Good Prognosis For Stem Cell Transplant Recipients

  Blood cancer survivors who've had stem cell transplants can look forward to relatively good health in the long term.  Researchers followed stem cell transplant patients for 10 years, and found that in many areas of health, the patients fared virtually the same as other people. They had similar rates of medical visits, hospitalization, blood pressure, even psychological health and marital satisfaction. An estimated 45-thousand people worldwide receive stem cell transplants each year.
