Discuss stem cells, adult and embryonic, and their therapeutic potential for MS here.

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 ...

Stem cells reprogrammed using chemicals alone

Stem cells reprogrammed using chemicals alone
http://www.nature.com/news/stem-cells-r ... ne-1.13416

Patient-specific cells could be made without genetic manipulation.

David Cyranoski, 18 July 2013

Scientists have demonstrated a new way to reprogram adult tissue to become cells as versatile as embryonic stem cells — without the addition of extra genes that could increase the risk of dangerous mutations or cancer.

Researchers have been striving to achieve this since 2006, when the ...

Master's thesis on stem cell treatments for MS

Hi everyone!
By name is Maria, I'm 28 years old and I have a rapidly progressing form of secondary progress of multiple sclerosis. As a means of maintaining my sanity and continuing my fight, I am working on getting my master's degree in biotechnology.
The theme I chose for my thesis is " stem cells as treatment for MS"
I have been bugging all the neurologists I can find or working in this area to ...

(HSCT) promising as MS Therapy

Autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) promising as MS Therapy

High-dose immunosuppressant therapy and autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) induced durable freedom from relapses and MRI lesions in patients with multiple sclerosis, researchers reported here.

At evaluations performed 1 and 2 years after the procedure, patients showed no gadolinium-enhancing lesions on MRI scans, and only six of the 24 patients receiving the transplants experienced relapses, reported Richard A. Nash, MD, of Colorado Blood Cancer ...

Human Thymus Tissue Grown In Mice

Stem Cell Advance: Human Thymus Tissue Grown In Mice
Functioning human thymus tissue is a significant step toward treating autoimmune disease in humans.
http://www.medicaldaily.com/articles/15 ... isease.htm

Researchers for the first time have grown functioning human thymus tissue from stem cells in the laboratory.

The tissue, grown in mice, may someday offer new treatment options for human patients with type-1 diabetes, as well as other autoimmune and immunodeficiency diseases.

The ...

BEGAN HSCT - 5/13/13

Hello,

I am currently undergoing HSCT in Chicago. I had my first dose of chimo on Monday and was discharged to the local hotel afterwards. Today I started the neuropen shots and the antibiotics. My stem cells will be harvested on Thursday next week.

Here is the thing: My MS has flared up somewhat after the first dose of chimo - stiffer, numbness in hands and right foot. I am told that it's just because ...

HSCT

I have decided to have HSCT procedure. I know it's still experimental but it has good results. I know I could wait sitting on my hands taking useless MS medications and wait miracle cure or I can do something now to help myself. I am hoping to have this done over the summer months and recover all fall and winter back home in Colorado.

Researchers make possible MS treatment breakthrough

A potential new treatment for multiple sclerosis lies within modified adult stem cells, University of Adelaide researchers say.<br><br>

The researchers are embarking on a new project which uses stem cells from fat tissue to send cells with special anti-inflammatory properties directly to the damaged site in the central nervous system............... Read More - http://www.ms-uk.org/index.cfm/stemcells
