Cleveland Clinic has completed their study, but Dr. Burt inCHicago at Northwestern in in Phase III trials with impressive results. Also, Hutchinson Center in Seattle is in the same trials. This is for non-myeoablative stem cell transplant using your blood for stem cells. The programs in Costa Rica and Mexico have been proved fraudulent and disbanded. I ma currently in Moscow under the care of Dr. Denis Fedorenko about to begin treatment. It is not painful as this is non-myeo form. Excellent results for RRMS.

Contact the MELLON CENTER(Does only MS research/treatments) at the Cleveland Clinic. I know they did a study on this very thing about 2 years ago. The study is over now but I don't know the results. I applied for it but didn' get chosen. They said in the paperwork that it was a painfull procedure
