Israel Center for MS treatment

Hi I've been hearing that a lot of people with MS have been having treatment in Israel (the same as the one they were having in Holland but with more success). Does anyone have any information about this? (experience, phone numbers, web address, etc)

A landmark discovery by researchers at McMaster University could radically alter the way scientists can use embryonic stem cells to grow replacement tissues and treat cancer.

In a surprise revelation, a McMaster study found that human embryonic stem cells – “the great grandmothers” of all the other cells in our ...

Not MS, but there are so many bone-marrow stem cell treatments in trial (by bona fide clinics) that the turn of MS is coming (there are trials planned / possibly underway in the UK for MS).

Spinal Cord

A company called Geron is getting ready to submit an IND (investingastional, (sp) new drug)in the 4th quarter of '07. This will be the first use of embryonic stem cells in humans. Mice and rats are already walking. How will this effect us? Neurons are being formed and remyelination has occured in animal testing.

To much for me to type, But hope for a cure is getting closer.

If I read correctly, it's not that ...

I like monkeys, but this research looks very interesting and it gives the poor old mice a day off.

Stem cells from skin cells in mice

Just came across this on the yahoo! website. very encouraging even though there are a few big "ifs" still.

By MALCOLM RITTER, AP Science Writer

NEW YORK - In a leap forward for stem cell research, three independent teams of scientists reported Wednesday that they have produced the equivalent of embryonic stem cells in mice without the controversial destruction of embryos.

They got ordinary skin cells to behave like stem cells. If the same could ...

California

They now have the go ahead from the courts, after two years of being held up, to proceed in distributing money for research with stem cells. The Supreme Court chose not to hear the case making it void. This is a huge step and I can only hope other states now follow.

Professor Scolding

Dear all,

Professor Neil Scolding is one of the UK's leading lights in stem cell research for MS (using an individual's own stem cells). There was some talk about him starting some early trials this year and he is being funded by the UK MS Society in this area. Here is an article about his work:
