And another story

The clinic in Holland must be turning customers away. A consultant neuro in the UK probably earns £100,000. Sacking a few would help fund treatments for MS patients. It's a sad state of affairs when the medical profession can do nothing to help someone so young in such a dreadful situation.

Another stem cell story

Not a day goes by in the UK press without an 'MS sufferer / stem cell treatment in Holland story'. Here's another. The view of the UK neuro profession seems to be that this treatment is a waste of time (and money). But in most case they don't have anything else to offer their patients.

neural precursor cells

Israeli scientists have injected neural precursor cells into the brains of mice with EAE with some success. One of the authors was Ben-Hur - good to see that he does more than race chariots against the Romans. ... d_neu.html

From memory this drug is in human trials but they are still testing it on mice, with the usual good results.

Patent for MS Diagnosis
