Chimmerism and CD3
It's been a while since I posted something but was hoping someone could shed some light. I was my brothers donor (haplo) in January this year, he was diagnosed with acute undifferentiated Lukemia which we've been told was very rare... so far everything seems to be going well, he 's caught a few virus' and has had mild GVHD of the mouth and skin but he's managing... or so he says - my brother has never been a big communicator!
Anyway I'll get to the point. we've recieved his letter from his consultant that says his chimmerism 100% his blood is 100% mine and his CD3 cells are 100% mine... he's been off immunosupressents for 10 days now, am I right in thinking that the CD3 cells should start getting progressively lower as he builds his own immunity?
sorry for the long winded msg.
