Here is the story. The link was not working for whatever reason. As always approach these trials with caution but it sounds promising.

IntelliCell Biosciences' Cellular Therapy Treatment Yields Positive Results in Multiple Sclerosis Patients

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Nov 12, 2013) - IntelliCell Biosciences, Inc. (OTCQB: SVFC), a regenerative medicine company utilizing adult autologous vascular cells (SVCs) derived from the blood vessels found in adipose tissue, announced today that it has supplied its cellular product, stromal vascular fraction cells ("SVFC"), to ReGen Medical PC for the successful treatment of a patient with Multiple Sclerosis.

It is important to note that by "successful," the company is declaring that these cells do not cure Multiple Sclerosis, but of the 19 patients with MS that ReGen Medical has treated using IntelliCell's technology, each have gained anywhere from good to significant quality of life improvements.

In almost every case that ReGen treated, as well as in this case, previous medical history stated the patients' Multiple Sclerosis had progressively worsened. In the case of this patient she had undergone seven years of progression since her original diagnosis. This patient was remitted to the care of Dr. Steven Victor of ReGen Medical PC, where the patient received six treatments of ReGen Medical's proprietary SVFC, which includes stem cells, spaced approximately 3-5 months apart. The results of the treatment reflected significant improvements to the patient's quality of living. Prior to any SVFC treatments, the patient experienced a gradual decline, beginning in 2001, of her vision, bladder control, and mobility, particularly of the extremities on her right side. This culminated in her diagnosis of stage IV multiple sclerosis in 2006. Following the first treatment, the patient regained use of her previously immobile right leg, and coupled with more treatments and physical therapy, the patient can now walk. After her second treatment, the patient noticed more strength and agility in her previously clenched right hand. Additionally, with further treatment the patient noted drastically improved vision in her previously debilitated eye and she regained bladder control. With each patient ReGen Medical has treated, the number of treatments has varied between one and six, each patient experiencing different improvements at various intervals.

Dr. Steven Victor, CEO of IntelliCell Biosciences, commented, "The patient mentioned in this release, was the first clinical case we treated for MS with IntelliCell's SVFC technology. If not for our beneficial treatments, this patient would be restricted to a wheelchair and lose total sight in one of her eyes. Previously, this patient had been unsuccessfully treated at some of the most respected Medical Centers in the country and received little or no improvement to her symptoms. By utilizing IntelliCell's paradigm shifting medical solutions, we have dramatically improved the quality of this patient's life. IntelliCell is confident that the future of medicine will entail utilizing cellular therapy for previously unmet clinical needs, and we expect to establish ourselves as a market leader in this emerging industry."

Multiple Sclerosis (MS), also known as disseminated sclerosis or encephalomyelitis disseminata, is an inflammatory disease in which the insulating covers, called myelinsheaths, of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord are damaged. This damage disrupts the ability of parts of the nervous system to communicate, resulting in a wide range of signs and symptoms, including physical, mental, and sometimes psychiatric problems. MS takes several forms, with new symptoms either occurring in isolated attacks (relapsing forms) or building up over time (progressive forms). Between attacks, symptoms may go away completely; however, permanent neurological problems often occur, especially as the disease advances.

About IntelliCell Biosciences

IntelliCell is a pioneering regenerative medicine company focused on the expanding regenerative medical markets using adult autologous stromal vascular fraction cells (SVFCs) derived from the blood vessels in the adult adipose tissue. IntelliCell Biosciences has developed its own patented technology and protocol to separate adult autologous vascular cells from adipose tissue without the use of enzymes. IntelliCell will also be seeking to develop technology-licensing agreements with technology developers, universities, and international business entities.

Adipose tissue contains many types of cells of various therapeutic applications depending upon the disease being treated. Adipose cells are of interest for this, but also for their very low cost of harvest and delivery, which some might try to take advantage of. Studies with adipose derived cells suggest homing characteristics to areas of inflammation where they can release a wide range of trophic signals that influence surrounding tissues, but they have not been as useful for regenerating neurons if used to treat neurodegenerative diseases like MS or ALS. Many claims are being made by medical tour operators about their ability to regenerate nerves and repair the central nervous system using adipose cells. This study put together by Dr. Chris Centeno shows that in real-world clinical trials going on at university hospitals and institutes around the world, cell from an adipose source are generally discarded just because they don’t the ability to significantly affect the disease course of neurodegenerative diseases.

Given the conflicting info. above, it gets confusing. I mean, why did the forementioned MS patient improve, if adipose derived cells are supposed to be barely effective for neurodegenerative diseases?
:confused: :?:
Reachable via PM. Seems I have Higbee's HSII on ThisIsMS. Frustrated by MSers, FMers, Lymers & Prematurely-Aged-By-EMFers who prefer cryptic jargonian Systems Vs. Intuitive empirical experience. Don't simple truths count for anything anymore?
