According to the World Cancer Research Fund, Prostate Cancer is not only one of the most common malignancy in men but also one of the most commonly occurring cancer overall.

Everything you need to know about Alpha PSMA Therapy

Prostate Cancer is also the fifth leading cause of death from cancer in men. Disease progression and metastatic spread signifies the beginning of a lethal form of the disease – metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer (mCRPCa). The incidence of prostate cancer increases proportionally with age, especially in men above 60 years of age. Studies have also shown that incidence of prostate cancer also depend on demographics and racial prevalence – prostate cancer has a low incidence in Asia (3-8 per 100,000 men per year), an intermediate incidence in Africa and Eastern Europe, and a higher incidence in North America and Western Europe.

What Is Haematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant (HSCT) For Multiple Sclerosis. HSCT or Haematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant is not a new procedure; it has been used to treat cancer since the 1960s, however, it is relatively new treatment that attempts to control the eects of MS.

What Is Haematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant (HSCT) For Multiple Sclerosis

The objective of using HSCT as treatment for MS is to sort of ‘reset’ the immune system to prevent it from attacking the central nervous system. It is an intensive treatment pro- cedure that works by destroying the rogue immune system. In other words, the procedure involves the removal of the harmful immune cells that are attacking the brain and the spinal cord, and then using the patient’s own stem cells to effectively re-grow the body’s immune system. The point of the procedure is to ‘reset’ the immune system to prevent any further damage in the brain and the spinal cord. Since the patient’s own stem cells are used for the procedure, it is also known as an Autologous stem cell transplant.

Why is it Important to Start Early Treatment of Multiple Sclerosis. Before one begins to experience any symptoms of MS, early damage in the central nervous system can occur.

Why is it Important to Start Early Treatment of Multiple Sclerosis

Studies have shown that one of the best chances of reducing long-term disability is during the early relapsing phase of the disease that’s characterized by inflammation – MS often causes more damage in the first year itself than in years five to 10. Further, given that all currently available medications primarily target inflammation, starting the treatment early helps to minimize this inflammation thereby reducing damage to nerve fibres and loss of brain tissue. Unfortunately, there is no cure for MS, however, medicines and certain lifestyle changes can help manage the condition. A good MS Treatment Plan must focus on four key areas: disease management, relapse management, symptom management and general health. Disease Management: Relapse Management: How is Multiple Sclerosis Diagnosed.
