Here are a couple of interesting/promising articles about a new sickle cell drug developed in Nigeria called nicosan (aka niprisan) :-
Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo Launches Xechem's Sickle Cell Drug, NICOSAN(TM), in Nigeria
Demand for New Sickle Cell Drug NICOSAN(TM) Far Exceeds Supply
If these articles are anything to go by then this is a huge breakthough for Nigerian scientists and more importantly for sickle cell sufferers worldwide.
Is this for real or mere hype?
I am curios to know how effective this drug is?
Does anyone have any relevant information from personal experience or hear-say?. I would also be particularly interested in hearing from anyone who may have participated in the clinical trials leading to the NAFDAC approval.
