If an immune response to factor VIII is such a problem, why are not immunosuppresants used in those cases (I accept that you would not want to use them in the first instance, because they increase the likelihood of disease, and have other side effects; but when the immune response becomes serious, are they then used?).
What about Heart transplants, How successful are they these days? What about anti-rejection drugs.. infection and all that.. what kind of chances does a person have these days during that procedure assuming they were able to find a compatible heart? Have there been implications to memories or weirdness associated here. I know Chris stated that it is rubbish for the most part , but like others I have heard detailed stories and they may be stories but I would like to know ..
