Stem Cell Transplants, Multiple Sclerosis, and Dr. Shiva Gopal Vasishta

According to the news release ,cell transplants can also induce the remission of multiple sclerosis. This is witnessed from the new clinical trial results that show the progress of patients after HDI (high-dose immunosuppressive) therapy. According to the results of the new trials, five years after the therapy and cell transplant, 69 percent of the patient survived without experiencing disability or new brain lesions. The most important part is that there is no participant who undergone MS medications after the HDIT/HCT treatment. Also, studies show that the currently available MS drugs have the least success rate. The clinical trial of the stem cell transplants and HALT-MS was sponsored by NIAID (National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases), which is the branch of NIH (National Institute of Health). Also, the researchers of these organizations published the three-year results of their studies in 2014.

Besides, the symptoms of MS have a wide variation and sometimes include chronic pain, fatigue, speech difficulties, weakness, and motor. The most common type of MS is the relapsing-remitting MS that is characterized by mild relapses. As time goes by, the ailment continues to worsen and can shift into a progressive disease. In the HALT-MS study, researchers tested for the durability, efficacy, and safety of the HDIT/HCT for 24 volunteers who were of age between 26 and 52. However, these volunteers experienced active inflammation even after taking the clinically available medications.
