"Multiple sclerosis is caused by the destruction of the myelin sheath of nerve cells, which could be reconstructed by the use of stem cell-based treatment”. In the past decade, stem cell research has revealed a great potential of utilizing Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) to reduce inflammation and beneficially modulate the immune system. When a doctor told Allison Carr she had 18 lesions on her spine and brain and multiple sclerosis would soon ravage her body, she thought her life was over. B.
Geeta Shroff Department of Stem Cell Therapy, Nutech Mediworld, New Delhi, India Abstract: Multiple sclerosis (MS), a complex disorder of the central nervous system (CNS), is characterized with axonal loss underlying long-term progressive bisexs.xyztly available therapies for its management are able to slow down the progression but fail to treat it bisexs.xyz by: May 22, · Stem cells in CNS disease models are reviewed, and the advantages and disadvantages of each stem cell type for future clinical application in multiple sclerosis .
Multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, stroke and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis are the most common diseases of the central nervous system. Transplantation of stem cells is a very promising approach for the treatment of diseases of the central nervous system such as multiple sclerosis. The rationale for use of adult stem cells as a treatment for neurological diseases such as multiple sclerosis arose from the hope that they had the capacity to foster repair of the CNS through tissue integration and differentiation into neural cells. Evidence from preclinical studies suggested that Cited by:
