Adult Stem Cells Offer Relief from Multiple Sclerosis

Good News: Adult Stem Cells Offer Relief from Multiple Sclerosis

A surprise breakthrough in adult stem-cell research means some people with multiple sclerosis are finding relief.

Researchers at the University of Ottawa simply were trying to boost the immune systems of MS patients with bone marrow stem-cell transplants. What they ended up with was a remarkable remission of the disease. Not one patient has had a relapse in nearly seven years.

I think this is just another brick on the pile of adult stem-cell (successes) and their ability to effectively treat disease in human patients," said Dr. David Prentice, senior fellow for life sciences at the Family Research Council. Its about time, frankly, that people woke up to the fact that adult stem cells are the ones that hold real promise to treat patients.
