TRANSPLANT
08.20.11

1 Comment

I have a question, not a comment. I have a frozen stemcell collection that was obtained in January of 2001 ( now nearly 12 years old) at the University of Little Rock, AR. What is the current theory on how long these cells are viable? My local oncologist (in Hershey, PA says they can be safely transported here for transplant. What about thawing dangers? Any help you can give me would be appreciated.

Thank you
