Are you using us for some kind of research? I get the feeling that this survey is leading somewhere...what gives Dr. D?
Sickle Cell Warrior and Shukura,

Thank you so much for your responses.
Yes, I am doing research....but my research is personal. It is learning by asking questions. From the two answers, I see the need to talk more (or post a video about bone marrow transplant-see video section Ohene-Frempong) and from the cord blood question, I can write or direct people who want to know to a good review/write up about cord blood in sickle cell disease.
It is not the kind of research you did for your course work. It is not a formal "research". Of course for a formal research, you will need informed consent, research protocol, IRB approval etc etc.
That is it Warrior........we are in the same War! I am on your side in many ways than one!
