Any benefit from Vita-Stem??

I'm interested in purchasing a stem cell supplement for MS.

There are so many choices.

Am I correct in staying away from Bio Stem Plus, Bio-Jett, and Klamath Labs??

I'm considering Vita-Stem by Emergent Health.

Does anyone have any experience with it??

New gene variants may relate to MS susceptibility

Approximately 110 multiple genetic variations were previously identified by genome-wide association studies (GWAS) to be associated with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Now, that number has increased, with more than 159 genetic variants identified, thanks to new research presented by Philip De Jager, M.D., of Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School and the International MS Genetics Consortium at the ACTRIMS-ECTRIMS conference in Boston......

The effects of age on remyelination in MS are reversible

Like conducting an errant orchestra to play together, researchers are guiding processes that go awry in multiple sclerosis to repair themselves.

The conductor walks to the stand and takes his place in front of the orchestra. He raises his baton and, with a dramatic flourish, one hundred individuals come to life. From nowhere, the stillness becomes a beautiful harmony as each member takes their part in a complex symphony.

Consider the workings and structure of ...

Should health charities be more transparent about.....

Should health charities be more transparent about their funding?

Patient groups often shout loudly for access to drugs but are quieter about their links to industry. Sophie Arie and Chris Mahony ask whether this is acceptable given increasing demands for transparency elsewhere in medicine.

The recent decision that the multiple sclerosis drug nabiximols should be available on the NHS in Wales was met by MS charities as a small triumph for patients. Access to the ...

Environmental exposures and the risk of multiple sclerosis

Several environmental exposures, including infection with Epstein-Barr virus, low levels of vitamin D and smoking are established risk factors for multiple sclerosis (MS). Also, high hygienic standard and infection with parasites have been proposed to influence MS risk.

The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of various environmental exposures on MS risk in a Norwegian cohort, focusing on factors during childhood related to the hygiene hypothesis......... Read More - http://www.ms-uk.org/environmentalfactors

Researchgate

Researchgate: it sounds like a Watergate scandal, but it was described to me as "Facebook for scientists"

Accounts are free & scientists put the full text of their research articles on their pages.

http://www.researchgate.net/publication ... CSVI_in_MS

Clicking the above link and choosing "join for free" gets you in, but they want it to be scientists only (sigh) and so you need a department, institution, and institutional email.
