HiCy and Mesenchymal Stem Cells?

Anybody know if HiCy treatment wipes out your Mesenchymal stem cells?

Seems it would be nice to be able to follow HiCy with Mesenchymal stem cell therapy using your own cells (maybe in Israel).

If HiCy wipes out the Mesenchymal stem cells, maybe it would be a good idea to stockpile some Mesenchymal stem cells before HiCy treatment.

I should add: I am not a Doctor (you probably guessed that). I just Google and read. ...

HiCy Success Stories

I am having trouble tracking down the long term success stories of HiCy.
Most of the HiCy participant blogs only go for a year and then stop.

Maybe people would like to use this thread to share any HiCy success stories they know about?

Thanks,

Tysabri and Revimmune?

Anyone have any insight on using Tysabri to bridge the gap until being able to get Revimmune treatment? Know of any problems going from Tysabri to Revimmune?

I think I read that prior chemotherapy was a PML risk for Tysabri. Any ideas on whether that means that taking a chance on Revimmune closes the door to Tysabri in the future?

Thanks.

What tests prior?

Hi everyone!
It looks as if I am accepted by Rush, for a mid january start.

I have 2 questions actually.

First is what insurance covers without a fight? We are in open enrollment right now.

And, what tests are done prior to starting? I want to know what may potentially kick me out. I'm jsu about to turn 54 (next week!) and I have some minor health issues that I hope aren't too big ...

starting this week, few questions...

Hi everyone,

I am starting therapy in the coming weeks and had a few simple questions about the therapy. I understand that my 'infusions' will take place over a 7-8 day period during which I will be an inpatient at the hospital... how is the drug administered? Obviously intervenously, but central line pick or large arm vein? Also, in the late 80's patients where catheterized to ensure that their bladders were completed void of urine ...
