Sickle-cell disease[edit]

Hello Joe2003k, thank you for your contributions to sickle-cell disease. You put a lot of work into templating the references etc. I'm just writing to explain why I have temporarily removed your additions. When writing articles on medicine and medical science, we place a lot of emphasis on basing our content on high-quality secondary sources. This has a tendency of making the article more reliable in the long run, and decreases disagreements over the relative merit of individual studies. The policy outlining the sourcing requirements is WP:MEDRS - I urge you to read it closely. Much of what you have written can be sourced to this Lancet review (doi:10.1016/S0140-6736(10)61029-X), which I believe is of high quality.

Your additions are still accessible through the the page history. Please let me know if you need any assistance. I have planned to put some work into the sickle cell article for quite some time (see the list of useful sources on Talk:Sickle-cell disease), and I am very happy to work together with you on this article.
