Last week’s hot topic on Multiple Sclerosis was about Some Forms of MS that Might Be Treatable with Hematopoietic Stem Cells written by Alisa Woods.

The article focused on the clinical trials that suggest hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), a common treatment for bone marrow and blood cancers, could also help people with multiple sclerosis (MS). The technique involves harvesting new, undeveloped blood or bone marrow (hematopoietic) cells, typically from the person affected with the disease (autologous).

Thanks to the work of researchers in Australia, it is possible to remove the faulty cells and replace them with new, cancer-free cells.
