Gopal Vasishta Research in the field of medicine is somewhat an unending cycle of events as scientists, and medical practitioners continuously try to come up with better methods of treatment, which can suppress some of the major ailments that exist in the today's society. Such a fact remains true for multiple sclerosis diseases, where there might be some light at the end of the tunnel regarding finding its cure. The disease is caused by the failure of the immune system of patients to coordinate with the central nervous system adequately. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease carried out research that took close to 5 years, with a total of 69 participants experiencing multiple sclerosis, being involved in the process. Evidence from the research clearly indicates that High Dose Immunosuppressive Therapy, in conjunction with transplanting the patient's stem cells, which are usually involved in blood cell formation, can mostly help in reversing the adverse effects posed by multiple sclerosis on a patient.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
