Discussion of treatments for SCID:

Genes and Disease by the National Center for Biotechnology (Excerpt)

Though invasive, new treatments such as bone marrow and stem-cell transplantation save as many as 80% of SCID patients. (Source: Genes and Disease by the National Center for Biotechnology)

Primary Immune Deficiency, NIAID Fact Sheet: NIAID (Excerpt)

Transplanting bone marrow from a healthy sibling whose tissue type closely matches the patientís is the most effective treatment. If a matched sibling is not available, a donor as closely matched as possible is used. Until the transplant takes effect (in one to three years), intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) is given to normalize antibody levels. SCID patients with ADA deficiency have been treated successfully with enzyme replacement therapy called PEG-ADA. Gene therapy for correction of both forms of SCID is under investigation.
