PS – as for failed treatments. I had used steroid for a very short while then about 7 mos of IVIG by the time of my evaluation. Dr. Allen – the neurologist offered me some other treatment options but did confirm my CIDP. However, your illness must be “refactory” (non or inadequete response to the treatment)

Too much is still unknown about this rare disease & it can go into remission or possibly be induced into remission. ongoing treatments generally manage the symtoms. The idea behind the SCT process is that it will fight the root cause.
