Embryonic Stem cells do help with auto-immune disease and more specifically Rhumatoid Arthritis (RA).
Rheumatoid arthritis results from a loss in the immunological self-tolerance which causes the activation of autoreactive T cells against joint components and subsequent chronic inflammation.
Several studies have shown that Stem Cells actually modulate the immune system and shut off the auto-immune responses while preserving the healthy responses for fighting diseases by inducing the production of T regulatory cells whose function is to protect the body against immunological self-attack.
This is why Embryonic Stem cell treatments are especially effective in helping people who suffer from auto-immune diseases, including Rhumatoid Arthritis.
When Stem cells are introduced in the body, the inflamed tissues start to create their own stem cells and produce anti-inflammatory agents locally without affecting the whole body immune response. The production of the body’s own stem cells lasts for about a week after the injection of embryonic stem cells. For this reason, we recommend a series of weekly injections to keep the body in a repair mode. A minimum of 3 injections is recommended. Another series of 3 injections might be needed after 6 months if the first one hasn’t completely removed the inflammation.
