Here is My Question:
A family member sent me this link and I'm curious what you guys thoughts are on this. https://okyanos.com/conditions-for-stem-cell-therapy/autoimmune/multiple-sclerosis-ms/
The only symptom of MS that I have experienced is optic neuritis within the past 6 months. Would this kind of therapy be used for more advanced MS?
Please refer to prior Blogs and responses on this site pertaining to stem cell treatment.
Mesenchymal Stem cell therapy is of no proven value in MS. There are ongoing clinical trials in the US and Europe, but this center in the Bahamas is not performing clinical trials. They are simply charging you a lot of money (not covered by insurance) to give you a totally unproven therapy. There are other “Stem Cell Clinics” in the United States performing the same procedure on anyone willing to pay the price.
