Thank you .
There are two fundamentally different approaches to stem cell medical treatments. One is stem cell "infusion," and the other is stem cell "transplantation."
There has yet been absolutely no scientifically reproducble benefit shown for stem cell infusions. So it is unlikely you will find an infusion therapy that will have a long-term beneficial effect on your MS. At best it's probably just a complete waste of money. At worst, injecting foreign stem cells (such as embryonic stem cells) into your body is possibly dangerous, maybe even causing cancer. It's currently extremely experimental and nothing is yet shown to work in a scientific way.
However, Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (HSCT using your own stem cells) is a well-developed legitimate medical treatment for MS (and other hematologically-rooted autoimmune diseases) that has excellent repeatably-demonstrated curative benefit for MS patients. Especially for RRMS patients such as yourself are very likely to experience good-to-excellent benefit from this treatment.

Onto your question. . . . I am aware of Dr. Amit Rauthan in Bangalore that will perform HSCT for MS patients. (I think you could negotiate a price discount because you are in India.) You can read about Dr. Rauthan's contact info on this page:http://themscure.blogspot.com/2011/06/g ... -have.html
