Stem cells directly into spine
Has anyone heard of research of stem cells directly into the spine? My neurologist mentioned it last September and said I would be a good candidate for trials. I spoke to my ms nurse this week and she had heard about it but it wasn't being trialled in this country and she is now on long term leave. She said it removes the need for chemo. I can't find anything on the internet so was wondering if anyone else had been told anything? Thank you for reading Helen ppms 20 years.
sorry should have made clear it is the neurologist on long term leave and can't be asked!
