Tell the FDA to Approve Stem Cell Transplant for CIDP, MS, & 21 Other Autoimmune Diseases

This petition had 13,956 supporters


HSCT (Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant) is a proven treatment to halt the progression of many debilitating autoimmune diseases, like MS (Multiple Sclerosis) & CIDP (Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy) and in most cases, reverses the menacing symptoms patients suffer from. HSCT has been successfully used worldwide for over 14 years and clinical trials have recently been completed in the United States. Unfortunately, the FDA hasn't approved HSCT as a "standard" form of treatment, so most health insurance companies and Medicare are refusing to pay for it. The sooner the FDA approves HSCT as a standard therapy, the sooner people suffering needlessly from these horrible autoimmune diseases, can be cured.  HSCT is expensive, but it is a one time cost to insurance companies. Instead, they are paying out hundreds of thousands of dollars more each year, for approved prescription medications and IVIG infusion therapies. Let's convince the FDA to speed up the approval process for HSCT, by signing this petition and helping millions of people, suffering from autoimmune diseases like MS & CIDP.
