Dr. Richard Burt video; stem cell use improves the lives of Multiple Sclerosis sufferers



Dr. Richard Burt, the Adult Stem Cell doctor at Northwestern University is publishing results of a study on treating Multiple Sclerosis patients with their own Adult Stem Cells.


The study took 21 patients in the “relapsing-remitting” form of Multiple Sclerosis and implanted them with their own adult stem cells:

Three years after being treated, on average, 17 of the patients had improved on tests of their symptoms, 16 had experienced no relapse and none had deteriorated, the study found.


There are two types of stem cells, “adult” and “embryonic”. Embryonic stem cells come from an embryo. The taking of these cells is fatal but taking adult stems does not cause the death of the person. Adult stem cells are found in many parts of the body, the most common of these "adult stem cells” are found in the blood. There are similar cells in the liver, in nervous systems, and all around the body.


Here is a video on Barry Goudy, another Multiple Sclerosis patient who was in this trial.

Fantastic, isn't it amazing!
Let's pray they continue to use adult stem cells, and not embryonic stem cells.

I agree, we also need to spread the word about adult stem cells. You never hear about therm in the media.

My son had an autologous stem cell transplant in 2000 at Scripps Green in Ca. Dr. Richard Burt was involved in writing the protocol for that procedure. I have lost track of all but two of the people that we had been in contact with but several were doing well.

That's great news betty. I hope your son is doing well. I think adult stem cells have a promising future.

Is Dr Burt still accepting study participants? I have early remitting MS and I would love to be in his study.

Secular Heretic said...

You could probably contact him through the university and ask.

CCP said...

YES!!!!! My wife was just accepted. You need to move fast and talk to your neurologist so he can get you an appointment. Dr.Burt is an amazing doctor he should get the NOBLE PRIZE. The Man Is A Saint For What He Achieved.

I have had Diabetes for almost all my life, since the day I found I had it, I haven't had one candy bar, ice cream, cookies or nothing with added sugar!!!! This is Awesome News! I talked to my doctor today and he told me to look up Richard Burt and said I should find out what it would take for me to get help. I don't care about the sugar so much as I do what is going on with my body now I am 41 and seem to not be full of life anymore. Does anyone how I can contact Dr Burt? dlandbob@yahoo.com is my email.
Thanks,
Bob Tucker

Looks very promising. In such a small trial, to fully pin down the effects and hopefully the mechanisms behind them, this needs a large double-blinded placebo included trial to fully prove any merit. Looks very promising. I have MS so am crossing my fingers!

My son had adult stem cell therapy for his type1 diabetes. It's only been 3 months since his procedure, and we've seen an improvement in his blood glucose and have been reducing his nightime basal. I hope that they will soon approve this in the US.

Has Dr Burt performed ASCT on Multiple Myeloma patients? Does anyone know about this?

Mom of Twin Girls said...

Hi! I just heard about Dr Burt on Radio Liberty with Dr Stan Monteith in California where I live. Dr Stan was talking to Jennifer Laul. Jennifer brought up Dr Burt and his use of Stem Cells, adult stem cells.

Well, I have R/R MS and I really want to know more about this. I really, really want to be healed, without killing pre-born babies.

I am a Mom of twin girls and I want to be around to see them grow up. Can someone please contact me so I can get in touch with Dr. Burt? Thank you.

You can receive this treatment to cure your MS like I did. I documented it all in my blog:
