Multiple sclerosis: long-term remission following treatment (research study)



In August of last year I reported about a Canadian study showing a case of MS that was reversed with chemotherapy/stem cell treatment. Here is another study using a similar treatment idea that is reporting excellent results 5 years post.

"The team found that almost 80 percent of patients experienced no relapses, worsening of disability, or new brain lesions in the 3 years following treatment.

In the new study, the researchers assessed the same group of patients 5 years after HDIT/HCT. They found that 69 percent of patients had still not experienced relapses, disability progression, or new brain lesions since the treatment."

This study used 24 patients with relapsing-remitting MS. The next step is to confirm the findings in a larger study.
