1831849 tn?1383228392 These efforts involve autologous stem cell transplant.It dawned on them that they were harvesting stem cells from and returning them to the same people. They don't need FDA approval! They are expecting a legal decision by Nov. 15.
Avatar f tn Stem-cell transplants may control and even reverse multiple sclerosis symptoms if done early enough, a small study has suggested. "Not one of 21 adults with relapsing-remitting MS who had stem cells transplanted from their own bone marrow deteriorated over three years." link to article: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/7858559.
Avatar f tn An Australian man appears to have made a remarkable recovery from multiple sclerosis after receiving new stem cell treatment. Ben Leahy, 20, was diagnosed with the disease in 2008 and ended up in intensive care at one point with respiratory failure after his condition deteriorated rapidly. He was in a wheelchair and also had sight problems when he underwent the procedure earlier this year but today he is walking and recovering well.
1831849 tn?1383228392 The study is an open-label, phase I clinical trial designed to evaluate the safety and tolerability of intrathecal administration of autologous mesenchymal stem cell-derived neural progenitor cells (MSC-NP) in patients with progressive multiple sclerosis. Study participants will receive three intrathecal injections of culture-expanded autologous MSC-NPs at three month intervals.
Avatar f tn Zoe, I wonder if that person in Russia (or visiting Russia) had a stem cell transplant. It's the only treatment I'm aware of with any potential to allow a person with MS to start over with a new immune system. Stem cell transplants aren't done routinely to treat MS yet but there have been some done in cases of extreme loss of function and within research protocols. Some results have been quite remarkable.
Avatar m tn Has anybody considered stem cell therapy to repair the damage done to the nervous system/brain? I had my decompression done 3 years ago and have been dealing with insomnia and central sleep apnea ever since. This leads me to believe that my brainstem/nervous system is damaged. Stem cells are obviously the only option to repair the damage... http://www.csfinfo.org/education/physician-information/repair-and-regeneration-central-nervous-system/.
665881 tn?1248926997 ” Wynick then turned to Professor Neil Scolding who studies the use of stem cells in the treatment of multiple sclerosis. Scolding provided human brain tissue affected by multiple sclerosis and, as the team predicted, galanin was also shown to be upregulated in this brain tissue. Professor Scolding said: “The results of this research are very significant and provide new insights into how the disease might be treated”.

Avatar n tn 52 year old woman with a severe case of Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis (SPMS). She is around an 8 on the Expanded Disability Status Scale and has been on multiple interferon-beta1a treatments, including Rebif and Avonex and nothing seems to be helping. What course of treatment would you recommend?

Avatar f tn s) who had some sort of polyneuropathy and he underwent experimental stem cell treatment and has been symptom free for years. His condition before the stem cell treatment was debilitating. He considers himself cured. If anyone wants me to ask him for more information, I'll be happy to to do and think that he will readily share information.
Avatar f tn Your MRI findings need to be investigated for multiple sclerosis. MS is a chronic demyelinating disorder where the disease phase is characterized by active phase and remissions. It has multiple symptoms and signs and is a diagnosis of exclusion. The symptoms of multiple sclerosis are loss of balance, muscle spasms, numbness in any area, problems with walking and coordination, tremors in one or more arms and legs.
335728 tn?1331414412 He flew to China earlier for five stem cell treatments. There, 15 million stem cells were injected into his spine with every treatment. Over the course of 33 days, he also did daily physiotherapy and some acupuncture. Within a few days of Chuckry's arrival, he noticed one significant improvement that he attributed to the stem cell treatment. "All of a sudden, I had a stretch," he recalled, "that was beautiful.
1337734 tn?1336234591 I just cam home from a Stem cell treatment conference. The doctor who spoke discuses the stem cell surgery he performs in NY, LA and Miami. It is FDA approved. MS is one of the conditions he treats. He only uses your own stem cells taken from body fat. He claims positive results. I was very excited by his presentation but my hubby was skeptical.. I was wondering what info people can share with me about this topic.

Avatar n tn Hiya could you tell me if there is a stem cell replacement program that WORKS to greatly improve Diabetic Cystoid Macular Edema.Also Which of the following drugs work the longest would you say as costs are an issue with prolonged treatment. Drugs that have been suggested: Ozurdex , Macugen, Lucentis and Avastin. Thanks.
Avatar m tn I am 43 with multiple sclerosis. I was gearing up for a stem cell transplant in Chicago in 9 months. I stopped Tysabri. (Have to be off Tysabri for 9 months before transplant.) But within 2 months, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. It has almost been 2 years since diagnosis. Oncologist believes cancer is gone and won't come back. (Had double mastectomy and chemo.) At the time of diagnosis, neurologist said I couldn't have a stem cell transplant now. MAYBE.....
961466 tn?1247550382 Not stem cell transplants, but islet cell and pancreatic transplants are being used. You might want to do some further research on this to hear when it is used and how successful it is.
Avatar n tn What is the latest treatment for multiple myeloma? I had a stem cell transplant 13 years ago and am among the longest survivers. MM is not curable, only treatable. I was in a clinical trial, but now am too old for another stem cell transplant. The cancer is not active now, but I have that fear everytime I go in for my 6 month checkup.
Avatar f tn Your neurologist needs to look into these conditions one by one. The other possible cause could be multiple sclerosis and is a diagnosis of exclusion. The symptoms of multiple sclerosis are loss of balance, muscle spasms, numbness in any area, problems with walking and coordination, tremors in one or more arms and legs.
