TUESDAY, July 1, 2014 (HealthDay News) — A new bone marrow transplant technique for adults with sickle cell disease may “cure” many patients. And it avoids the toxic effects associated with long-term use of anti-rejection drugs, a new study suggests.
This experimental technique mixes stem cells from a sibling with the patient’s own cells. Of 30 patients treated this way, many stopped using anti-rejection drugs within a year, and avoided serious side effects of transplants — rejection and graft-versus-host disease, in which donor cells attack the recipient cells, the researchers said.
“We can successfully reverse sickle cell disease with a partial bone marrow transplant in very sick adult patients without the need for long-term medications,” said researcher Dr. John Tisdale, a senior investigator at the U.S. National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.

Sickle cell. I’m sick of this cell. This prison like hell. Sick of the sales they sell…of false cures in pill bottles. Start the regimen and more ills follow. Makes you feel hollow.
