HSCT México

what is HSCT?

Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (HSCT) is an established non radiation chemotherapy medical treatment demonstrated to be effective to halt the progression in neurologic autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis. The aim of HSCT is to “reboot” the immune system, to stop it from attacking itself.
