A Brief Review of Natural Therapies to Support Immunomodulation

Immunomodulation is the process of regulating the immune system to ensure it responds adaptively. Normally, the immune system self-regulates through mechanisms of physiological homeostasis. However, in several health conditions, including cancer and auto-immune disorders, the self-regulatory mechanism is unable to function optimally. read more »

Updates in Stem Cell Therapy for Multiple Sclerosis

Accumulating evidence from human studies suggests that autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (AHSCT) is successful at inducing long-term remission and improvement in disability for people with relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS). read more »
