Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
I am sorry about his polycythemia vera
stem cell therapy has not advanced far enough at this point to help patients like your husband.
some large academic centers are treating with bone marrow transplantation for polycythemia vera
but how old is your husband.
if he is older, he may be able to tolerate a bone marrow transplant.
