Multiple Sclerosis Could Be Reversed By Activating Stem Cells

Multiple Sclerosis Could Be Reversed By Activating Stem Cells | Ecological | Scoop.it
Damage caused by multiple sclerosis could be reversed by activating stem cells that can repair injury in the central nervous system, a study has shown.

Via Richard D. Hammer, M.D.
Sam L. Carr's insight:

Stem Cells are making headway in many areas. Unfortunately they are overregulated on the autologous side and under redulated in all other areas and this endangers both safety and the advance of new therapies. There is paranoia from the regulaters and there is the unhealthy but powerful influence of big pharma. Medicaql practitioners and their patients have had their rights to treatments severely curtailed and there is also a legal conunndrum here. See my article: http://bartramia.blogspot.in/2012/12/im-terminal.html
