Canadian Doctors Have Successfully Reversed the Effects of MS in a Patient Using Stem Cells

August 12, 2016View for printing

Canadian doctors have managed to reverse severe MS using stem cells, virtually eliminating it from a patient's body. Jennifer Molson had crippling MS before she participated in a study that involved chemotherapy and a stem cell bone marrow transplant in 2002. Molson was one of a small cohort of 24 people who received the high-risk, experimental therapy.

Led by Dr. Mark Freedman and Dr. Harold Atkins at the Ottawa Hospital, the clinical trial spanned over 13 years.
