BBC NEWS | Health | MS stem-cell treatment 'success'
Stem-cell transplants may control and even reverse multiple sclerosis symptoms if done early enough, a small study has suggested.
Not one of 21 adults with relapsing-remitting MS who had stem cells transplanted from their own bone marrow deteriorated over three years.
And 81% improved by at least one point on a scale of neurological disability, The Lancet Neurology reported.
Further tests are now planned, and a UK expert called the work "encouraging".
