|I live in Southern Indiana and had Ecoli 157, now have kidney failure and am on dialysis; and secondary TTP-HUS. I would like any information/connections to other doctors specializing in the TTP-HUS syndrome that I could possibly go to for follow-up. Thank you.

|My youngest son, Blake, has the genetic form of TTP. He received Retuxin during his last visit to Riley Children's Hospital in Indianapolis, IN, and has been in remission for the past 14 months. His latest blood tests show that he is relapsing again. Is there anything known that might help surpress the TTP for a longer period of time?
