Completed mesenchymal stem cell trial

I just stumbled over a MSC trial that has already been completed (03/2007).
The Bristol, Libanon, Jerusalem trials claimed to be the first in patients with MS. Can anyone see a major difference compared to this trial?

Pubmed results can be found here.

Hadassah uses stem cells for MS, ALS patients

Judy Siegel-Itzkovich , THE JERUSALEM POST Nov. 22, 2007



Neurologists at Jerusalem's Hadassah-University Hospital, Ein Kerem, are the first in the world to help multiple sclerosis (MS) and amyotropic lateral sclerosis (ALS) patients by injecting their spinal columns with large numbers of adult stem cells taken from their bone marrow and multiplied in culture.

The clinical trial, while "encouraging" and "promising," remains highly experimental, as all the ...

Cell transplant hope for blood diseases and Multiple Sclerosis 23 November 2007

Thousands of patients with ailments such as multiple sclerosis and sickle cell disease have been given new hope that cell transplants could offer a more effective way to treat them.

An important step towards the goal of transplanting the parent stem cells that give rise to red blood cells to treat genetic blood diseases, such as sickle cell disease, is reported by an ...

Another stem cell trial

This stem cell trial is a new one to me.



Donor Stem Cell Transplantation for the Treatment of Multiple Sclerosis

This study is currently recruiting participants.
Verified by University of Louisville, July 2007
Phase I / II

Purpose
While the cause of MS in not known, there is an autoimmune component that destroys nerve cells. Autoimmunity is a condition where an individual's immune system attacks his/her own cells. Bone marrow stem cell transplantation has been ...

Non-invasiv method to track stem cell development

Scientists develop non-invasive method to track nerve-cell development in live human brain

A team of scientists including researchers at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) have identified and validated the first biomarker that permits neural stem and progenitor cells (NPCs) to be tracked, non-invasively, in the brains of living human subjects. This important advance could lead to significantly better diagnosis and monitoring of brain tumors and a range of serious neurological and psychiatric disorders. ...

New stem cells by reprogramming

Published: Thursday, 18-Oct-2007
Printer Friendly Email to a Friend




Researchers are discovering new ways to help 'de-program' specialised cells so that they can be re-programmed to form a range of different types of tissue, an international meeting of stem cell biologists was told.
If this approach can be made to succeed, it could circumvent many of the ethical and moral objections that have been raised to using human stem cells derived from embryos - the ...

Bristol / Lebanon

As a positive sort of person (in terms of future prospects for those with MS), I have real hope for the stem cell pilot trial taking place in Bristol, England. Further detail on the pilot trial are attached. Similar trials are taking place around the world. Attached is an article about a trial in Lebanon.
