Stem cell treatment shows promise

(KGW) An Oregon man with multiple sclerosis is seeing remarkable results after a stem cell transplant.
“All aspects of my life have improved,” said 28-year-old Dan Tiel, “I don’t even walk with a cane anymore.”

Tiel’s mother first learned of the clinical trial at Northwestern University while doing research on Facebook.

“I had been searching for hope for 10 years and this was the first time I really felt it,” Gina Tiel said.
Dr. Richard Burt said about 80 patients a year are getting the stem cell transplants at Northwestern for a variety of autoimmune diseases.
