Signs of a possible cure for MS

Hi, I read in todays Times that they have found a possible breakthrough cure in Canada for MS. It has had amazing effects on most of the patients, even though the sample size was small.

Has anyone heard it of any benefits to Ataxia or MSA sufferers?

I saw this on TV this morning😊 Let's hope there's a 'knock-on effect' for SCA😊xB

Have just e-mailed Prof Snowden at STH who was quoted in The New Scientist today to see if I am getting excited about nothing or if there is a knock on benefit to other neurological conditions such as Ataxia or MSA
