The National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS) defines Multiple Sclerosis as an “immune-mediated process in which an abnormal response of the body’s immune system is directed against the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves.”
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society states that there are “four different types of MS which are identified as clinically isolated syndrome (CIS), relapsing-remitting MS (RRMS), primary progressive MS (PPMS), and secondary progressive MS (SPMS). Approximately 85 percent of people are initially diagnosed with RRMS. It is characterized by clearly defined attacks of new or increasing neurological symptoms (relapses) followed by periods of partial or complete recovery (remissions). During remission, symptoms may disappear, or become permanent.”
The results of a recent research trial involving 24 RRMS patients called “Halt MS” conducted by the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases and the Immune Tolerance Network, revealed that nearly seventy percent of participants receiving high-dose immunotherapy followed by a single stem cell treatment remained in remission for a five-year period, even without taking MS medications.
