Is there a difference with stem cells used in treatment?

Any information on this topic will be greatly appreciated. :D
My mother suffers from MS and is currently about to start a treatment that takes stem cells from her own body. We don't really know much about this but is it the same as those they take from the placenta? I am currently pregnant and am unsure whether I should save the cord blood. And lastly, I've heard a lot about the clinic in Holland that does stem cell treatment, what type of stem cells do they use :?:

Stem Cell Treatment in Rotterdam

You'll find a lot of info here, Drou.

I had treatment there in 2004 and it seemed to help for a while. I'm not doing so well now though but it was worth a try.

Good luck

Hi Drou,

I'd be interested to know the details of this, including how your mother is going.

Thanks
Phil.
