Brief Answer:
Stem Cell therapy in clinical trials

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for sending your query through Healthcare Magic.

I am unsure what the MRI findings have been over the past 18 years. Does it reveal progressive axonal damage? or remitting relapsing disease?
Stem Cell therapies have received tremendous attention due to its potential, however, I am uncertain as to if any Immunologist is doing this as part of regular treatment other than through clinical trials.

See this link: (I am sure you may already have)

I am sorry I cannot be any more helpful.

Best Wishes.
