Partnership with Thalassemia Patients and Friends forum to moderate an area on BMT

We are glad and honored to announce a great partnership with the Thalassemia Patients and Friends forum,the most important online forum for the thalassemia community worldwide,with more than 3,000 active members and 41,000 posts.

Dr. Pietro Sodani (scientific coordinator) and Eugenio La Mesa (chairman),the 2 Cure Thalassemia co-founders,will answer questions and moderate the new area of the forum entirely dedicated to Bone Marrow Transplant(BMT) and Cord Blood Transplant(CBT) both from matched and mismatched donor.

We thank Andy Battaglia, the admin of the forum,for this exciting opportunity to let us give our help and support to families and patients all over the world;we will give as many reliable information as possible on how to be cured from thalassemia,with no more transfusions.

“I find this to be an exciting cooperative effort and am greatly pleased to have an ally in Cure Thalassemia”,says Andy Battaglia.

This is the welcome message of Andy to introduce us to the members of the forum.

  • Eugenio,

    Thank you for this opportunity to help more thalassemics to be cured. At thalpal we will continue to do our part to direct people to these committed doctors,so that their questions can be answered and so that they can make informed decisions about their future and the future of their children. At thapal,we welcome this collaborative effort and look forward to a relationship with Cure Thalassemia that will always put the patients first. I look forward to the expansion of your efforts in India and elsewhere,as the need is great and resources have been too few. We can change the world.

      Dear Sir,

      In BMT from Haploidentical mother,have you observed any difference in results among Class 1,Class 2 and Class 3 patients. Is the success rate different among the three classes of patients.

      Regards,
      Himanshu

      • Eugenio La Mesa

        Dear sir,

        Dr. Sodani says that in class 3 haploidentical transplant is full of risk,it is not right therapeutic optnion.
        In class 1 and class2 the difference in term of survival it is not so relevant.

        Regards,

        Hi,

        as you can read in our FAQ,you can find a donor a in a bone marrow donor bank or you can use the mother as donor,even if she is not a match.

  • Sir,

    I have a sister who’s suffering such blood disorder…She’s in Taiwan right now and she’s diagnosed with thalassemia major last week and she’s experiencing am abnormal hair loss now. She told me there are times (mostly) that she cannot breathe freely and that she loses consciousness. She’s being out of balance most of the times. I knew what this is a blood disorder for people with Mediterranean blood but we are Asian (or so we thought). I don’t know what to do. We don’t have a mother and our dad is sick. I am the breadwinner and I can’t finance her BMT although I am not sure if I can be her bone marrow donor because I am not that healthy.

  • Rizalene Ragpa

    Good day Sir Eugenio,

    I have a 2 years old son that undergoes blood transfusion every 5 top 6 weeks. He is also taking ferriprox oral every day due to iron overload. His pedia also a hematologist told us that he has thalassemia. I know that BMT is very expensive,Is there a possibility of any group or organization that can help us financially? I’m from the Philippines,Dumaguete City. Thank you and God Bless.

  • Eugenio La Mesa

    Good day Rizalene Ragpa,

    we live in Italy and I’m not aware of any organization in your country who can give financial help for the BMT. Try to contact local charities in your city.

    I’m sorry but I don’t know who we can help you.

    Warm Regards,
    Eugenio La Mesa
