What are your experiences with Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis?


I was recently diagnosed with Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis. I've learned that it affects 1-200,00 children and only 1 or 2 per 1,000,000 adults. There is no government funding for this disease. It is like "cancer" although cann't be defined as a cancer because there is know definate proven treatment for it.

I have no experience with it, nor had I heard of it until now. Check with a University hospital near you and a University that speciliazes in rare diseases. Usually, there are grant programs available for those who are researching diseases and want to get funding for it-those people will be your cutting edge of technology for your health. Best wishes to you.  (+ info)

Can I donate blood after having Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis?


It's been about 9 months since I finished treatment for this disease. Basically, some of my white blood cells were "hyperactive" and started to attack my own body. I have had no problems since treatment ended, and having type O neg. blood, wish to donate. If I can't donate whole blood, could I still donate my red blood cells?

Should women be circumcised for AIDS prevention?


Langerhans cells are what researchers claim is responsible for increase risk of AIDS transmission. Langerhans cells are present in the male foreskin and female clitoral hood & Labia. This is the reasoning some use to justify male circumcision. How do women feel about being circumcised for AIDS prevention and should it be made mandatory for infant girls?
----------

I think that's fair enough, if they suggest it to men. In fact apparently a study in Africa showed "circumcised" women were less susceptible to some infections I think including HIV. Oh and they think it looks more attractive there too. Sound familiar?  (+ info)
