Is the HSCT movement in MS becoming an anti-science movement, i.e. adopted against the predominant scientific opinion of the time? The wider MS community, pwMS, neurologists, scientists, charities, healthcare systems, etc. have agreed that there is a place for HSCT in the treatment of MS, but until we have better evidence of its relative benefits and risks compared to licensed DMTs we should be....
