hi everyone
im just wondering if anyone has heard of this being done for sjogrens? (stem cell treatment) i know they have had some good results with those suffering from autoimmune conditions but i cant find much on this one.
better still, does anyone know of a blog or can tell me about someone they knew who had it done? i believe its done in germany on a private basis and is very pricey but has up to a 70% change of improving illness.

My cousin just had it done in NY but it was for Lymphoma, which we are susceptible to. I don't think we can be a candidate unless we get some sort of Lymphoma. He was connected to Sloan Katering Hospital in NYC, but the transplant took place I believe at Columbia or Cornell, which was across the street. He was approved and did receive some sort of coverage.
