Stem Cell Treatment Shows Progress in Reversing MS

Researchers in India have used an autologous stem cell treatment in a pilot pre-clinical study to completely reverse the adverse effects of a quickly progressing case of MS (multiple sclerosis). MS is an autoimmune disorder in which the body attacks its own nervous system by breaking down the myelin sheath on neurons. Proper myelination is responsible for faster transmission of nerve signals and aggressive forms of MS cause patients to lose motor functions in their limbs, as well as experience memory and cognition problems. The patient in this study was experiencing a particularly degenerative form of MS, with multiple relapses over the years, and he began losing his ability to walk. After receiving an injection of his own mesenchymal stem cells (the same type of stem cells found in teeth), as well as a monitored diet and physical therapy, the patient experienced immediate improvement. He was soon able to walk and even run again, which he had been unable to do for over five years.

Though the patient still needs to be monitored in the following months to prevent any negative side effects, but Dr. Lipi Singh, head of the research at Advancells (which is conducting this study), stated “… the drastic changes in symptoms clearly are an indication of the fact that the treatment is working and could become a hope for millions of patients across the world who are suffering from this disease.”

Advancells’ innovative research demonstrates the integral role stem cells are playing in cutting edge medical care options. By banking their own valuable stem cells, families can ensure that they will have access to these emerging therapies soon.
