Hi everybody.

Has anyone here heard of or tried an autologous stem cell transplant?

Hey Sebas

I've heard of stem cell/ms discussions, but unfortunately never really investigated. This is an interesting topic that i'm planning to look at today. Maybe some help here for ms patients? I'll post back later if i learn anything helpful.

I liostened to a talk about stem cells last night on Health@healthtal,com it was really interesting I think you can go on and listen to what was said last night very promising
I've been diagnosed with MS for two years started out on copaxone for two years but I continued to get lesions so doctor switched me to rebiff Ive been on it now for a month.  My husband Mark is great with me he stretches my legs every night and we go for walks everyday he knows when I'm tired and tells me to go as far as I can.

Hi everybody,

Thanks for your prompt reply. I found the second link very interesting. I've researched a lot on stem cells and find it to be very promising, only I haven't heard many personal stories from people who have undergone this treatment. Personally, I'm more interested in SCT for Parkinsons, but through my research I've learned that an autologous SCT can be used for MS and thought I'd just pass it along.. Anyhow, I thank you all for your help and I'll check back regurlarly to see how the discussion is going.

Thanks Karen, I'm listening to the Healthtalk webcast now.
