I was surprised by the fact that they have not been expanding the cells all along. Offshore clinics do.

Is it possible to get a reaction ( life threatening ) 6 months after an allogenic umbilical cord stem cell (expanded) treatment for Autism/ CP. Any views on this will be welcome.

A child was treated for Autism/ CP 6 months ago with expanded umbilical cord cells overseas. This child developed life threatening condition, was very ill. No cause was found. The only question was that this child had stem cell treatment.There was no illness immediately after treatment with stem cells.Is it possible that the stem cells could have caused this illness after 6 months?

I will submit this question to the Ask the Doctor host for this month.
