    Another similar procedure to stem cell transplants is Platelet Rich Plasma infusions - potentially it woould be great for us as it re-builds collagen

    Has anyone heard anything about them for ME/EDS?

    I see stem cell transplants are being used for cosmetic facial and general rejuvenation as well as treatment for baldness and other things apparently (I think this is good as it feeds data into research for us) as well as Parkys, MS and several other diseases including cancer and leukemia.

    It is now done as a day procedure; they suck fat from your abdomen with liposuction, filter out the stem cells (which are abundant in your abdo fat) and then infuse them back into your veins via a central line. I have seen on e case where it worked well for MS. it is said to give a 50 percent improvement in some of us with ME.

    here is one link; there are man yother sites now on the web

    Someone with ME on the Not Crazy site has had them done and is reporting about it there
