Multiple Sclerosis Patient Says Stem Cells Useless

Amanda Bryson of Inverness has criticized Advanced Cells Therapeutics, which provided stem cell therapy for her multiple sclerosis. She says that the treatment is no better than conventional treatments and her illness has not improved.

Speaking to the BBC Two Newsnight programme Ms Bryson said, "I'm back to where I was before the treatment. It's quite gutting really, devastating. I had so much hope it was going to work and it didn't. I spoke to the doctor but I didn't understand what he was saying. He said he doesn't blame me for not wanting more treatment. I'm angry."

ACT uses stem cells to claim that treatments for spinal cord injury, lung cancer, deafness and HIV/AIDS will be successful. But BBC found that it was using cells that should not be injected into people as it increases health risks.
