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, "$$$$$$".
The Drug Companies don't want to put any resources behind this, because it cannot be patented or they can't make a buck!
Therefore, we are patiently waiting for the MS Societies of North America (who have A LOT of $$$$) to put resources behind Stem Cell research.
So any new discovery is pretty much useless, until the puppet of the drug companies (i.e. the MS Society) gets off their butts and help us patients.
That's the cold hard truth!!!!
