Highlights On The Achievements Of Dr. Shiva GopalVasishta

Clinical trials findings recently gave indication that high-dose immunosuppressive therapy followed by stem cells transplantation can stimulate sustained remission of relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis diseases. Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease where the immune system attacks the central nervous system causing symptoms such as fatigue, pain, weakness, in addition to speech and motor skill problems.After undergoing the treatment using high-dose immunosuppressive therapy and autologous hematopoietic cell transplant for five years, 69% of the trial participants survived without adverse reaction of disability, new brain lesions, or relapse of MS symptoms. The trial participants did not take any other medication after receiving HDIT/HCT during the trial period. This is certainly one of the notable achievements by medical experts like Dr. Shiva GopalVasishta.The sponsors of the trial, commonly called the HALT-MS, included the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and the National Institutes of Health, and it was carried out by Immune Tolerance Network (ITN), which is funded by NIAID.

The three-year results of the study were released and published in ‘Neurology’, a medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology in December 2014.Dr. Shiva GopalVasishta is a Certified Neurologist operating in Voorhes, New Jersey. Dr. Shiva serves at the Kennedy University Hospital as part of a team of 34 health experts that specialize in Neurology.

New Clinical Trial Shows Promise For Multiple Sclerosis Remissions

A clinical trial conducted by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) shows a great deal of promise for the long-term remission of multiple sclerosis. The trial used high-dose immunosuppressive therapy that was followed up by transplanting the patient’s own blood-forming stem cells back into their bodies. This resulted in 69% of the patients taking part in the study experiencing no new brain lesions or other relapses in their disease. Also of importance, none of the participants in the study took any MS medications.

This way of treating multiple sclerosis could be a breakthrough as it was much more effective than currently available MS drugs. The Director of the NIAID, Dr. Anthony Fauci, said that results were very encouraging and his agency was already planning a larger, randomized trial to confirm the results. The principal investigator of the trial, Dr. Richard Nash, said that further evaluation of this method of treating MS is warranted and if a larger study confirms the findings then it will become the best option for sufferers of the disease.
