National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) provisionally decide not to recommend ocrelizumab for people with primary progressive MS on the NHS. This is the first stage of their review into this new MS treatment.

Multiple sclerosis is the most common myelin disorder that affects the brain and spinal cord. The body's own immune system attacks myelin (the coating around nerve fibers) and inflammation occurs, causing myelin to disappear. Because of it, nerves get damaged, creating scarring and plaques. This disrupts communication between cells and can cause problems related to muscle movement, balance, speech and vision. The disease can progress to varying degrees of physical and cognitive disabilities. Multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, stroke, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and traumatic brain injury are the most commonly diagnosed conditions of the nervous system. Up until recent stem cell discoveries, treatment options were poor, and often not very successful. Symptoms progressed easily, and damage was irreversible. Treatment of multiple sclerosis with stem cells therapy includes four basic procedures. First is harvest, a fat extraction through simple liposuction process. Second is separation, stem cells are separated from fat in a centrifuge. Third is activation, stem cells with patient's PRP are photoactivated. Four is activation treatment, activated stem cells are returned via standard IV drip. The latest research revealed that stem cells have the power to do the ‘re-myelination’ of nervous system, improving symptoms and prolonging lives. When stem cells enter the body they find a place of damage and work on repairing it, but also create new, healthy cells. In multiple sclerosis patients, they recover myelin, which leads to reducing of symptoms. Improvements are building up in the next four months after the procedure. These revolutionary findings are considered to be the future of Modern and Regenerative Medicine. Patients have a hard time altering medications to suit all of their needs. Steroids or disease modifying drugs are aimed to manage specific symptoms, but they are often not fully successful in doing so, and cannot cover all the problems. Another concern is the critical side effects of drugs which sometimes dissuade patients from therapy. Because of this, many people turn to alternative treatments.

As the UK hosts a summit on the state of medical cannabis in Europe, BBC Reality Check asks - does Britain really export more legal cannabis than any other country? Pro-drug reform campaign group Transform says the government is denying that cannabis has medical uses while at the same time overseeing "the world's biggest government-licensed medical cannabis production and export market".
