    MS in the news

    In a recent published in the journal Stem Cell Reports a study from Utah suggests that mice with an MS like condition experienced at least a partial reversal of their MS like paralysis. Within 2 weeks of stem cell treatment, the mice were walking.

    The methodology for the stem cells grown for use were different than previous stem cell therapies. It is important that MSers realize that the test was quite specific and the stem cell growing technique is new. The scientists are still trying to ascertain which proteins were likely responsible for the partial success. It should also be noted that this is NOT A CURE.

    Lastly, as this treatment is new and it is still at the animal testing phase, this news will not effect change for MSers for some time. Still, it is important, I think, for those who are unable to walk due to MS that help is on the horizon and that they have something to ask their doctors at the next visit.

    We are in it to win it!
