Stem Cell Therapy for Multiple Sclerosis
In recent clinical trials, umbilical cord stem cells were found to not only be effective in treating symptoms of multiple sclerosis, but were found to be safe and even lead to sustained improvements in disability and brain lesions. This report was released on March 20th, 2018 on the website Multiple Sclerosis News Today.
The original article titled, “Clinical feasibility of umbilical cord tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells in the treatment of multiple sclerosis” was published in the Journal of Translational Medicine in January of 2018.
Current treatments of MS, while able to reduce the frequency of flare ups and slow disease progression, are not able to repair damage to nerve cells or the protective layer around nerve fibers known as the myelin sheath.
As we discussed in our article, “Not All Stem Cells Are Created Equal”, stem cells must at least be multipotent in order to have the ability to differentiate into multiple cell types. Mesenchymal stem cells, or MSCs, have this ability and can be extracted from umbilical cords. Stem Cells LA uses umbilical cord-extracted mesenchymal stem cells, the same as those used in this trial, in all of our patient stem cell treatments.
If you or someone you know is fighting a battle with multiple sclerosis and is interested in trying stem cell therapy, please contact us today.

Stem Cells LA is the best choice for stem cell therapy in Los Angeles. We utilize treatments of up to 30 million heterogeneous umbilical cord stem cells including mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) for conditions including autoimmune disease, heart disease, orthopedic disease, neurological disease, urologic disease, erectile dysfunction and antiaging. We even use the restorative properties of stem cell treatments to help reduce healing time from procedures such as hair transplants and now offer stem cell therapy for neuropathy, arthritis and hair loss with stem cell-infused PRP therapy. Only a doctor can help you decide if stem cell and/or PRP treatments are right for you.
