Poor little rat

Adult stem cell research advances 16 March 2006

A laboratory rat unable to use its right front paw because of a spinal cord injury struggles to walk across a rope, loses its footing and falls.
Then a rat that had the same injury scurries across the rope without a problem, just weeks after an injection containing adult stem cells from a human nose that were transformed into nerve cells.

The rats are part of a ...

Not really sure what this treatment is and it sounds expensive (but worth it if it worked)

Stem Cell Chat Session

Hi All
I am putting together a "chat" session in the Multiple Sclerosis Resource Centre Chat Room for those who have had SCT and those going to have it so that people attempting to have it can chat to those who have already been through "the mill" so to speak.

And another story

The clinic in Holland must be turning customers away. A consultant neuro in the UK probably earns £100,000. Sacking a few would help fund treatments for MS patients. It's a sad state of affairs when the medical profession can do nothing to help someone so young in such a dreadful situation.

Another stem cell story

Not a day goes by in the UK press without an 'MS sufferer / stem cell treatment in Holland story'. Here's another. The view of the UK neuro profession seems to be that this treatment is a waste of time (and money). But in most case they don't have anything else to offer their patients.
