Welcome to our very first weekly news review. Starting today, it is the intention to use the Monday column of this blog to cast a look back at the previous week’s editorial content of this MS site.
In particular, we’ll be looking at the wide range of topics covered and seeing which ones proved to be the most popular with everyone.
Two news stories, both about the use of stem cell therapy to treat MS, dominated the interests of people visiting Multiple Sclerosis News Today website last week.
Two facets of the same story, the outcome of a long term clinical trial in Canada, were presented in the two news items:
“Aggressive Stem Cell Therapy Stops MS Relapses, According to Long-term Clinical Trial” concentrated on the success of the long-term clinical trial of HSCT that followed the partipants for up to 13 years after treatment. The other, “Aggressive Stem Cell Transplant Approach Halts MS for Years, But Risks are High,” drew more attention to the risks involved in the procedure that remains confidential.

Others in the Top Five list of best-read stories were:

Now, I broke a few bones as a teenager but never has it occurred to me that pressure can help them mend. But, accepting that as a medical fact, it is exciting as a patient to find out that myelin regeneration can be stimulated in a similar way.
