The Treatment of Autoimmunity Disorders with Stem Cells
When human body tissues are attacked by its own immune system, the body becomes the victim of the autoimmune diseases. Autoimmune diseases trigger unusual antibodies circulation in the blood, harming the issues in the patient’s body.
Autoimmunity disorders are the third largest health burden on people after a heart attack and cancer, as over 6% population across the globe is affected by these diseases.
Nausea, weakness, appetite loss, weight loss, yellow eyes, and back and stomach pains are some prevalent symptoms of most of the autoimmune diseases.
We can divide these diseases into two categories – organ-specific disorders and systemic autoimmune diseases. The organ-specific autoimmune diseases comprise several diseases as Hashimoto thyroiditis, type 1 insulin-dependent diabetes, Sjögren syndrome, pernicious anemia, and myasthenia gravis. Systemic autoimmune diseases include ailments like rheumatoid arthritis, polymyositis, systemic lupus erythematosus, and systemic sclerosis.
The analytical study on Epidemiology and estimated population burden of autoimmune diseases in the United States of America says that the most prevalent autoimmune diseases are rheumatoid arthritis, thyroiditis/hypothyroidism, Graves’ Disease/hyperthyroidism….
The women are more prone to become the victim of any autoimmune disease than men. Studies say women are nine times more vulnerable to these diseases than men are.
For several decades, the immunosuppressive drugs, like methotrexate, cyclophosphamide, corticosteroids, and azathioprine, have been used in the treatment of autoimmune diseases. These drugs can be and cannot be effective. Moreover, these have some serious side effects.
As studies to have better treatment for autoimmune diseases have gone further, many researchers have found stem cell therapy to be highly effective in the treatment of these diseases. The stem cell therapy is not new because this has been in practice since the 1990s. This started when autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation was done to cure severe autoimmune diseases.
Because its success rate has been quite impressive, many researchers recommend this treatment for better treatment of autoimmune diseases.
StemCell21 is a specialized team in dealing with autoimmunity diseases. The team uses advanced stem cell technologies to provide the best possible treatment to the patients. However, the expert doctors do not provide everybody the same treatment. They decide the direction of the treatment as per the condition of the patient.
