HOUSTON, TX - Houston doctors have announced a promising new treatment for Parkinson's Disease and Multiple Sclerosis. Neurology Center doctors have completed infusions of 34 of 40 Parkinson's disease and Multiple Sclerosis patients in a controlled study of using young fresh frozen plasma. The results point towards a gradual improvement in the debilitating condition after only the first month of infusions.
The completion of infusions into all forty patients will mark a significant milestone. One-month results for all forty patients are expected to be released in early February 2019, three-month results in April and the six-month, final study assessments are to be concluded by July. It is our objective to determine from this study if subjective insights from the previous infusions of non-study patients and encouraging advances identified today from those patients receiving yFFP vs the saline placebo, confirm the practical use of yFFP to treat Parkinson's disease and Multiple Sclerosis," said Dian Ginsberg, M.D
