Hi Ved,

John only gets his blood checked once or twice a year now so we don't have a good way to assess the effectiveness of anything on his platelets. He's been in a partial-stable remission for the past 5 years and is 11 years out from treatment. His platelets are stable in the 95-100K range.

In the past, we never found anything specific that would raise any of his counts. We never tried papaya leaf extract though.
