New stem cell treatment ‘freezes’ multiple sclerosis

LNM Radio Network

A multiple sclerosis treatment which “resets” the immune system has been found to “freeze” progression of the disease in nearly half of patients, according to scientists.

A study led by Imperial College London found that 46% of patients who underwent the treatment did not suffer a worsening of their condition for five years.

The treatment could give hope to the estimated 100,000 people in the UK who are affected by multiple sclerosis (MS), for which there is currently no cure.
