MS Disease and Providing a Biologic Perspective and Reducing the Symptoms of the Disease with the Help of Stem Cells

Ehsan Sharifipour, Hoorolnesa Ameli, Shima Sadat Hashemi Madani


Introduction: MS is one of the most common inflammatory diseases of the central nervous system, with the destruction of nerves. One of the symptoms of MS disorder is dystonia, fatigue, spasticity, disturbances, lack of sensation in the organs, cognitive impairment, weakness, tremor, pain, bladder and bowel dysfunction. Method: The search was carried out in the Pubmed/Medline database. 63 The study was designed to investigate patients with MS and therapeutic samples that were materially similar to the current research, and are included in this article. Findings: Therapeutic injection methods in MS have responded, but patients are still in trouble. Studies have shown that the use of stem cells for treating patients with MS has been fruitful and can be used to treat MS. Discussion: As it has been said, the most important treatment challenges in this way is to reduce treatment, and moreover, that anti-MS drugs in advanced forms are limited. Hence, the production of new, improved medicines for the complete treatment of MS is essential. Stem cells play a veryw important role in the repair process, and the complications of these cells are low in patients and provide an acceptable response. Reliably, the focus on new immunology methods with more biological properties has a greater impact on the treatment category. They will have patients.
