Dr. Susan :

Hi, I can help you with your question today.

Dr. Susan :

I have heard of dogs with T cell lymphoma receiving BM transplants. I'm not sure if it is a viable idea for B cell lymphoma.

Dr. Susan :

I can give you contact information for the experts in this arena.

Dr. Susan :

Dr. Steven Suter at North Carolina State University has been performing transplants for the last 6 years.

Dr. Susan :

Here is his contact info: (###) ###-####/p>

Dr. Susan :

Best of luck with your boy. We don't have a lot of information about response to treatment, but one study showed a median survival time of 240 days after transplant, and 2 dogs were still alive at 740 days transplant.

Customer:

We had hoped for a longer survival rate !!!
