Stem Cell Therapy: Modern Medicine's Promising Future For MS Treatment
MS research shows that adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cell therapy may potentially repair the damage and inflammation seen in the nervous system of patients with MS. During an autoimmune reaction, the myelin sheath coating which is formed around the axons of neurons slowly deteriorates, thus causing physical and cognitive impairments. By calming down the autoimmune attack …
WHAT CAN STEM CELLS DO? You may have heard of stem cells before, but there is a lot of mystery about what they actually … do. Why is this such a promising new field?

The results of a new study published in the journal Stem Cell Research & Therapy suggests that the popular ancient Indian spice, turmeric, could help repair the brain following an injury and could also be...
Surgeons in London use human embryonic stem cells to try to cure blindness in a patient. About one in four over-60s in the UK has age-related macular degeneration. -- Research like this has been slowed by widespread opposition to the use of embryos (due to anti-abortion views, mostly religious in nature). Pope Francis has spoken out against embryonic stem cell research, as have many religious leaders.
