Amyloidosis is a rare systemic disease caused by deposits of amyloid proteins in one or more organs, causing organ malfunction and failure. The only treatment for this type of amyloid disease involves stem cell transplant after a dose of IV melphalan (chemotherapy) to kill off all the cells in the bone marrow and re-infusion of the stem cells into the blood stream. Treatment is geared to the extension of life, reversal of organ damage and improved quality of life. Chemotherapy and stem cell quarantine is 4 weeks with recovery taking an additional 2 to 3 months.
