ATG on Dec 2010 but not response yet Please guide all

Hi All,

My 4 years daughter suffering from AA since April 2010. H-ATG treatment on middle of Dec 2010. But still her count is too low. nutrophil is only 2 and Lymphocytes is 93.

Please guide all what should do we have to now? Do we have to try 2nd time H-ATG?

For BMT, my daughter and wife have 6/5 match. Doctor suggesting that. but we are afraid.

When she is diagnosed she fall in non-severe AA, but right she has VSAA.

On first ATG, doctor start Csa from 10th day of ATG with 0.3 ml as her weight is 11kg, after 2 month increase dose 0.6 ml, but due to gum sensitivity decrease dose at 0.5 ml. so late start of Csa , increasing, decreasing dose affect on response? due to this she has not response yet?

Please guide me all. We are from India country, Gujarat state, Ahmedabad city.
