    1. Hi Barbara, I am no expert on the trials. I just post the information but you should join the face book group “Hematopioetic Stem Cell Transplant – MS & Autoimmune Diseases”. Post the question there and I am sure someone will be more acquainted with the options available to you! Good luck x

    1. I think Ottawa is the only place in Canada that has HSCT for MS and AI Diseases and the parameters for the trial are quite narrow. See my comment above and do that.

  1. I am also from Canada. I am a mom with three kids still at home going to school, and post secondary. I worked all my life but I am now on disability. My MS does not look dramatic but I do have a brainstem lesion, and I have lesions on 6 of my 7 cervical neck spine areas, also thoracic lesions – last MRI said thinning at T5. If T5 goes I will be a paraplegic. My brain is not so badly affected so other than moving slowly, sometimes staggering, tripping, I look fairly normal but am I ever suffering on the inside. I constantly feel like I have a cement block squashing me down. Sometimes I feel like if I fall asleep I may not wake up. I am in constant pain from my lesions on my back. The brainstem lesion I believe is the cause of my hearing loss. I get Uhthoff’s so badly I can barely see – everything becomes a milky white fog and I lose the ability to walk. I am trying to get into Ottawa, but it does not look good. So if that fails I will try to find place that offers HSCT for pay. If I don’t go I know I am facing wheelchair soon, adaptive equipment and as I get worse, and I will, I will need palliative care which will cost us a fortune so… The less impact on my family, my children will be HSCT, though because I am on disability that will be a huge financial blow. At any rate, this does not cost anything but I am trying to get this petition going because I don’t think when people can get this treatment for cancer, why it isn’t a readily available choice for MS. Please sign this petition to put pressure on (Canada – Health Canada, and for the USA – FDA) to get this to be an approved treatment so we don’t have to be jumping through hoops and bankrupting ourselves, especially when it saves millions for insurance drug costs. https://www.change.org/p/provide-hsct-for-multiple-sclerosis-as-a-recognized-treatment

    1. Hi Laurie, I have no information on whether this will be available at the new hospital in Vancouver. The only treatments that I know of in Canada are trials. Please see the HSCT facilities list to get contact info to find out. Good luck.

    1. Sarah I believe it is classified as Non-Myeloablative. They have a unique protocol which falls somewhere between the two, but is still
      officially classified as Non-Myeloablative.

      1. Hello,

        Has anyone been to the makati medical centre for HSCT? I am extremely keen to, but not sure how best to contact them and start the process. Ideally Id like to go for the Myeloablative protocol. The contact details dont see up-to-date?

        Regards, ms_interest

  2. I was wondering if anyone has had this
    procedure done in Mexico? If so,
    would you mind telling me where,
    who the doctor was and what the
    total cost was? I was diagnosed
    with MS in 2003 and am trying to
    find a safe and cost friendly place to
    have the procedure done.

  3. I have been suffering from MS for almost 30 years. I am Swedish and woud like to have a second chance with MS.
    I would like to be treated privately and pay for it.
    Please DO reply. F.Estakhri

    1. Hi Deepak yes it is very reliable – well over 500 have been treated there….it maybe closer to 1000 now. There is a group on facebook for people that have been and want to be treated there: Russia HSCT for MS & Autoimmune Diseases
      You should join in to get info.

  4. Hello all,

    did i do something wrong?
    english is hard ha
    i just wonder if the non mylo is also affecting fertility in makati med hospital…
    if so i’ll have to freeze semen i guess….
    please let me know.
    thx again.

    erwin belgium

    1. Hi Erwin, yes you are advised to freeze your sperm…especially if it is Myelo. Dr Fedorenko in Russia prides himself on preserving peoples fertility but he does Non Myleo……

    1. Hi Raza, no unfortunately the Indian facility closed a couple of years ago and as far as I aware has not re-opened.

    1. Hi Dianna,

      Please go to the Facebook page HSCT Awareness where you will find many people who have been treated and who are waiting for treatment dates. There is a wealth of knowledge, information and advice available. Good luck.

  5. Dear All,

    I am wish to go for the Myeloablative protocol. Does anyone know what hospitals have this (I know Heidelberg in Germany does), any others?

    1. Hi Sam,
      Italy does Myelo, and the Philippines does a version that is Myelo based, but has a unique protocol. I think Singapore also does Myelo. If you look on the Facilities list it should state which type each facility performs. You will also find contact information so that you can e mail directly. I should add that most of these facilites require that you show active inflammation and have proof that you have failed one or two DMD’s. Good luck!

      1. Many thank you for your help and advice. I have had RRMS for around 10 years. The last year I had MRI that show very active lesions and my walking is harder. The problem is that I have refused conventional DMT’s. Im worried this will be a problem, but I need to go for HSCT before things get worse. There doesnt seem to be contact info for makati philippines?

        Regards, ms_interest

          1. Many thanks. I did contact them, and their response was prompt and helpful. Their info says they do offer Myeloablative protocol. Im just panicking and scared that I will be refused, because I have refused conventional DMT’s (as evidence and data suggests that these arent really effective against gradual but sustained deterioration). I have lesions, the MRI shows these, but have yet (luckily) avoided a major relapse. So scared I will be rejected, I desperately want to get it done. Previous DMT’s shouldn’t really ‘impact’ or influence HSCT criteria :(

    1. Hi Raul, we are still researching the facility in India. As soon as I am happy that it is reliable and reputable I will post it on the World wide facilities list.

  6. Hi Terri, you should apply to Mexico, Russia, Philippines. You can find the details on the facilities list. They can independently access your suitability for treatment. This is the best advice that I can offer. Each case is different. Your EDSS is a factor in this. I wish you the very best. Tina X
