My HSCT Six Month Follow up

I am not posting this to start a debate on whether or not people believe this is "the right" thing to do. I am simply stating my results. I researched, discussed and agonized over this decision for a year. I did not jump in blindly, it was a very thought out, personal decision. Trust me. I know the might, should, would, and all; so please don't try and "inform" (or bash) me.

Last October, I ...

Walking mice kick off new area of MS stem cell research

Mice severely disabled by a multiple sclerosis (MS)-like condition could walk less than two weeks following treatment with human stem cells. The finding, which uncovers new avenues for treating MS, will be published online in the journal Stem Cell Reports.

When scientists transplanted human stem cells into MS mice, they predicted the cells would be rejected, much like rejection of an organ transplant.

Expecting no benefit to the mice, they were surprised when the experiment ...

Autologous haematopoietic stem cell transplantation.....

Autologous haematopoietic stem cell transplantation for aggressive MS: the Swedish experience

Abstract

BACKGROUND: Autologous haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is a viable option for treatment of aggressive multiple sclerosis (MS). No randomised controlled trial has been performed, and thus, experiences from systematic and sustained follow-up of treated patients constitute important information about safety and efficacy. In this observational study, we describe the characteristics and outcome of the Swedish patients treated with HSCT for MS..... Read ...

Hsct patients in Ireland

Hi I'm wondering is there anyone out there that could help me with my research. I have ms I'm 25 year old male. They are unsure as to which particular type I have they said PPMS first now they think it's RRMS. I was on copaxone for a short few months as I was not benefiting from it. I have been on LDN since 9 weeks after I was diagnosed. I'm still working full time ...

MS umbilical cord stem cell therapy clinical trial approved

Translational Biosciences, a subsidiary of Medistem Panama, has received the green light for a phase I/II clinical trial using human umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells (UC-MSC) for multiple sclerosis from the Comité Nacional de Bioética de la Investigación (CNEI) Institutional Review Board (IRB) in Panama.....

Dr.Purita - Marrow-HSCs regenerate // Fat-MSCs imunomodulate

Quoting Dr.Purita (Boca Raton), as quoted on AdiStem site:
http://www.adistem.com/news-fat-or-bone ... stemcells/
Bone marrow supplies the much needed hematopoietic stem cells which are the drivers of tissue regeneration, while the fat provides the mesenchymal stem cells which drives immunomodulation which is the step needed before regeneration

So.. it follows that the below process by AdiStem
is incomplete. It requires followup with bone marrow HSCs.

Stem cells created from a drop of blood

Stem cells created from a drop of blood

Date:
March 20, 2014
Source:
A*STAR
Summary:
Scientists have developed a method to generate human induced pluripotent stem cells from a single drop of finger-pricked blood. The method also enables donors to collect their own blood samples, which they can then send to a laboratory for further processing.

Scientists at A*STAR's Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (IMCB) have developed a method to generate human induced pluripotent ...

USF Study Show Stem Cells Could Help Injured Brains

Neuroscientists at the Center of Excellence for Aging and Brain Repair at the University of South Florida have shown that a combination of human umbilical cord cells with the granulocyte stimulating factor reduced the loss of neuronal cells in the hippocampus of animal subjects with brain injuries. The results "may indicate that the stem cells had more widespread biological action than the drug therapy," said lead investigator Paul Sanberg.
