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.
