Default Northwestern HSCT program going on extended hiatus

This was just shared on HSCT forums, apparently from a letter to existing patients (and hopeful future patients) by the staff of Dr. Burt. The only HSCT locations in the US for treatment of MS are down to Seattle and Denver, and both are extremely selective with their patient. -D

Quote:
After 30 years developing HSCT for autoimmune diseases from animal models to phase I, II, and III studies, and 15 years of working 24/7/365 to be available to care for both inpatients and outpatients, Dr. Burt will wind down transplant over this year and afterwards is taking an academic research sabbatical to focus on publishing articles, publish a requested medical textbook on this field, educational talks to help other centers through America develop this therapy, and work on another scientific stem cell discovery that Dr Burt wants to bring to clinical trials to help patients. Dr Burt and his entire team are extremely grateful for the support and gratitude of all his patients. We are so proud and honored to have traveled this path with you. Thank you from all of us.

Here is an article on the topic by MSer Ed Tobias. I agree with Ed, there seems to be more to this story.
