I almost forgot. I tried one other therapy:
Tocilizumab (Actemra) - an IL-6 inhibitor
It dampened my symptoms like migraines from certain foods but was not more effective than UC-MSC or Rituximab. It is much cheaper though.
Hope all is well. I hope you do not mind if I ask a few questions. I have severe chemical sensitivity and just a few months ago have become chronically fatigued. I’ve been very interested in trying stem cell therapy, and wanted to ask how it worked out for you? I’ve read quite a few recently published scientific papers that strongly suggest that MCS is caused by neurologic sensitisation, and so I’ve found a stem clinic in Colombia that offer intranasal, intrathecal and IV delivery of stem cells. If the papers are correct, then at least the former two delivery methods should target the affected areas of the brain (olfactory bulb and pathway). Unfortunately I haven’t been able to find any information about stem cell treatment for MCS, and was hoping you wouldn’t mind sharing your experience with it? I’ve also seen from your previous posts that you have a lot of knowledge in this area and wanted to see if you have any thoughts on gene therapy as a potential course of treatment. I’ve read that certain individuals are more genetically susceptible to this condition than others and that a specific gene mutation is very common and highly likely to be linked to the disease. And lastly, just wanted to ask what has been your most effective form of treatment. Thanks very much and my best wishes
