Actually the BMT stats for AA seem to be lower than most other stats. I think it’s because most who have BMT’s have already failed ATG and have had multiply transfusions, both effect the BMT success outcome. The best outcomes are those who have had no previous treatments or transfusions. I had a friend who had a BMT for SAA 2 years ago, (she did have full-body irradiation) she was given a 30% survival, today she is "cured" and doing amazingly well. She had well over 200 transfusions and 2 rounds of ATG.
