Brief Summary:

Background : Sickle cell patients have profound remodeling of their muscle microcirculation networks with signs of amyotrophy. However, the consequences of these muscle alterations on the functional status of muscles are unknown. In addition, whether the poor physical fitness of sickle cell patients can be attributed, at least partly, to an hypothetical muscle dysfunction has never been tested.

Purpose : this study will compare the muscle function of legs between sickle cell patients (SS and SC genotypes) and healthy individuals (AA genotype) before, during and after a short localized muscle endurance exercise.

Abstract : Very recently, a study reported large differences between the muscle microcirculation networks of sickle cell patients compared to healthy individuals with decreased capillary density and higher proportion of large capillaries in the former population. In addition, the same study showed signs of amyotrophy in sickle cell patients. However, the muscle function of sickle cell patients has not been investigated and one may suggest that muscle dysfunction could participate in the decrease of physical fitness, in association with the hematological and hemorheological disorders, already reported in this population. The hypothesis is that muscle fatigue during a short localized muscle endurance exercise should be higher in sickle cell patients compared to healthy individuals, due to a greater recruitment of glycolytic fibers and a faster decrease of muscle oxygenation during exercise.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Maximum isometric muscular strength [ Time Frame: Day 1 ]

    Isometric muscular strength will be determined by Maximum Voluntary Contraction (MVC) test force on dominant leg.

    Muscular function will be evaluated using Maximum Voluntary Contraction (MVC) test force and the muscle endurance ability, which will be highlighted by the degree of decline of MVC after a short localized muscle effort using the formula: ((post MVC force - pre MVC force) / pre MVC force)x100.

    Muscle weakness will be determined by a loss of maximum isometric strength ≥ 20 % compared with control group.



Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Surface Electromyography (EMG) Activity [ Time Frame: Day 1 ]
    Surface EMG signals will be recorded by non-invasive electrodes on the dominant leg.

  2. Muscle oxygenation measurement [ Time Frame: Day 1 ]
    oxyhemoglobin (HbO2) and deoxyhemoglobin (HHb) levels will be measured using Near-Infrared spectroscopy on the dominant leg.

  3. Measurement of six-minute walk distance (6MWD) [ Time Frame: Day 1 ]

    In order to investigate the association between muscle endurance ability and physical fitness in sickle cell patients, patients will realize a six-minute walk test (6MWT).

    6MWD will be measured = the distance that a patient has walked on a flat, hard surface in a period of 6 minutes (6MWT).


  4. Complete Blood Count (CBC) [ Time Frame: Day 1 ]
    CBC will be performed in order to evaluate the role of hematological disorders in the muscle fatigue of sickle cell patients.

  5. Hematocrit [ Time Frame: Day 1 ]
    Hematocrit will be measured in order to evaluate the role of hematological disorders in the muscle fatigue of sickle cell patients.

  6. Blood viscosity [ Time Frame: Day 1 ]
    Blood viscosity will be measured by using viscosimetry, in order to evaluate the role of hemorheological disorders in the muscle fatigue of sickle cell patients.

  7. Red blood cell (RBC) deformability [ Time Frame: Day 1 ]
    RBC deformability will be assessed by using ektacytometry, in order to evaluate the role of hemorheological disorders in the muscle fatigue of sickle cell patients.

  8. Aggregation properties [ Time Frame: Day 1 ]
    Aggregation properties will be assessed by using syllectometry, in order to evaluate the role of hemorheological disorders in the muscle fatigue of sickle cell patients.

  9. Hemoglobin oxygenation level [ Time Frame: Day 1 ]
    Hemoglobin oxygenation level will be measured in order to evaluate the role of hemorheological disorders in the muscle fatigue of sickle cell patients.

  10. Number of vaso-occlusive crises and acute chest syndrome within a 5 years retrospective period. [ Time Frame: Day 1 ]

    Number of vaso-occlusive crises and acute chest syndrome reflects of clinical severity of the sickle cell disease.

    Clinical severity will be retrospectively (5 years) collected in clinical record of sickle cell patients.

    These clinical data will be used to study the relationships between the degree of muscle dysfunction and the degree of clinical severity in sickle cell patients.
