Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic disease that leads to inflammation of the joints and surrounding tissues. As it is an autoimmune disease, the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue and may also affect other organs. RA usually affects joints on both sides of the body equally. Wrists, fingers, knees, feet, and ankles are the most commonly affected areas.
How can Stem Cells treat Rheumatoid Arthritis?
Mesenchymal stem cells are proving to have significant effects on a variety of autoimmune type of problems such as RA. In general, the best results are thought to occur with direct administration of the cells directly into the joint(s) or immediately around the joint. There are a number of advantages to using human umbilical cord stem cells that do not require immune suppression and which can help balance immune function by changing the genetics of the immune reactive cells.
Recommended SC Treatments
Treatment for Rheumatoid Arthritis would involve 4-6 infusions of Mesenchymal stem cells via intravenous and/or intrarticular administration over the course of 4-6 weeks.
