Dietary cyanate, from foods containing cyanide
derivatives, has been used as a treatment for sickle- cell anemia
In the laboratory, cyanate and thiocyanate irreversibly inhibit sickling of red blood cells drawn from sickle cell anemia patients. However, the cyanate would have to be administered to the patient for a lifetime, as each new red blood cell created must be prevented from sickling.
