afoiçamento=falciformação=sickling=Formación de célula falciforme

Language variant: célula en forma de hoz

El primer link es de una pregunta anterior parecida, donde se explica que afoiçamento=falciformação=sickling.

Sickling en español se refiere a cuando una célula comienza a adquirir la forma de una hoz.

En el segundo link, si buscas "sickle cell" vas a encontrar "célula falciforme".

Por eso sugiero una traducción como " [...] el fenómeno de la formación de células falciformes en individuos homocigotos"


" [...] el fenómeno de la formación de células en forma de hoz en individuos homocigotos"
Espero que te sirva
