Stem Cell Therapyadmin
Stem cell therapy has held promising results for patients with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) for three years into the study. A small trial in the US was put intact in order to check the safety and efficacy of stem cell therapy. Those that had already gone through the process had their immune systems wiped out and then filled stem cells. After this process, a majority of participants maintained remission of active MS, and improvements in neurological function. Though, at this point it is still unclear whether this treatment will be for long term.
Multiple Sclerosis is a very common disease, affecting 2.3 million people in the world. It’s of the central nervous system, and is an inflammatory disease. The body’s immune system attacks the protective covering of nerves called myelin. The communication between the cells located in the nervous system is slow. This disrupts the flow of information to and from the brain. Patients commonly experience muscle weakness, pain, blurred vision, and decreased coordination. The majority of people who deal with this disease are diagnosed with a type called relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis. Patients often have attacks when symptoms start. After there will be a period of time when little symptoms are experienced.
