Scientists from Northwestern University in Chicago reported on Thursday that in HUMAN clinical trials (not animals) of those paralysed with Multiple Sclerosis that 81% of patients had their symptoms reversed using Bone Marrow Stem Cell transplants.

More large trials are planned as this has to be exciting for those with this disease and other neurodegenerative diseases.

The other part that is forgotten in your post is that ALL of the 21 patients involved saw a complete stabilization in the disease progress. That alone is AWSOME!!!

Stem Cells even made the cover of Time magazine this week and the featured story titled ''Stem Cells: Poised For A Breakthrough''.

Good read.

The one thing I like about this possible treatment is the Moral and Political side is well.. just not there. Since the stem cells come from the patients own body.

Also it's great for the rejection problem by the hosts immune cells.

That was a great success in spain late in 2008 where they took stem cells from a lady and grew her a new trachea in a lab then transplanted it in her and she has had no rejection problems which is great.
