According to a five-year research involving a new treatment approach known as high-dose immunosuppressive therapy and autologous hematopoietic cell transplant (HDIT/HCT), the majority of MS patients showed tremendous improvement in their conditions. Out of one hundred trial patients, at least sixty-nine survived without experiencing any side effect to the treatment. This is a much better statistics compared to the current MS medication.

Once the chemo process is complete, the patient’s stem cells are reintroduced in the body to regenerate the immune system.
