We evaluated the feasibility and safety of therapy with mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) through consecutively intra-arterial and three repeated intravenous injections and compared the long-term prognosis between MSC-treated (n=11) and control multiple system atrophy (MSA) patients (n=18). The MSC-treated patients showed significantly greater improvement on the unified MSA rating scale (UMSARS) than the control patients at all visits throughout the 12-month study period. Orthostasis in UMSARS I… CONTINUE READING
