By taking a person;s own stem cells from their bone marrow and erasing their own immune system, they can reintroduce the stem cells back into the person’s system and could start a process to repair the damage in the brain caused by MS

Now mind you , erasing your immune system in the first place can be cause for concern, but if it meant that when you reintroduce the person’s own bone marrow back into their body, there is a hope that a cure for MS is not far behind.

For the hundreds of thousands of people who are affected by MS in the USA, this is a hopeful discovery.
