Multiple Sclerosis’ Enlightening Research

Most of the infectious & immune-mediated diseases have a neurological connection. In most of the cases, these illnesses stems from or cause neurological damage which consequently affects the nervous systems. Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an example of the said diseases that causes physical impairments, brain lesions, chronic pain and speech difficulties among other symptoms. The most common form of this disease is relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis. DR. Shiva Gopal Vasishta is one of the doctors who is committed to finding the cure and treatment options for such illnesses. Most recently, a research conducted by Immune Tolerance Network (ITN) is the closest people have come in finding a solution for the illness.

The research conducted by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases’ sponsorship was carried out over a period of five years and its final five-year report has just been publicized at a medical journal. The test subjects were 24 patients aged between 26-52 years. The doctors stripped them of their immune through chemotherapy after taking samples of their stem cells and later injected the cells back into their bodies in a process called “HDIT/HCT (high-dose immunosuppressive therapy and autologous hematopoietic cell transplant)”. 69% of the patients’ MS stabilized with a few of them showing improvements and recovering some of their physical abilities. According to the findings, this method of treatments is more effective than long-term treatment with normal MS drugs.

  1. Shiva is a neurological & psychiatrist based in New Jersey who studied medicine at the government medical college, graduated in 1979 and completed his residency at Boston University medical center. He has more than 30 years’ experience in the field and is currently part of Eastern Neurodiagnostic Associates but still works closely with Kennedy Health System Cherry Hill Campus. He is also enrolled with medicare so he can prescribe drugs to all the patients with its benefit.


Stem cells are like tiny little magicians creating healing alchemy within our own bodies.

One of the most amazing aspects of stem cells is their ability to transform from one function in one part of the body, to another function in another part of the body. They can do this because they are actually undifferentiated cells, meaning they have the quality of placidity.

The marvelous part of stem cells is how they are used to treat illness. For instance they are used with great success in treating various lung disease like emphysema, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, pulmonary fibrous and more. The procedure requires harvesting blood or blood marrow from the patient and then reintroducing it back into the blood stream of the patient. Then the blood goes into the right chamber of the heart where it travels to the lungs where healing can take place.

The Lung Institute was formed with the intention of treating people with lung disease in the most effective and state of the art facilities. They have five different locations in the United States with highly trained and experienced doctors and physicians.

The Lung Institute website offers information about stem cells in general as well as the spectrum of treatments available to consider. They also have excellent seminars to attend and webinars available to view any anywhere at all. They continue to research and inform the public about the positive aspects of stem cell treatments.

According Cedars-sinai, people who suffer from any form of chronic lung disease know how hard it is to function anymore in a normal way. Their breathing and energy is limited and their quality of life is seriously affected. Stem cell therapy offers a chance to recover in many cases and receive corrective relief and treatments in other situations. It’s absolutely a revolutionary method of medicine and ongoing research and as such is a viable option to consider for healing. Read more about stem cell therapy research on
