    Why do people say there is no cure for MS?!!!!
    afizmyf8 posted:
    Why are people not talking about HSCT?? Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is the transplantation of multipotent hematopoietic stem cells, usually derived from bone marrow, peripheral blood, or umbilical cord blood. I have an identical twin brother that was diagnosed with MS 11 years ago and it has become more debilitating every day. He found out about HSCT and has spent over a year researching it. HSCT has a 86-90% success rate of irradiating MS forever yet the big pharmaceutical companies do not want you to know about it and they do not want the FDA to approve a procedure that was confirmed successful in Colorado in the 1990's! The drug companies don't want this procedure approved because they would lose BILLIONS of dollars in revenue every year. HSCT needs to be made known and pushed to our legislators. By brother went through HSCT in February of this year and is now walking without the cane that he had been walking with for the last 5 years!

    Wow, I'm so happy for your brother! Where did he have his transplant done?
