According to the results of a new clinical trial, stem cell transplants are likely to induce remission of multiple sclerosis in the long run. The trial indicates that high-dose immunosuppressive therapy and transplantation of an individual’s own stem cells may stimulate sustained reduction of relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis. After five years of receiving high-dose immunosupprresive therapy treatment and autologous hematopoietic cell transplant, 69 percent of the participants did not experience continued disability. Additionally, they did not suffer from progression of MS symptoms or a relapse. Noteworthy, after obtaining HDIT/HCT, participants did not take any medication. Some studies have noted that the success rates of the present MS drugs are lower.
The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) were the sponsors of the trial dubbed HALT-MS. Immune Tolerance Network, which is funded by NIAID, conducted the research. The researchers published both the initial three-year results and the five-year results. The initial results of the study were published on December 2014. The final reports were made available online in February 2015. They were published on Neurology, which is a medical journal run by the American Academy of Neurology. From the findings, one-time HDIT/HCT treatment is was considered more effective compared to the long-term treatment using available medication for MS patients.
