A National Institutes of Health (NIH)-sponsored study called HALT-MS confirms, high-dose immunosuppression followed by autologous stem cell transplantation will prevent MS attacks in patients who are not responding to available treatment options and ultimately protect against the degeneration of nerve fibers.
A recent study conducted by US researchers (on Thursday), help embryonic stem cell to grow critical nervous system cell oligodendrocytes. Scientists believed that in future this new nerve cells generated from embryonic stem cells will be able to repair damaged nerves of multiple sclerosis.
A huge score of U.S. population suffer from the dreaded chronic degenerative disorder named Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Problems in vision and speech, feeling weak in the muscles are its primary symptoms.What happens inside the body? Nothing much, only our central nervous system degenerates slowly due to destruction of myelin in spinal cord and brain.

It is an autoimmune disease that slowly disable human being by causing sever muscle weakness, hence obstructs movement and coordination, it disturbed normal brain functions thus causing vision and speech problems.
On 27th August,2008 Dr. George Daley and Kevin Eggan, scientists of the Harvard University made a breakthrough announcement regarding the creation of stem cells from patients with a variety of diseases. They say that this disease-specific stem cells will reshape medicine, as stem cells will make the cells to grow in the petri dish of the lab which will increase the chance of study of all degenerative diseases.
Opexa Therapeutics, Inc. has announced today the Data Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB) has recommended the trial of Tovaxin to continue unmodified.

New regulations for the use of the DIY kits will be introduced from July 5 this year. The new law aims to curb the use of DIY kits for collecting blood from umbilical cords. According to the rules issued by the Human Tissue Authority, every hospital and clinic will need a license to ensure that the blood is collected by trained staff following correct procedures. Cord blood, rich in stem cell, can be used in various complicated diseases. Cord blood collected from from a baby’s umbilical cord is stored in liquid nitrogen, for future use. But the growth of private banks, which send out DIY collection kits to couples, has worried medical authorities. The Human Tissue Authority has issued the regulation to make sure of the collected samples as well as the proper procedure of collecting cord blood. It makes sure that each clinic employs the right candidate for the task. Source: THE INDEPENDENT
