Sickle Cell Disease Survey:

1. Did you have prior knowledge of sickle cell disease and its impact on the affected individual, prior to viewing our sickle cell information?

  • A)Yes
  • B)No

2. Sickle Cell Trait is

  • A) the possession of one gene for thalassemia and one gene for the formation of normal hemoglobin
  • B) the possession of one gene for the formation of sickle hemoglobin and one gene forthe formation of normal hemoglobin
  • C) the possession of two normal sickle genes for hemoglobin
  • D) the possession of one gene for sickle hemoglobin and one gene for some other abnormal hemoglobin
3. Sickle Cell Anemia is
  • A) the possession of two abnormal genes related to hemoglobin formation
  • B) the possession of one sickle gene for hemoglobin formation
  • C) the condition in which there are two genes for sickle hemoglobin formation
  • D)the possession of one abnormal sickle hemoglobin for hemoglobin formation
4. Sickle Cell Disease is
  • A) the possession to two normal genes forhemoglobin formation at least one of which is a gene for sickle hemoglobin
  • B) the possession of two abnormal genes for hemoglobin formation
  • C) the possession of one abnormal gene for hemoglobin formation
  • D) the possession of two abnormal genes, neither of which is a sickle cell gene
5. A Gene is a substance that
  • A) determines the transmission of most human characteristics from parents to children
  • B) is found in the blood and carries oxygen
  • C) is solely responsible for mental capacity
  • D) causes the crippling effects of sickle cell anemia
6. Hemoglobin is a substance
  • A) that is found in the genes of sickle cell genes
  • B) that is found in white cells that carry oxygen
  • C) that determines the transmission of most human characteristics
  • D) found in the red cells that carry oxygen
7. If one parent has the Sickle Cell Trait and the other parent has two genes for formation of normal hemoglobin, what are the possibilities for each pregnancy?
  • A) 50% will get two normal hemoglobin genes, and 50% will get one abnormal hemoglobingene.
  • B) 25% will get two abnormal hemoglobin genes, and 75% will get one abnormal hemoglobin gene.
  • C)50% will get two normal hemoglobin genes, and 50% will get two abnormal hemoglobin genes.
