Here, in Canada, it is done as part of some studies (same as in the states) but they use a lot of chemotherapy before they give you back your stem cells. Dr. Freedman, in Ottawa, has done this procedure in the past. Unfortunately, a man died and Dr. Freedman stopped doing the procedure (part of a study, for the sickest and the ones most resistant to treatment ). In Germany, they do not wipe out your immune system before giving you back your stem cells. So, I will try it... more to come. à
Mark's friend on another site, is doing quite well after going to Israel for a similar procedure.
I just said 'if it comes in 5 years ' speaking of the procedure to come here simply because Barrack Obama seems to be interested in stem cell research. I do not want to wait that long.
take care all, Carole
PS, thanks for the wishes
