Multiple Sclerosis Treatment with Stem Cell Therapy

Because stem cells exist in an undifferentiated state, they are capable of differentiating or changing into specialised cells, replicating any tissue in the human body, including muscle cells, red blood cells, and even brain or nerve cells. The efficacy of stem cell therapy in treating diseases and conditions such as blood cancers (Leukaemia), haemoglobin disorders, and inherited immune deficiencies has been demonstrated and is widely accepted. But it is the remarkable potential of stem cells in regenerating or replacing nerve cells that offers the greatest promise for neurologically degenerative diseases such as multiple sclerosis.

Multiple sclerosis is a complex disease in which the bodies own immune system attacks and damages the myelin sheaths that cover and insulate nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. This degradation and scarring (scleroses) of myelin destroys the ability of nerve cells to communicate effectively with one another. When this happens, any of a number of unpredictable neurological symptoms may appear, including weakness, numbness, pain, speech and vision problems, impairment of cognitive ability, and mood swings, among others. While these symptoms may appear and then gradually disappear, a form of the disease called relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis, permanent neurological problems (irreversible progressive multiple sclerosis) are considered to be a hallmark of the disease, especially as it advances over time. Though the mechanics of the disease itself are well-understood, there is not a definitive explanation of its cause, nor is there any known cure.

 

What has shown tremendous promise is the use of mesenchymal stem cells in therapeutic treatment of multiple sclerosis. If, through the application of stem cell therapy, these non-blood forming stem cells could regenerate the myelin sheaths, they would restore the ability of nerve cells to communicate with one another and cause the symptoms triggered by the impeded communication to fade or disappear. In fact, recent research shows that this is precisely what stem cell therapy can offer for patients suffering from multiple sclerosis. Though the treatment is still considered an emerging therapy and the long-term efficacy of stem cell therapy for treating multiple sclerosis is yet to be determined, research continues and the prospects are very positive.
