Can A New Bone Marrow Transplant Technique Cure Sickle Cell?
A new bone marrow transplant may help cure sickle cell disease, says a new study. This experimental procedure, which mixes stem cells from a sibling and a parent, reversed the disease in 26 out of 30 patients. Also, afterwards patients can skip taking meds aimed at helping them not reject the bone marrow, which means no toxic side effects.
