Default Article in Neurology Now: Is Stem Cell Transplantation Still Viable for MS?

Is Autologous Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation Still Viable for MS?

FitzGerald, Susan
Neurology Today: 18 May 2017 - Volume 17 - Issue 10 - p 1013

Two new reports on autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (AHSCT) for multiple sclerosis (MS) indicate that the therapy may benefit some MS patients. But whether AHSCT is viable is a matter of debate among some MS experts, who contend that the regimen could be toxic, leading to infection and death.
