When you google the phrase “stem cell therapy for MS“, it can feel like you fell into a black hole of conflicting information, misinformation, and dodgy information that can be full of promises designed to speak directly to someone who is anxiously and sometimes desperately looking for a miracle cure for a debilitating condition. And there's also plenty of good, credible information available online. But how do you go about separating the wheat from the chaff? We're going to try to jump start that process for you in this podcast episode, as we look at the current state of stem cell therapy & MS.
We're also discussing the latest news about Ocrevus, medical cannabis for MS, a clinical trial that's recruiting 900 people recently diagnosed with relapsing-remitting MS, a couple of new apps to help you manage MS, and a webinar about maintaining your independence with progressive MS.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS?
