You're right. I previously looked into X-Cell in Germany and found that they perform stem cell "infusions" or intrathecal injections into the spinal collumn. But with no chemotherapy there is no cure because it does nothing to correct the defective autoreactivity of one's own existing immune cells. X-Cell looks like a well run company, but the treatment-as-a-cure is a sham (just as all similar facilities around the world are) with absolutely no verifiable clinical benefit.
However, hematopoietic stem cell transplantation together with bone marrow ablation (chemotherapy) has been clinically demonstrated to be effective as an MS treatment (and is just now finishing phase II clinical trials here in the US). I had this procedure performed one year ago and it completely stopped my MS disease (absolutely no further disease progression). And in fact I have been experiencing continual slow reversal (improvement) of all of my pre-existing residual symptoms.
