Question: Has graft-versus-host disease been able to be reversed? I did a paper in high school about how embryonic stem cell research is pointless because they have no way to administer the treatment to a human without graft versus host setting in WITHOUT immunosupressants. Have there been any recent studies to prove otherwise? Even if it was possible without graft-versus-host disease, what other obstacles would prevent embryonic stem cell research from leading to medical treatments? (apart from the obvious reasons like the catholic church getting their knickers in a twist, and government funding)

Answer: I am on the margins of this stuff and see claims of treatments for gvh disease. I have not heard that it can be reversed or stopped, only treated.
