The Sheffield Autologous Haematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (AHSCT) team has pioneered the use of a breakthrough treatment, which is the first to significantly reverse disability of patients with active multiple sclerosis. The treatment is the result of a unique partnership between neurology and haematology departments at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals. Sheffield was the sole UK site in the international MIST trial which has shown the treatment stabilised the disease and improved disability in people who had experienced 2 or more relapses.
