Extensive research in numerous areas of study is being witnessed in the world today. The research aims at achieving findings to improve the present or the existing conditions in different fields. Numerous medical and scientific studies are also conducted to improve the health sector. Of interest is the research on drugs. Scientists strive relentlessly to formulate drugs that offer treatment options for ailments. Among these scientists is Dr. Shiva GopalVasishta.Recent trials on high-dose immunosuppressive therapy have been proven to cause multiple sclerosis. This is an autoimmune disease where the immune system attacks the central nervous system. Five years after administration of this trial treatment, 69 percent of participants survived with no side effects even without taking any additional medication. This has, in turn, shown multiple sclerosis drugs to be less effective.
The HALT-MS trial was sponsored by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. The study by these researchers has borne fruits and their three-year result findings have been published. The findings prove that HDIT treatment is fully effective. Just a one-time treatment has been proven to works way better compared to other long-term treatments for people with multiple sclerosis. The success has, therefore, prompted the development of an even larger trial to compare the treatment to the standard of care of this ailment.
Dr. Shiva GopalGopalVasishta is a neurologist in Voorhees, New Jersey. He is a graduate of Government Medical College and has over 40 years of active practice. He also specializes in Psychiatry. Presently, he practices with Kennedy Health System Cherry Hill Campus. Besides, he is a certified member of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and NJ State Medical License.Dr. Shiva GopalVasishta advises that experimental treatment is aimed at suppressing progressive diseases, and it prevents further damage through the removal of the disease-causing cells and changing the immune system. The treatment is not entirely risk-free, but the side effects are minimal.
