Amazing.

Are you from Italy?

For an international patient, how much would it cost and what is the best way of communication other than phone?

Is there any medical insurance that covers this?

That is great news!

Fahed, reduced intensity chemo is exactly what is sounds like. The chemotherapy regimen used before the transplant can be a reduced dose or involve different chemo agents. It causes lessened side effects to the patient.

All we are saying is give thals a chance.

Thanks Andy,

Is it advised to conduct Reduced Intensity Chemo BMT in Thailand, specifically Bumrungrad hospital?

I can't answer questions about specific hospitals. It is up to the parents to investigate the success rates of the BMT procedures at various hospitals.

Just an update for people thinking of haplo BMT. My son had his almost 3 years ago now with no GVHD.It was with reduced intensity conditioning and from his brother who was 50% match. He is 11.5 years old now and in the 7th grade at school. He was recently seen by an endocrinologist and all seems well
 Had started making testosterone so seems like he will go through puberty normally. Height and weight also in normal range.
May God bless all of our children with happy, healthy futures

Our son also received BMT from Aga Khan University Hospital Karachi, Pakistan and unfortunately it was unsuccessful. It is so pleasing to know that your kid is now free from Thalassemia. Can you kindly advise us the doctor who supervised the BMT for your kid. Was it conducted under direct supervision of Dr Sodani? Thanks and regards..
