An MS Caregiver Needs Stem Cell Information from those with firsthand knowledge
Posted Dec 24 2009 12:00am
I appreciate what you are doing. My wife is quadriplegic, on a ventilator due to MS. Bedridden for 15 years.
I have hopes for stem cells and other possible cures. When I went to the site concerning the experiences in China with stem cell therapy, I noticed a pattern: generally enthusiastic praise for the treatment during and a few weeks after, followed by no further comments or a rare negative one on lack of progressw. The big improvements were to come within a few months and seem not to have occurred. We need to know the unvarnished truth, even if that diminishes the likelihood of a placebo effect.
Now I see other treatments being covered with a similar pattern: early this and early that.
