Stem Cell Transplantation to Treat Severe Refractory Multiple Sclerosis

Athanasia Mouzaki, Marios I Garyfallou and Kokona Chatzantoni

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: August 13, 2015

In severe, drug-resistant Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Stem Cell Transplantation (SCT) was introduced as a treatment option about 20 years ago.
