Stem Cell Therapy May Reverse Symptoms of MS

Findings of a preliminary study give hope to people suffering from multiple sclerosis showing that stem cells extracted from these people’s own fat improved their condition, prompting calls for further scientific research to establish the potential benefits of the procedure.

Multiple sclerosis, or MS, is an autoimmune disorder – one in which the body, through its immune system, launches a defensive attack against its own tissues. In the case of MS, the nerve-insulating myelin comes under assault. The degeneration of myelin affects nerves by lessening their ability to conduct signals. These problems in nerve transmission cause complications in movement, sensation, cognition, vision and other functions. MS is also known to cause muscle weakness, severe fatigue, loss of balance and coordination, and depression. The condition has no cure, as current drugs only ease symptoms. Several studies have tried to give answers to what will cure MS, but the latest one seems to offer more hope than ever.

The current research involved three patients with MS. Cells taken from these patients through a procedure called stromal vascular fraction (SVF) were specially treated in the lab and then put back as infusions into the patients’ bloodstream.
