can neglis aplastic anemia be cured?

What is neglis?: Regarding aplastic anemia, yes there are good treatments for it. Standard of care for a young person with severe aplastic anemia and a matched sibling donor is an hematopoietic stem cell transplant. For those without a suitable donor, immune suppression is standard of care. If you can clarify the word "neglis" for us, we are happy to provide additional info. Cheers.
