Abstract : Recent findings indicate that the number of newborns with Sickle cell anemia (SCA) will increase on the horizon 2050. Among the concerned countries, Democratic Republic of the Congo will probably still be the country most in need of policies for the prevention and management of SCA. The present fundamental research was carried out with the aim of providing data to help future design and the development of new generation of techniques for the low cost diagnosis of SCA patients from low income countries. The interest in the protein thermal denaturation is due to its potential to easily quantify any change in the hemoglobin stability. The thermal denaturation of hemoglobin in human total blood samples was studied using molecular ultraviolet/visible absorption method. The result expressed as transition temperature (Tt) displayed the best discrimination between AA, AS and SS bloods at pH 7.40 and without ionic strength. Calculated values of Tt according to a non-linear regression analysis using the Gushimana Yav equation (a sigmoid plot) with the help of Microsoft Origin package are 65.2 ± 0.1 °C for AA blood, 61.0 ± 0.1 °C for AS blood and 58.0 ± 0.1 °C for SS blood. By considering Tt as a specific physical parameter, it is thus proposed to design and develop new generation of spectrophotometer for the biological diagnosis of SCA.
