Overview

Risk Factors

  • Factors associated with an increased incidence of ACS are:
    • The SS genotype
    • A higher steady-state white blood cell (WBC) count.
    • It seems that smoking status does not influence the incidence of ACS.
    • A higher level of Hb F may protect children younger than 2 years old.
