LentiGlobin, an innovative gene therapy, introduces a modified beta-globin gene that yields an anti-sickling hemoglobin variant. It boosts total hemoglobin levels, mitigates hemolysis, curtails inflammation, and addresses iron overload by reducing transfusion requirements. These changes, in turn, provide insights into disease mechanisms and treatment outcomes. Alterations in serum markers, such as hemoglobin levels and inflammatory biomarkers, can illuminate the therapeutic effectiveness of LentiGlobin and its impact on mitigating complications such as vaso-occlusive crises. Therefore, the purpose of this narrative review is to discuss the effects of LentiGlobin administration on diverse serum biomarkers and its correlation with vaso-occlusive crises in individuals with sickle cell disease (SCD).
