After reviewing evidence on the use of autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (aHSCT) for the treatment of multiple sclerosis, the National MS Society has concluded that aHSCT is a good treatment option for some people living with MS.
Dr. Jeffrey Cohen, the Director of the Cleveland Clinic's Mellen Center for Multiple Sclerosis Treatment and Research, joins me this week to share all the details about aHSCT and explain who is and who isn't an ideal candidate for this treatment.
We'll also tell you about the National MS Society's mini-site that's dedicated to aHSCT.
We have more good news to share about a new category of disease-modifying therapy.
There's a new study that may solve some sleep problems associated with MS. We'll tell you how you can participate!
And we'll explain why it looks like the National MS Society is now part of the Marvel Universe!
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
We're in the top 1.5%!! :22
