Stem Cell Therapy for Myasthenia Gravis is a promising treatment and has shown many effective results.

A popular study on MG showed that 7 patients were treated with Stem cells and the study provides data of median follow-up of 40 months. It successfully concluded that the autologous stem cells are efficient in keeping MG patients disease-free for longer durations of time.[1]Bryant A, Atkins H, Pringle CE
