Shell, I too am happy for Matt. I am just curious.
Again your article refers to the 2009 study. Matt is saying his was done ten years ago. He is one of the pioneers. I would enjoy reading about it. Surely it was well written and documented being one of the first...and successful.
If he doesnt care to share, fine. I just think it odd that I can find nothing from that University from ten years ago on this...
Suma - Stem cell transplant is definitely not a secret. Nor are the doctors who perform it.
There are 113 pubmed articles listed here on this link alone:
Thank god for the scientists and doctors who perform it, and for the patients who have benefited from it. I couldn't be happier for you, Matt - you survived it, and got your life back.
How about sharing those articles with us. I can't imagine a University that was successful ten years ago keeping it quite. It would have been a feather in their cap and U's love those..
I haven't kept anything secret!? What an odd thing to say. In fact, the hospital had me on the news out there twice. I guess a little more research is in order on your end there!
Time to spill (what you can). I can't keep all that down and dirty info to myself forever :)!
All - Matt was absolutely a trailblazer with the transplant.
Opps..I see this is an old thread...Dang, I hate that...Still Matt the U kept a good secret!
Matt, you must have been a trailblazer. In Feb of '09 was the first the University let the world know...
I told you Matt that this has been on my radar LOL
Hey there Lulu! That's where I had my stem cell transplant, 10 years ago!!!
Wouldn't it be great to really know about all the research being looked at for MS? I think we only see the tip of the iceberg out here in the public.
What a great story, thanks for sharing! There is so much going on in MS research to be hopeful about.
I laughed when the young guy being interviewed said " "This is a disease 40-year-old white women get and I'm like 'I'm an 18-year-old black male. Somebody didn't get the memo.'"
