Stem Cell MS Clinical Trail

Phase I Study of High-Dose Cyclophosphamide and Total Body Irradiation With T Lymphocyte-Depleted Autologous Peripheral Blood Stem Cell or Bone Marrow Rescue in Patients With Multiple Sclerosis

Not sure what this all means, but while we're on the topic of stem cell research, this study is currently recruiting patients with MS.

Read it here.

One participant requirement is:
Diagnosis of multiple sclerosis Kurtzke score of 4.0-7.5 Increase of 1.0 point over the past 12 months More than 3 relapses in 24 months despite conventional disease modifying therapy Failure to stabilize active clinical progression with a 3-day regimen of methylprednisolone IV
