New Treatment For Multiple Sclerosis

An extreme New Treatment For Multiple Sclerosis has been shown to stop the disease in its tracks hinting at the possibility of a cure.In a 24 person clinical trial based in the Canada one person who was previously confined to a wheelchair was able to live a normal life again after receiving the treatment.But there is a catch the treatment is so severe it caused one fatality so the team behind it is now working on refine the drugs and procedures involved to the make them safe for all Multiple Sclerosis sufferers.

The new Treatment For Multiple Sclerosis was actually discovered by the accident by a team at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute in Canada through their work with the patients diagnosed with both leukemia and multiple sclerosis.One way of the tackling the cancer is by extracting bone marrow cells killing off the remaining immune cells then injecting the bone marrow (once purged of cancer) back into the body to repopulate the immune system.It turns out this immune system ‘reboot’ is also very effective at fighting MS.

The disease causes the immune system to attack the protective coating that shields nerve cells in the brain, spinal cord, and nervous system. And after noticing the positive results on the condition in leukaemia patients, the researchers decided to trial the new technique just on MS patients, to try to flush out the immune system and effectively start again.

New Treatment For Multiple Sclerosis is really effective

The Treatment For Multiple Sclerosis is designed to stop the progress of MS, but in many cases, it’s actually reversing the progress of the disease, suggesting that the nervous system can sometimes repair itself after MS takes hold, reports Clare Wilson for New Scientist.The trial began in 2000, and overall, 17 of the 24 people involved in the study saw their MS halted or reversed.

It’s not an easy treatment to undergo, because of some rather dramatic and debilitating side effects, and it’s currently only being offered to those with severe MS – patients who are essentially left without a functioning immune system for a period of time. That said, its potential is huge if doctors can figure out how to make it safer.New Multiple Sclerosis Treatment Offers Hope To Patients.

“Everyone is hesitating to use the ‘c word’, but these patients are cured,” senior scientist Michael Rudnicki of the Ottawa Health Research Institute in Canada, who wasn’t directly involved in the research, told Vox.”[One of the trial patients] Jennifer Molson was in a wheelchair in a rehab centre, unable to work. And now she’s skiing, she’s working, she got married, got her driver’s license.
