Hi again Brad...No sweat with the questions. If I can help I am glad to do so.
You are correct in that I underwent non-myeloblative autologus HSCT in Tel Aviv. It was performed under the supervision of Prof. Shimon Slavin at CTCI. And yes again due to the gentler non-myeloblative nature of the procedure my recovery is speedier and I will not need reimmunization in the future. The protocol is not the same as used by Dr. Burt at Northwestern and is specialized for individual patients, not cookie cutter across the board as in Chicago.
As for my specifics, I am 45, was diagnosed PPMS in 2007 and my self assesed EDSS at treatment about a 5. I continue to be very optomistic of a positive outcome after treatment and I remain very glad I undertook the rigorous mental, physical and financial burdens of the journey to Israel.
Hope this helps...HUD
