Hot Topics – Stem Cell Trial for MS
I was reading this weekend results from a Phase II Clinical Trial regarding Stem Cell Transplantation Effective for Severe Multiple Sclerosis. Many researchers are excited about the potential use of stem cells to repair and/or correct damaged nerves/demyelination.
What leaves me hopeful are the ongoing trials for progressing MS; namely, SPMS (Secondary Progressive MS). I believe researchers are in a race to discover treatments as soon as possible. Afterall, RRMS (Relapsing Remitting MS) treatment options are plentiful (12) – injectables, oral and infusions. The pharma who develops the first treatment for SPMS will be “in the money” so to speak. For MSers, that certainly can be to our advantage.
Advancements, Hope for the future…God remains oh so good!
