I have a friend whose son, aged 5 years, is diagnosed B thalassemia major since birth.
The Doctors in Bahrain, at that time, informed him that since there is no HLA doner a bone marrow transplant is not an option.
His son has been receiving blood transfusion twice a month. Now he has a baby gril, aged 10 months.
Kindly let me know if the bone marrow transplant is possible now and what will be the procedure for that.
Further, i would like to know the risk involved for the girl as being a donor to her brother at this SMALL age.
Look forward to your feedback. Any questions, please let me know.
