Your immune system protects and defends your body against foreign substances and diseases. But what if it mistakenly targets and attacks your own body’s healthy cells – in such a case, you would most likely be diagnosed with an auto-immune disease. Auto-immune diseases affect up to 50 million Americans and can target all different kinds of body tissue.
For those living with auto immune diseases such as lupus, Crohn’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, auto-immune hepatitis, relapsing polychondritis, myasthenia gravis or lichen sclerosis, Stem Cell Centers may help. For more information on each condition, please read below.
When it comes to auto-immune disorders, it is the immune-modulation properties of stem cells that can get your immune system to work properly again. The stem cells can modulate your immune system to work properly and stop attacking your own body. This means that the auto-immune cells damaging your body can dwindle by the numbers with the goal of limiting the disease’s symptoms or likelihood of the disease reoccurring.
