One person's experience with Autologous Stem Cell Transplant

Please read a journal of one person's experience with Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation for multiple sclerosis. It is rather a touching story well worth reading. I hope we can inspire some other recipients of stem cell therapy to contribute also.

Here is a more recent story showing the kind of advances Stem Cell therapy has made since 2003. It is important to realise that this is just one case study but increasingly it seems CNS damage whether its caused by MS, other diseases or injury can be repaired by autologous Stem cells.

Endless supply of stem cells

Postby Michele » Thu, 01 Nov 2012, 3:31 pm

Researchers find a way of prompting cells to continue to divide, thus producing an endless supply, this will be particularly helpful in stem cell therapy.

The study focuses on cells called glial progenitor cells (GPCs) that are found in the white matter of the human brain. These stem cells give rise to two cells found in the central nervous system: oligodendrocytes, which produce myelin, the fatty tissue that insulates the connections between cells; and astrocytes, cells that are critical to the health and signaling function of oligodendrocytes as well as neurons.
