Major Advance in Understanding Risky but Effective Multiple Sclerosis Treatment

A new study by multiple sclerosis researchers at three Canadian centres addresses why bone marrow transplantation (BMT) has positive results in patients with particularly aggressive forms of MS. The transplantation treatment, which is performed as part of a clinical trial and carries potentially serious risks, virtually stops all new relapsing activity as observed upon clinical examination and brain MRI scans. The study reveals how the ...

Cells Forged from Human Skin Show MS Promise

Cells Forged from Human Skin Show Promise in Treating Multiple Sclerosis

A study out February 7 in the journal Cell Stem Cell shows that human brain cells created by reprogramming skin cells are highly effective in treating myelin disorders, a family of diseases that includes multiple sclerosis and rare childhood disorders called pediatric leukodystrophies.

The study is the first successful attempt to employ human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSC) to produce a population of cells ...

Stem Cell study offers hope to multiple sclerosis patients

Image

Scientists in recent years have found a way to infuse stem cells into the brains of animals to repair damage to the central nervous system, offering some of the most encouraging news yet for multiple sclerosis patients.

Now, a key $12.1 million study soon will be under way in Buffalo and two other upstate medical centers that will for the first time begin to test the procedure in people.

The hope is that the ...

The Real PROBLEM

I have been very fascinated with Stem Cells and their potential to help MS Patients. Thus, I asked my neurologist the following question, "There is so much promise in Stem Cells to help treat MS Patients...so why the long wait?"

His answer, "$$$$$$".

The Drug Companies don't want to put any resources behind this, because it cannot be patented or they can't make a buck!

Therefore, we are patiently waiting for the MS Societies of ...

Brain cells made from urine

Brain cells made from urine
http://www.nature.com/news/brain-cells- ... ne-1.11985

Some of the waste that humans flush away every day could become a powerful source of brain cells to study disease, and may even one day be used in therapies for neurodegenerative diseases. Scientists have found a relatively straightforward way to persuade the cells discarded in human urine to turn into valuable neurons.

The technique, described online in a study in ...
