Stem Cell Treatment for Multiple Sclerosis
Can stem cell therapy help multiple sclerosis?
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disease that causes patient’s immune system to attack different parts of the central nervous system of his/her own, such as the brain, spinal cord and optic nerve.
There is no cure for MS, a range of treatment options are available to help relieve symptoms and slow the progression of MS, stem cell therapy is one of these treatments, and it improves the quality of life of people diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
Hundreds of patients with various types of multiple sclerosis have been treated with stem cell therapy, where they received healthy stem cells to replace the damaged tissue in their bodies.
How does stem cell therapy treat multiple sclerosis?
Stem cells are types of cells that can turn into any other specific cell in the adult body. These cells play an important role in early life and growth as they help the body develop the variety of cells that it needs.
A key function of the stem cells is repairing, they help the body repair itself, and replace cells that are damaged or lost. Stem cells also have the ability to self-renew. This means they can divide and create an unlimited amount of new cells of the same type.
Multiple sclerosis causes an immune response resulting damage to the protective myelin, the fatty substance that surrounds nerve fibers. The immune response also damages the nerve fibers themselves and the cells that produce myelin.
The aim of stem cell therapy in multiple sclerosis is to modulate the immune response and promote regeneration of myelin sheaths in order to slow down disease progression, alleviate symptoms, and improve the quality of life for individuals living with multiple sclerosis.
Potential Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy in Multiple Sclerosis
Hundreds of patients with multiple sclerosis have been treated with stem cell therapy. After stem cell treatment, the following improvements were reported.

Multiple Sclerosis FAQs
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic autoimmune disease that affects the central nervous system, which includes the brain and spinal cord. It occurs when the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks the protective covering of nerve fibers, called myelin. This results in inflammation, damage, and disruption to the normal functioning of the nerves.
The exact cause of MS is still unknown, but it is believed to involve a combination of genetic and environmental factors. It is not considered a hereditary disease, although certain genetic variations may increase the risk of developing MS.
The symptoms of MS can vary widely from person to person and can affect multiple areas of the body. Common symptoms include fatigue, difficulty walking, muscle weakness or spasms, numbness or tingling, problems with coordination and balance, pain, vision problems, bladder and bowel dysfunction, cognitive changes, and mood disorders.
MS is typically diagnosed through a combination of medical history, neurological examination, and diagnostic tests such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and lumbar puncture (spinal tap). There is currently no cure for MS, but various treatment options are available to manage symptoms, slow the progression of the disease, and improve quality of life.
Treatment approaches may include medications to reduce inflammation, manage symptoms, and modify the course of the disease. Physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy can help individuals manage specific symptoms and improve their overall function. Additionally, lifestyle modifications, such as regular exercise, a healthy diet, stress management, and adequate rest, may be recommended.
