MS patients stem cells trial

27th September 2007

A new treatment for multiple sclerosis (MS) using stem cells is being pioneered near Bristol.

Six patients at Frenchay Hospital are being injected with their own stem cells in the hope they will repair damage to the brain or at least stop the damage getting any worse in the affected areas. An estimated 60,000 people in the UK suffer from MS, which is an incurable disease of the nervous system, and experts say that although it is still early days, a lot of hope is being pinned on these trials.
