Another bloody stem cell story

What depresses me about the Dutch stem cell treatment fiasco, is not that the treatment didn't work, but that you get to see what this vile disease does to people. My heart goes out to the woman in this story.

I don't think the medical profession should take too much comfort from the demise of ACT. Clearly, what drives sufferers to try such treatments, is that conventional (Western) medical science is taking so long to find successful solutions for MS. Sufferers are not going to 'die wondering'. So a lot of us will continue to search the world for solutions - some good, some bad; expensive and inexpensive ones. If something doesn't work, then we simply move on to the next. I don't think any MSer, even those newly diagnosed, can afford to blindly put all their faith in the medical establishment given it's pitiful track record, to date.
