I don't know the answer to your question but I wanted to welcome you to the forum. I know stem cell transplants are used a lot for cancer patients and I think for some autoimmune diseases, but I've never heard of it being used in cases such as yours. You might check out Fred Hutchinson's cancer center in Seattle. They have pioneered stem cell transplants and are one of the top transplant facilities in the world.
