British physicians from Sheffield City announced on Monday that more patients diagnosed with multiple sclerosis showed remarkable improvements after having received a treatment that is usually used against cancer.
Multiple sclerosis is a disease that is currently incurable. The new treatment has allowed patients diagnosed with this disease to walk again by “restarting” their immune systems.
In a clinical trial conducted at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield, carried out on 20 patients, the researchers used stem cells in bone marrow transplants.
