Future embryonic stem cell treatment promise for MS

Postby MSUK » Thu Jun 19, 2014 2:14 am

Scientists in the University of Connecticut's Technology Incubation Program have identified a novel approach to treating multiple sclerosis (MS) using human embryonic stem cells, offering a promising new therapy for more than 2.3 million people suffering from the debilitating disease.

The researchers demonstrated that the embryonic stem cell therapy significantly reduced MS disease severity in animal models, and offered better treatment results than stem cells derived from human adult bone marrow..... Read More - http://www.ms-uk.org/stemcells

Has anybody here gone through some stems tell transplants? Family friend told us about this place in Panama. The research sounds solid but in the end my dad backed off because the treatment wasn't done in a "hospital" setting. I don't think he realizes that most of my MS procedures have been done in a clinic setting not the hospital. I really would like to undergo the treatment. My son just turned 13 and I would like to be able to make the most of my current life!

Welcome to ThisIsMS. I would recommend watching this 60 Minutes show on stem cell fraud before getting "treatment."

That said, there are a few people have had legitimate stem cell treatments. Here are a couple of threads to read.
