Autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT): Hope for MS Patients

To date, multiple sclerosis (MS) as an incurable Disease. According to the German Multiple Sclerosis Society (DMSG) expands the treatment of MS patients on three science-based pillars: the treatment of relapse, a long-term so-called immunoprophylactic Therapy and Treatment of the symptoms, supplemented with rehabilitation process. These three treatment options are generally combined and individual to the individual patient tailored. The MS patients are both outpatient or partial inpatient treated as stationary, depending on personal Circumstances and the Severity of their illness. Transplantation of Stem cells is so far as bone marrow transplantation in leukemia patients better known.

In professional circles, is the correct Term for this form of therapy „Autologous hematopoietic Stem cell transplantation “ (HSCT). Autologous means that donor and receiver have the same Person – as opposed to allogeneic: Donor and receiver are different People. The term „Hematopoietic“ refers on the stem:cell they are responsible for the formation of the blood. In the case of HSCT at first hematopoietic Stem cells from bone marrow or blood are taken from the patient. Subsequently followed by much like a Cancer – a Chemotherapy. This will deesstroy all still in the body existing immune cells. Thereafter, the previously removed Stem cells by infusion returned to the body, so that -if all goes well – the Patients within a short Time a new, healthy immune system can build that ideally no more against the body’s structures – the nerve cells – fights. Some experts speak of autologous hematopoietic Stem cell transplantation as a disease-stabilizing Therapy. The procedure is for the Patients lengthy and stressful Also a very low risk of the therapy of dying there is, for example in a study report the Swiss Multiple Sclerosis Society – Although the Risk in various studies and during the therapy administered Drugs already almost can be completely reduced.
