A doctor in Russia is trying HSCT for dry eyes. No reports have been published on this yet but it is known that Dry Eye is a potential side effect of HSCT. The idea is that chemotherapy is used to destroy a patient’s immune cells and HSCT is used to reboot the immune system. This seems risky to me as we have seen at least 10 patients who have lost meibomian glands from pure chemo treatments (without radiation).
Has anyone out there tried HSCT for dry eyes?
