A new clinical study, HDIT/HCT, which was conducted by the ITN and sponsored by the National Institute of Health (NIH) and NIAID, revealed that stem cell transplants may induce long-term remission of multiple sclerosis (MS). MS is an autoimmune disease where the immune system attacks the central nervous system. The study, which lasted five years, indicated that close to 70 percent of the participants responded positively to the treatment by surviving without progression of disability, brain lesions or relapse of MS symptoms. After receiving HDIT/HCT, these participants did not take any MS treatment. HDIT/HCT research aims to suppress active diseases and prevent further disability by eliminating disease-causing cells and resetting the immune system.
