Future embryonic stem cell treatment promise for MS

Scientists in the University of Connecticut's Technology Incubation Program have identified a novel approach to treating multiple sclerosis (MS) using human embryonic stem cells, offering a promising new therapy for more than 2.3 million people suffering from the debilitating disease.

The researchers demonstrated that the embryonic stem cell therapy significantly reduced MS disease severity in animal models, and offered better treatment results than stem cells derived from human adult bone marrow..... Read More - http://www.ms-uk.org/stemcells

Fasting triggers stem cell regen. of damaged immune system

An article from the University of Southern California:

Fasting triggers stem cell regeneration of damaged, old immune system

https://news.usc.edu/63669/fasting-trig ... ne-system/

The study has major implications for healthier aging, in which immune system decline contributes to increased susceptibility to disease as people age. By outlining how prolonged fasting cycles — periods of no food for two to four days at a time over the course of six months ...

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.....
