UK Stem Cell Clinical Trial for MS

Postby vw35qrt » Sat Dec 22, 2012 2:12 pm

I heard there is a clinical trial taking place primarily in the UK testing stem cells to treat MS. I believe around 150 patients are enrolled across Europe. I'm curious how that is coming along and if there has been any early information released regarding its effectiveness?

Hi vw,

Have you checked the threads in the Stem Cell forum here at ThisIsMS? Here's a link to that forum:

stem-cells-f25/
Dx'd with MS & HNPP (hereditary peripheral neuropathy) 7/03 but must have had MS for 30 yrs before that. I've never taken meds for MS except 1 yr experiment on LDN. (I found diet, exercise, sleep, humor, music help me the most.)

You could also check out the following link to Frenchay Hospital in Bristol - http://www.brams.org.uk/index.html as they are leading some trials I believe.

the article I read regarding Stem Cell trials in the UK to treat MS is listed below. After reviewing the article, if you stumble on additional information on the trials let me know.
