Last Week’s Hot Topic on Multiple Sclerosis


Last week’s hot topic on Multiple Sclerosis was about Some Forms of MS that Might Be Treatable with Hematopoietic Stem Cells written by Alisa Woods.

The article focused on the clinical trials that suggest hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), a common treatment for bone marrow and blood cancers, could also help people with multiple sclerosis (MS). The technique involves harvesting new, undeveloped blood or bone marrow (hematopoietic) cells, typically from the person affected with the disease (autologous).

Thanks to the work of researchers in Australia, it is possible to remove the faulty cells and replace them with new, cancer-free cells.

  1. Stacey Dematos says:

    I had a stem cell transplant in March 2014 for my autoimmune disease, CIDP, much like MS. I am now in remission and no longer on any treatments or medications and since I had it early enough in my disease, I had some reversal of symptoms. I’m living a healthy and normal life again and am so grateful for the opportunity to have HSCT.

    Dr Burt treated my MS in 2013 using HSCT. Since then, I have been off all DMDs and have recovered a significant amount of the function I lost due to MS. HSCT is the real deal
