Long story short, I had occasion this weekend to mull over my dental implant history. I had a cadaver bone transplant first before I got the dental implant because my bone was destroyed by an infection. Thinking back on the timing, it's about right for when CML must have started.
The other thing that worries me is that I got the transplant right after that scandal about a mortuary illegally selling body parts, some of which were used for cadaver bone, even though they weren't properly treated or certified to be from disease-free individuals. Remember, the guy who used to host movies on a&e or TCM (Alistair Cook?) was one of the "victims" - if a dead person can be a victim, that is. I even asked the oral surgeon if I needed to ask for a provenance of the cadaver bone.
So, that has me wondering if cadaver bone would possibly contain any marrow or stem cells. I tried to google it, but all I get is BMT-related hits.
Well, what do you think? Any chance cadaver bone could transmit leukemic stem cells?
