Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is one of the most dreaded diseases worldwide. MS primarily affects the nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Multiple Sclerosis patients have to suffer physical and mental symptoms such as blindness, double vision, muscle issues, psychological issues, and so on. To those who know someone who has multiple sclerosis, know that this can be fatal. In fact, the life expectancy of an MS patient is often shortened.
There are medications to cure the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis, but be reminded that there is NO cure. But it seems that a scientist is on the verge of discovering a cure for MS! This brings more hope to MS patients all across the globe.
Dr. Metcalfe is on the verge of a medical breakthrough. This will change millions of lives all over the world!
Multiple Sclerosis cure is surely going to be the star of the medical profession for a very long time once it is discovered. Dr. Metcalfe even believes that we can do something to stop the attack on the nerve cells. The new medical development produced at her company, LIFNano is the answer to this predicament.
Dr. Metcalfe is using the stem cell particle, LIF, a very important part of the immune cell. LIF has the capacity to can control and reduce the attack. The scientist also shared that she is looking to discover and find out what controls the immune response, how to stop it from auto-attacking us. Dr.
Metcalfe discovered a small binary switch that is controlled by a LIF that is responsible for regulating the immune cell. LIF controls the cell and see to it that it will not attack your own body. Aside from that, LIG also releases the attack when your body needs it.
LIF also plays a very important role in keeping our brain and spinal cord healthy. It is also very important in tissue repair, turning on the stem cells that naturally occur in the body which makes it a natural regenerative medicine. It also helps in repairing the brain when it is damaged.
“Some people get progressive MS, so go straight to the severe form of the disease, but the majority have a relapsing or remitting version. It can start from the age of 30, and there’s no cure, so all you can do is suppress the immune response, but the drugs that do that have side effects, and you can’t repair the brain.
The cost of those drugs is very high, and in the UK there are a lot of people who don’t get treated at all… So I thought, we can treat auto-immune disease, and we’ve got something to treat MS. ”
This is definitely promising yet there is still plenty of research that needs to be done to back the claims. Despite its lack of scientific evidence, LIF is effective in providing hope for everyone that soon, there will be a cure to Multiple Sclerosis.
In 2020, the scientist together with her team would possibly introduce the cure for MS. That is when the tests are positive and there is enough research done regarding this matter. Before it can be used in humans, thorough research should be able to prove that this cure is safe and effective for human use.
