Dr. Shiva Gopal Vasishta Looks For New Treatments For MS

Multiple Sclerosis has become one of the main areas of interest for neurologists such as Dr. Shiva Gopal Vasishta who are looking for new ways of using the innovations presented by researchers from institutions around the world. In particular, neurologists like Dr. Shiva Gopal Vasishta have become interested in the use of stem cells as a way of making sure their patients are given the best opportunities to avoid a relapse or seeing the progression of their symptoms continue long into the future.


A recent study highlighted the use of a patient’s own stem cells that could be used to produce new blood that halted the progression of the passage of MS in those who were monitored for increased symptoms and the growth of new brain lesions. During the life of MS the disease is known to worsen, but a five year study by researchers showed the progression of the disease could be halted by stem cell therapies delivered over the period of the HALT-MS trial; the introduction of new blood cells is thought to allow the immune system of the patient to be reset and worsening symptoms held off by the stem cell treatments.

Dr. Shiva Gopal Visashta and his fellow neurologists are seeking new and innovative ways of finding success with patient research and treatment; Dr. Gopal Visashta is a renowned psychiatrist and neurologist who has brought his 40 years of experience to the Kennedy Health System in New Jersey.


In 1979 Shiva Gopal Visashta graduated from the Government Medical College in India before making his way to the U.S. to complete his residency at the Boston City Hospital. Dr. Gopal Visashta is always looking to bring his skills to as many people as possible by accepting a range of insurances, including Medicaid to make sure his patients get the best possible neurological care.
