Stem Cell Therapy

      Stem cell research using a patient’s own stem cells has saved a woman from chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIPD). Jennifer Osman received a stem cell transplant in 2005 that has probably saved her life.

      CIPD is an inflammation of the nerves that leads to a loss of movement or sensation. Jennifer had given up hope when by chance, she was watching TV and saw a report about a stem cell research program for multiple sclerosis at Northwestern University with Dr. Richard Burt. The next day, Jennifer called Northwestern and learned they were starting a trial for chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, a disease similar to MS.
