Boy Dies After Receiving Cord Blood Transplant in Attempt to Cure His HIV
Posted on: July 24 2013, 08:16 am

 Hello   All
Transplant works  but  to me I think the process is the problem ,The 12-year-old boy who had received an umbilical cord blood transplant earlier this year in an attempt to cure him of his HIV and leukemia died from a severe complication on July 5, his doctors announced.

The boy, Eric Blue, received the transplant in late April at the University of Minnesota. He had reportedly been doing well until June, when he developed graft-versus-host disease, a complication in which the donor's immune cells attack the tissues of the host's body.
