MS Stem Cell Treatment Only a ‘Miracle’ for Some

(Nursing Times) – Multiple sclerosis (MS) affects nerves in the brain and spinal cord, causing problems with muscle movement, balance and vision. It’s an autoimmune disease, where the body’s immune system attacks its own nerve cells. There is currently no cure, but many different treatments are available to help with symptoms. This study was mainly about relapsing remitting MS, the most common type, where people have distinct attacks of symptoms, which then fade away either partially or completely.
