Large number of MS patients from Europe, America and Australia have already been treated successfully.
Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is now a proven treatment to reset the faulty immune systems of people suffering from autoimmune diseases by taking hematopoietic stem cells from the patient’s bone marrow or blood and wiping out their immune system with chemotherapy. Autologous HSCT is considered the safest form of HSCT in MS, and there is growing evidence that HSCT is an effective treatment for MS and other Autoimmune diseases
What exactly is Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (HSCT)?
HSCT involves the retrieval of hematopoietic stem cells – cells that have the ability to develop into any blood cell – from the patient’s bone marrow. These stem cells are then saved for later use and the patient goes through chemotherapy to eliminate the immune cells causing damage to the central nervous system. Subsequently, the stored stem cells are re-infused into the patient to reconstruct the immune system.
The primary objective of HSCT for individuals with MS is to reset their immune system and potentially impede or slow down the progression of the disease. This treatment option is usually a final resort for MS patients who have not responded to other treatments and have a more severe form of the disease.
The goal of HSCT for MS is to reset the immune system, which may slow or stop the progression of the disease. It is generally considered a last resort for people with MS who have not responded to other treatments and have a more severe form of the disease.Request a Call Back
How does HSCT for MS and other Autoimmune Diseases work ?
HSCT profoundly depletes the autoreactive immunologic memory (T cells and B cells) via high-dose chemotherapy. Conditioning regimens vary. In general though, stem cells are mobilized into the bloodstream by such treatments as granulocyte colony-stimulating factor and later collected. This is followed by autologous stem cell transplant, which reconstitutes a new immune system and reestablishes immune tolerance
The method of Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (HSCT) has emerged as a potential solution for individuals grappling with autoimmune diseases. This revolutionary treatment aims to repair the faulty immune system by harvesting hematopoietic stem cells from either the patient’s blood or bone marrow and then subjecting the patient to a rigorous course of chemotherapy to erase their immune system.
87 % of the MS patients who were followed for 4 years after undergoing HSCT had no more relapses and now lead a healthy and normal life.

“Following extensive research into stem cell therapy for MS, Artemis hospital was found to be a possible option for treatment. We were unable to access comparable treatment in England due to not meeting the qualifying criteria and the costs of private therapy was prohibitive. We had lengthy correspondence with all the hospitals on our list, offering this treatment. Every question that was put to Artemis was answered within 24hrs and in detail. No question had to be asked twice. With this feedback it gave me confidence in the consultant, his team and the procedure they carry out and we decided that Artemis was able to provide the most comprehensive package that met our needs.
From time of arrival at the airport in Delhi every care and support was offered to ensure that our needs were met. There was a period of detailed physiological testing to ensure that I was fit to undertake what proved to be an arduous and exacting procedure. ” Click here to Read More…

Tim is at home the one who is reading scientific research reports regularly and he rated the reports and the results as reliable and the treatment as a good chance to stop my MS. t was clear that HSCT was my only option to fight my MS. I had thought it over very well and I knew for sure that this was my only good chance to stop the MS. From that moment on I was convinced that I had to undergo the HSCT treatment.
