Potential MS "Cure"

This was on the local news (abc4) last night. This procedure uses intense chemotherapy to "reset" the immune system. 90% of those who had the procedure had no MS symptoms (or at least no progression) 1-3 years later.

This is a great prospect, but I still wonder if it is an actual cure. Relief of all symptoms for years with out additional medications is incredible though. I do worry about the effects of chemo, particularly on the reproductive system. I am not done having kids, so I feel this is not an option for me.

I still see CCSVI as a very likely cause and if that can be fixed then maybe chemo would not be necessary.
