HOUSTON, Feb. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Neurology Center, a medical group practice of top doctors devoted to excellence in care, located in Houston, Texas, working in conjunction with two leading neurology and anti-aging specialists from Houston, has made available one-month results of their randomized controlled study of intravenously administering NuPlasma® young blood plasma into the first thirteen of twenty Multiple sclerosis (MS) disease patients.
MS is one of the world's most common neurologic disorders, and in many countries it is the leading cause of nontraumatic neurologic disability. Nearly one million people are living with MS in the United States. MS is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. FDA-approved medications currently in use have been shown to "modify" the course of MS by reducing the number of relapses and delaying progression of disability to some degree, but do not constitute a cure.
The Neurology Center, in an unprecedented, randomized double-blind, placebo-controlled study, designed to evaluate the efficacy of 25 ml/kg intravenous NuPlasma® young Fresh Frozen Plasma (yFFP®) administered in two doses over three days, realized dramatic improvements in critical disease-conditions such as fatigue, mobility, concentration, and urinary control. These positive initial results reflects the Parkinson's disease (PD) patient results, in which PD patients infused with NuPlasma experienced significant improvements in pain, facial expression, speech, handwriting, tremors, rigidity and falling: https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/young-blood-plasma-parkinsons-disease-study-one-month-results-to-be-introduced-at-the-texas-neurological-society-winter-conference-in-austin-on-february-1st-300787105.html.
Importantly, the MS and PD improvements have been obtained "on top of" each patient's current standardized max therapy. Full and continuing study disease assessment, blood laboratory data, references, analyses and the protocol for both MS and PD patients is accessible online at: www.youngplasmastudy.com.
