There is an active controversy in America concerning stem cell research. Some people think it will bring positive results for MS treatment. Some think it's just wrong.
All we really have is hope. And that hope may have been strengthened.
An MSer in Germany received stem cell treatment in Cologne, Germany, in October. He is reporting slight improvement, especially in his eyesight. Now, it's early; stem cells take time to grow, and this is only one case. The treatment is quite expensive, but does it work?
The MS Society does not yet recommend stem cell treatment, but states there is potentia, with more research, for stem cell therapy to repair MS damage.
That sounds like hope to me.
