ASCAT 2023 | Prophylactic antibiotic use prior to dental treatment in SCD patients

Lewis Hsu, MD, PhD, University of Illinois Chicago, Chicago, IL, highlights the lack of evidence for prophylactic antibiotic administration during dental care in patients with sickle cell disease (SCD), but suggests that those SCD patients with comorbidities or those who are immunocompromised likely should be prescribed antibiotics prior to their dental appointments. This interview was held at the 18th Annual Scientific Conference on Sickle Cell and Thalassemia (ASCAT) 2023, held in London, UK.
