    Even before this new Norwegian stuff about B Cells came about, i was wondering whether swapping out your blood for someone elses might make you better.

    I dont know anything about blood transfussions, but my guess would be that you would have to several of them, each time diluting your own 'potentially dodgy' blood further. I guess that a full swap all in one go, isnt even possible...?

    Anyway, i wonder if anyone has had this? - either by election, or consequence.

    Anyone else have any thoughts on this?

    p.s. i just started reading up on blood transfussions on the net and i started to feel sick, so, maybe someone else could investigate if this has been tried before....:thumbsup:

    okay...what about Bone Marrow transplant?

    In thinking about why the drug used in teh Norway study stops working for some people, i am guessing that maybe its because the blood returns to its previous state, because your body produces more blood, from the bone marrow.

    So, i wonder, has anyone with CFS ever had a bone marrow transplant (for whatever unrealated reason) and had any improvement?
