'Radical' stem cell trial offers hope for MS patients

Jason McIntyre's autoimmune system is dead. The rest of him isn't feeling much better. Eleven days ago he underwent an aggressive chemotherapy, not for the sake of killing cancer - but to knock out every skerrick of protection his body has against infection.

I've read some positive articles showing the potential of CBD derived from the Marijuana plant in treating MS. CBD does not produce any psychotropic effects, but may provide some help in dealing with inflammation. Do you know if a CBD product is available and where to purchase it? Dixie Botanicals (http://dixiebotanicals.com/frequently-asked-questions/)
has a Hemp based product that apparently contains CBD, but I don't know if it is in sufficient ...

Stem Cell Treatment Testimonials

Hey all,

I've been exploring various treatment options for ms and recently I stumbled upon stem cell treatment. I watched a lot of testimonials on youtube about miraculous recoveries after the treatment and frankly I cant make up my mind. Are they real? Are they fake? Are they just a few very lucky cases where the treatment really did work wonders? Does it work like that for everyone (I honestly doubt that)? But if there ...

George HSCT risk factors

I was just wondering what your thoughts were on risk factors after hsct such as

When looking to all-cause mortality in a cohort of almost 1500 patients who survived 2 or more years after allo-HSCT, mortality rates remain twice as high as that of the general population among 15-year survivors of allo-HSCT, and that the survivors face challenges affecting their health and well-being. Relapse of primary disease (29%) and chronic GVHD (cGVHD; 22%) were the ...

call it a vent or call it a prayer

...hey, nobody here listens anyway, now or ever, so I may as well vent.

Call it a challenge to God, since i've long since given up on there ever being fair justice in this world anyway. So my fervent vent, is that a strong wind should lift up most of those who profess to be scientists, doctors or physicists, and carry them off to a remote galaxy somewhere, where they can set up shop, using ...
