Stem Cell Treatment More Effective In Severe MS

Multiple sclerosis is a type of disease that experts say affects the body’s own immune system. It is characterized by a condition which causes the body’s own immune cells to start attacking the myelin found in nerve cells, the insulation that allows the cells to transmit signals from the central nervous system down to the

Scientists Getting Closer To Cell Therapy For MS

Multiple sclerosis is a disease that currently has no cure. Potential treatments to help manage the disease include stem cell therapy to replace or repair damaged cells. But so far, scientists find it a challenge to produce enough stem cells for treatment in order to help reverse the effects of MS. A recent study shows

Growth Factor In Stem Cells May Spur MS Recovery

Growth Factor In Stem Cells May Spur MS Recovery

Researchers from the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine has discovered that a certain compound that is found in stem cells that promotes growth also seems to trigger the restoration of nerves and their functions in mice models of MS. The findings of the study were published on the online edition of Nature Neuroscience
