Abstract

The purpose of the research project is to see if there is a correlation between bone marrow transplants and the development or loss of allergies. The motivation for this project is my dad who received an autologous bone marrow transplant for Multiple Myeloma. He was allergic to bees before the procedure, and about 2 years after the transplant, he was stung by a bee and had no allergic reaction. The plan is to create a survey and send it out into certain Facebook groups such as one called Car-T, which is a study to cure multiple myeloma, as well as Facebook groups for leukemia and lymphoma. The survey will also be given to doctors to give to patients that have received bone marrow transplants. There is no data so far but when the survey is sent out, some will be collected. The goal is to see if there is a correlation between the loss or development of allergies after bone marrow transplants to see if this is a more common occurrence than people know of.
