Tisch MS News

On November 6, Neurology Today Online featured Tisch MSRCNY in a review of news coming out of the ACTRIMS/ECTRIMS Annual Meeting in September examining the safety of stem cell therapy in MS treatment. The article discussed two different trials that were found to be safe and well tolerated in multiple sclerosis patients: one using intravenous injection of mesenchymal stem cells and the other Tisch MSRCNY’s protocol using intrathecal injections of mesenchymal stem cells.

Thank you to all who attended the 17th Annual Tisch MS Research Patient Symposium.  In response to your requests, a review of the material presented will be posted on this website and appear in the next issue of our newsletter, Healing MS.
