Stem Cell Treatment to Regenerate Central Nervous System with MS

Adult Stem CellsA stem cell is basically any cell that can replicate and differentiate. Stem Cell says this means the cell can not only multiply, it can turn into different types of tissues.

Fat is loaded with mesenchymal stem cells (cells that migrate easily) and we have tools that allow us to separate the stem cells from fat. These hibernating stem cells are isolated and activated with our own platelets.

Research has shown that fat cells, or adipose derived stem cells (ADSCs), can be turned into other cell types which could be used to help rebuild lost tissue.

Dr. Balshi explained that multiple sclerosis is not a stem cell disease, MS has come later in the evolution of cellular growth. The disease is in the central nervous system and the stem cells are not affected by it.

I told Dr. Balshi that I suffered from incontinence like so many others with MS and my thought is that the stem cells would be able to heal and regenerate or redevelop the damaged parts of my body that prevent continence.

He agreed, “That’s the hope.” Dr. Blashi admits that the stem cell treatment is not a cure for MS just a treatment.

It will be exciting to see if my MS symptoms improve over time.
