But because my aged is 63 years old now he cannot fit me in to his HSCT program. the criteria for his program The patient should be less than 60 years old. so people like me cannot go for this treatment. Same think in australian dr. who done few stemcell treatments. in canberra. his criteria the age limit is under 55years old and maximum 5 years old m.s patients only can fit for the treatment. so we are out of stemcell treatment. you know any one we can try for HSCT treatment.

As an aside, I have an appointment to meet Dr. Burt in chicago on 2-1, and hope it goes well. thanks to asher, packo, and george for turning me on to this idea a year or so ago. I have read everything and am scared and excited to get to talk to him in person about this procedure.

Seems like the non-myeloablative method would be less effective over the long run to me if your immune system is not completely set to a naive state. I suspect that the initial benefits in this method may only be due to a diminished CD4+ T cell population.
