Does stem cell treatment cause tumours?

I live in Cyprus with my mother who has MS (as does her brother) and we've just been told the Institute of Neurology will not go ahead and do the treatment because it causes tumours. Does anyone have any information about this and if it is true? We are not thinking of going to Holland to do the treatment.

Hormones and MS

This is a question for anyone who may know the answer or for anyone who may even want to hazard a guess. Remember the studies where estriol may be of benefit to MS? Well, what do you think about the opposite? What if the body were depleted of estrogen? What do you think would happen to a person's MS? Do you think it would worsen?
