The new way of combining chemotherapy with stem cell transplantation has prevented brain lesion relapses in over 95 percent of study participants.
.
The results of a phase II clinical trial show that 8 out of the 23 patients who were treated successfully continued to do well 7 ½ years after treatment.
.
No previous treatment has managed to control the progress of multiple sclerosis (MS) to this extent, but researchers warn that the intervention may be too risky for widespread use.
.
. . .
.
Results showed no relapses in the remaining 23 patients over the next 4 to 13 years. No detectable new disease activity appeared on MRI images after the treatment, and only one of the 327 MRI scans taken in the follow-up period showed a new lesion.
.

It sounds risky, alright. Totally killing the immune systems is a very drastic measure!
.
But doesn't a patient and their MD need to factor in the risks of inadequate treatment?
.
Hard to assess something like this, imho.
.
I know of folks with the disease . . . it's no fun.

Maybe if we gave the specialized macrophages and other immune system cells something similar to tag and consume, it would be better. Seems to me if you were to consume a little of the material the myalin sheath is made of, the macrophages would migrate to the intestinal area and chomp on that stuff.

a reply to: BO XIAN Interesting find. I know folks with MS and had worked with a woman that had had it for years...eventually losing feeling in her lower body and not being able to walk or feed herself(a very gentle spirit, RIP).
This is a good breakthrough for those who get an early diagnosis, when their immune system hasn't already declined too far... hopefully they can figure a way to make it more safe and then also financially available.
I believe that with this sort of treatment in the early stages of MS and a specialized healthy diet for MS, one with this disease can live a good and mostly if not completely independent life.
God bless the souls working to better the lives of people suffering of a disease and find a cure through science and medicine.

Sounds like an interesting idea.

Write the researchers!

AMEN! AMEN!

Thanks for your experience based insights.

I agree with you, BTW.

They probably already know that, but that would not be profitable. You'd be surprised if I were to show you all the things that were discovered that they used to use to treat diseases that worked and were abandoned because there was no profit in it. The fifties were a good era for that. It wasn't till the eighties that pharmacology got so corrupted. It has gotten worse and worse since then. Many good medicines bit the dust when the patents expired, they invented new expensive meds that didn't work that great to replace them.

Two computers ago I had a lot of good bookmarks about that stuff, maybe seven years ago is when that harddrive crashed. I used to have so many bookmarks it was impossible to find anything. Pharma companies develop and sell drugs to treat the symptoms of disease. It is not their job to be finding how to prevent disease, their license does not cover that.

TOOOOOOOOOOO TRUE.

SIGH.

e.g. with Dr Rife's frequency machine for killing cancer cells.

In terms of 'they probably already know that' . . . not necessarily. Scientists can be very tunnel visioned, myopic . . . and arrogantly blind.

Thanks for your great insights.

I have M.S... and it totally blows.

I treated my first relapse with western medicines, and I was a wreck. I could barely function. One of the meds they gave me was causing my brain to swell...it nearly killed me.

This relapse is being treated holistically, and I function far better.

The procedure in the OP does look promising... I would wait 5 years to see if there are lawsuits being filed
