Stem-cells and MS are widely discussed, but we might be finally getting closer to stem-cell treatments for MS patients.

Stem cell therapies are investigated for their potential to provide long-lasting or permanent remission of multiple sclerosis (MS) signs and symptoms. Many patients are well-informed of the potential of stem cell therapy for MS, and many seek treatments abroad that are promoted to give positive or curative outcomes. There are also clinics in the US that provide treatments that are outside of FDA-approved uses. The only FDA-approved, stem-cell based products used in the US consist of CD34+ stem cells derived from cord blood.

Patients with angina suffer with chronic, severe pain in the chest and other parts of the torso due to low blood supply to the heart muscle. Although there are standard treatments that work for many with angina, some have a more debilitating form that does not respond to treatment (refractory angina). About 1 million people in the U.S. have refractory angina. However, there is hope for those who are without viable treatment options. Researchers have observed that CD34+ stem cell treatment may help improve angina in patients who do not respond to other treatments.
