Second rate of ATG

My 5-1/2 yr. old son was diagnosed with Severe Aplastic Anemia exactly 4 yrs ago – 11/17/1999. He was in remission for almost 4 yrs, and completely without any medication for over 1 yr. Now he relapsed. We just got back from a hospital where Jacob received second rate of ATG treatment. Four years ago he supposed to received BMT when he responded to ATG 3.5 months after getting it and two weeks before scheduled chemotherapy. Back then time was on his side. We were told about all pros and cons of the MUD transplant and we decided not to take that only 50% chance. Now it looks that we are in the same place again.
Does anybody know how succesfull second rate of ATG+cuclosporine+prednisone is? Again, his first response to ATG was very late.
We have to find more information about that so we can make right decision how to help him. If you or someone else have this kind of info, please forward it to me.
