L x, this is what I wrote on Feb. the 1st:
This what I wrote someone, only reflecting my humble opinion formed by what I read, experienced and heared from professionals: "SPMS is a turning point where MS turns into a different disease. Chances HSCT will make a difference in a disease with no inflammation are slim. Specifically, HSCT has proven most effective in stopping and to an extent reversing MS for people with active and aggressive MS. If you have active MS and I were you, I would waste no time and do HSCT while bearing in mind there are no guarantees, always hoping for the best and preparing for the worst.
HSCT is thus a means to halt an active disease. Potential reversal of symptoms is a secondary benefit as your nerves are no longer under constant barrage allowing for autonomous recovery. If you want to engage in damage repair Msc's is the best game in town, again no guarantees.
So, the right sequence for you would be first HSCT, followed by Msc's. I any event, always seek treatment from reputable experts. You wouldn't buy a car from a non certified dealer would you? Lo and behold when it comes to treating your MS. Prof. Slavin in Tel Aviv is one of the, if not the best in his field.
