They plan to recruit around five patients who will be treated with their own blood stem cells following treatment with Granulocyte Colony Stimulating Factor. The stem cells will be collected from the circulating blood and injected into the affected area. Participants will be assessed for the formation of new lymphatic vessels, and for complications.
