Thanks Nanners, I have read about it in Barcelona and other places where people are going into remission and even being cured.

Thank-You so much ivy. I am so thrilled this might be coming our way. I would do it in a second! If I had the money I would go to Barcelona and have it done.

Unfortunately, there have been problems with the Prochymal trial, and there may be delays in further trials / release of the drug. You can find more information by doing a forum search: it has been widely discussed here.

Was it Prochymal you were talking about, and not a stem cell transplant?
