 en Mathematical Modeling of Sickle Cell Anaemia in Nigeria with Cartesian Product of Sets and Relations
Tsok, S.H.; Meshelia, I.B. & Datiri, R.D.

Abstract

Sickle cell disease (SCD) is the commonest monogenetic disease worldwide and its greatest burden found in Sub-Saharan Africa especially Nigeria. Genotype test before contracting marriages has become very imperative because of the danger it poses on the couples, the offspring and in fact the society at large. This work used Cartesian product of sets and relations on sets, to explain how sickle cell anaemia can easily be spread fast, if measures are not taken. Finally we gave suggestions on how to overcome the menace.

Keywords
