. It remains unclear, however, whether the capability to sustain repeated brief maximal effort and recovery by HbAS subjects,Expand
Patterns of exercise-related inflammatory response in sickle cell trait carriers
TLDR
Although the data do not indicate an extended exercise inflammatory response in SCT carriers, a specific activation of the L- and P-selectins was observed and is considered an indication of a protective mechanism mediated by the shedding process of adhesion molecules. Expand
